    Lock Phone Problem, does not autolock after call comes in.

    I have a PPC-6600 (camera) with Sprint, and after I hit the power button to lock the phone (so I can put it in my pocket), it locks correctly, and calls come in instanly like it should

    The problem is, if a call comes in, I have to manually lock it again whether or not I picked up the call.

    Why is this a major problem??? If the phone is in my pocket and locked, and I get a call but didn't hear it, the phone is now unlocked in my pocket, calling people and clicking things it shouldn't.

    MAJOR PROBLEM.

    Am I doing this right?

    PS. How do you make it so that it auto locks the phone after a time period. Going to Settings->Power->Advanced actually powers off the phone after inactivity so no calls come in... I think. (Thats what it did last night at least)

    What are you using to "lock" the device? The built-in password protection?

    I have seen this! I think that it is a MAJOR loophole for anyone who DISPLAYS OWNER information!!!!. I use XXXX on the last 4 digits on the phone number. So if you loose it & you have the GPS locator ON, maybe sprint can jump on the network for you to find the phone... I just hope that I never misplace the phone....
