Has your iPhone 4 automagically unlocked itself?

    I just experienced a series of the phone unlocking itself. I noticed today that when I take it out my pocket it was unlocked.

    I hit the lock button as usual and drop it in my pocket, but I realised that it was locking, and then unlocking itself automagically!

    Anyone else experience this?

    LOL, I thought it automatically started accepting different carrier's SIM cards.

    Do you have a Bluetooth keyboard connected? If you do and you press any button on that keyboard the phone unlocks.

    Happens to me occasionally.
    It'll be sitting on my bed next to me and the unlock screen will show up as if I had pushed the home or sleep/wake button all by itself.

    The keyboard it is, I have a spare Apple wireless keyboard and I realised that it unlocks the phone when hitting a key.

    It was in my bag and I forgot to turn it off.

    OP, I haven't had this problem, but I think I do have a problem with it automagically activating the screen when on a phone call.

    Me too, lol.
