Default Unlocking the key lock

Please Login to Remove!

When I unlock the keypad on my curve, the phone opens up a random application.

How do I make sure it just unlocks to the main screen?

I had that issue, especially with Google maps however, I found the best way is to close application when done by going to your menu button and close out. I also figured out this was slowing my phone down because application was still open.

Are you sure you're not accidentally hitting a key after unlocking?

So rather than just pressing the back key, I should manually close it - i shall give it a try

This is still happening, particularly going to the browser - is there a way of finding out what is running (similar to ctrl alt del on a pc).

Driving me nuts it is

Hold down ALT and press and release the Back key. You can then scroll through the open apps.
