Phone Doesn''t Stay Locked

This phone locks by pressing the # key. It unlocks with the # key, and it doesn''t take much pressure to unlock it. I can''t count how many unwanted calls have been made from this phone while it was in my pocket or purse. And that''s with me being very careful! That is the main reason I have purchased another phone and will not buy this brand again. My advice: If you''re not using the phone, turn it off. And don''t program the speed dial numbers if you don''t leave it off--it is just way too easy for the phone to make a call without you knowing it! If you like privacy, you will hate this phone. Less
