Default unlock and lock

Please Login to Remove!

I noticed something weird with my phone.

I always lock my phone whenever I am not using it. But everytime when I received a call and ended the call, I noticed my phone is being unlock. So, I was thinking maybe it is the way it works - the phone has to be unlock in order to initiate a call.

But for these couple days, when I tried to lock my phone after ended a call (i am so used to this action already), I notice my phone is still locked.

Can someone tell me how yours lock/unlock works after ended a call?

I would really prefer my phone will always remain locked all the time, and will only unlock whenever I wanna do it manually.

TIA.

Default options/security options/general settings

options/security options/general settings
There is a setting that will allow out going calls while locked. Have you checked this?

no, that's not my question.

the reason i lock my phone is because i dont want it to be able to make a call accidentally, that's why i lock my phone.
