    Question Emergency call button

    When my phone is locked I find on the bottom of the lock screen the emergency call symbol which, if tapped, brings up the option to then dial 999. Problem is with my fat fingers is that I keep knocking this and so bringing up the option to deal. Luckily I've always noticed and then cancelled so no mishaps yet. Does anyone know if it's possible to disable this function on a non-rooted phone, or do I need to go down the line of rooting in order to remove this?

    It won't dial unless you continue and tap in 999 on the keyboard will it?

    I'm not sure and haven't tried, so to be safe I'd rather just disable the function if possible.

    Just checked and does look like you still have to key in the number first which is good. Think I'd still like to disable though if I can

    I don't have this so not sure but check in settings >lock screen and see if it is switchable from there.

    I've looked at everything and I can't find anyway of shuting it off.

    Well I looked at all the places I can think of but can't find anyway as well.. I'm assuming that its maybe something fixed in the phone as part of the O2 items loaded on. Thanks for looking anyway gang :-)
