    Power Button...the only way to activate a phone that is asleep?

    Ok, so I have had my Fascinate for about 3 months...and the biggest gripe I have is that to "wake up" the phone from black screen is that I have to press the power button, then slide the puzzle piece (or slide glass)....is there anyway to set so that when you tap the screen you can then do the slide, or am i stuck hitting the power button every time? I previously had a Droid X (that i HATED by the way) that to "wake up" the phone, you just touched the screen....any helpful hints?? Thank you!!!

    Unfortunately the power button is all we have.

    if you have a case of some sort on your phone it makes finding the power button so much easier. when i dont have my case on it i struggle to hit the power button when only holding the phone in one hand but if i have my case on my finger goes right to power button making it much easier. just an idea but ya for all i know the power button is the only way

    There is a "hidden menu" where you can turn the puzzle lock off completely. You would still have to wake the phone, but can use the power OR volume buttons, which are less awkward. Search this site for the hidden menu.
