I keep accidentally pressing the button on the earbuds when it's in my pocket.

Any of these would be great for me:

  1. Disable the button only when the device is locked
  2. Disable the button always

Low-tech solution, but I just wrapped a bit of black tape round the button on the headphone cable on my last phone, worked a treat! – GAThrawn Oct 15 '10 at 18:59

Headset blocker will disable those buttons. It's a widget, not an app.

Thanks. Will accept if I can't find anything that will automatically do it when device is locked. – Allain Lalonde Oct 15 '10 at 15:03

Try Galaxy Music [Button Disabler]. It is the best solution for locking the music button.

It costs .99 cent though.
