I want my lock screen to actually lock the phone. I don't want to be able to unlock the phone and initiate a call by pulling the phone out of my pocket, or randomly select notification items if it bangs against my leg. Is there a way to just turn all that crap off?

For anyone interested in this functionality, I have logged a bug.

The only way to disable the pulldown is to not use the default swipe unlock. Switching to a PIN, pattern, password, or face unlock will get rid of that.

  • That's a bit annoying, really I want the swipe unlock without anything else being swipeable.

  • @robertc - Yes, I know, but for some reason, the functionality to disable that feature isn't included. I believe some custom ROMs implement such an option, but nothing stock AFAIK.
