Is there a way to prevent turning the sound (silencing the phone) off from the lock screen? This is a Motorola Droid 4.

I notice I've missed calls and check only to find that the sound has been turned off. I always make sure to turn the screen off thus activating the screen lock when I put the phone in my pocket. However, I see that the touchscreen still allows the speaker to turn off. Is there a way to deactivate this? I tried using the Droid inPocket app and it didn't solve the problem. In fact, I'm not sure what it did do.

Essentially, if there is not an option in your security settings, you'll need to replace your lock screen.
