The original design on that phone had one press and hold the A key to lock the inputs, and then hit a two button combo to unlock it. Simple, effective, no accidents. No chance of butt dialing the wife from a noisy bar when you're supposed to be working late. With the torch you learn quickly that a screen lock app is essential on this device.
Thats the thing - I tried and purchased the autolock and also stormslider, tried them both and both useless. No options to assign the screen lock button as no-assignment. Having the apps only make it so you need to unlock it twice, one for the screen lock button, and the other for the app!!!! How can you find them any use?
