LG Cookie (KP501). Can i make the pin necessary after unlocking?

Hi, I just got the LG Cookie, and was very pleased with it up until now. I can't seem to sort my problem anywhere, so I figured best place to go was a forum.

As always, I put my phone in my right pocket. The other day I took it out, and found that I'd called someone twice in an hour. I figured I'd just forgotten to lock it, and so I locked it again. Today, I had my phone out, locked it, put it away. About half an hour later, I heard ringing, and it turned out my phone was ringing the same person again.

The button that unlocks the phone is at the bottom of the screen, and so is the contacts list, the contact that the phone keeps calling, and the call button, and so obviously when the phone is pressing against my trousers, it is pressing these buttons and calling this person.

To cut it short, I thought I'd make the phone require a pin when I unlock it, but I can't seem to be able to do this. Does anyone know how, or any other ways I can stop it from calling people?

Any advice is welcome, thanks.

I assume its calling the person who is the 1st entry in your fone book.

Why not create a new 1st entry which is just made up and will not connect to anyone.

It's the person at the bottom of the first page of contacts. Her name begins with a C. I can't believe I never thought of creating a false contact, thanks very much. It's not ideal, but it's a solution to my problem. If anyone has any other ways of preventing the phone from unlocking it will be much appreciated. I will create this false contact right away, thanks alot.
