    I'm going to chip in and say that I hate the feature as well. Some of us don't take our ipads outside, thereforce there's no need for a slide to unlock. A simple option in settings to turn it off is all that is needed and should not be hard to implement.

    A step further would be tie it to your wireless settings. When your on your home wireless - option to have it off. When on any other wiress or 3g...opt to leave it on.

    I believe there is something out there to delete the slide feature already. You can choose what method you want to unlock with, or simply disable it altogether.

    There is one for iPhone and if one doesn't exsist yet for iPad, I'll be willing to bet it'll be out soon.

    slide to unlock is fine. Its a way to make sure the device isnt accidentally turned on and wasting battery or worse messing with or deleting stuff without you noticing.

    I think if the lock screen is to much work for you, you're just being lazy.

    I hate this attitude that people take. It's OUR phone. I don't need someone to wipe my ass for me, feed me, or bathe me either. I certainly don't need someone to manage my lock screen or battery usage for me. I have a Droid X which thankfully removes this god awful feature if you so desire within the settings, and I haven't ONCE accidentally turned on my phone, butt dialed, or deleted stuff. Simply hit the lock button to lock and hit it again to unlock, no god awful sliding.

    What is fine for you isn't necessarily fine for other people. As you can see with the Droid X, it's certainly not that difficult of a feature to add, to be able to turn it on or off, so people can do what they want with THEIR phone.

    This kind of attitude is what ticks me off about my car...GM tells me when and when I cannot lock or unlock my doors. There is absolutely no setting on the Camaro to keep the doors unlocked, they automatically lock when you start to drive which is annoying if you are stopping to pick someone up, stop at the mailbox, etc. It's my car that I paid 34k dollars for, there is no reason I shouldn't be able to tell it to keep the doors unlocked at all times should I decide that's what I want.

    Furthermore, the phones won't work unless they have some sort of capacitive touch, so 99% chance they aren't going to delete anything while in your pocket unless you have your hands or some capacitive thing like a stylus in there anyhow. Certainly not enough to hold an icon in, wiggle it, then delete it and confirm deletion. Sometimes in a hurry or something that slide might be annoying. And if someone finds it annoying, that's their business.

    (I like how the doors lock when you start the car.)

    The screen works through cloths. I can put my shirt over my finger and the iphone still detect my finger through the shirt. Also I have put my iphone in my pocket before without locking the screen and when I pulled it out 1 app was deleted and all the icons were wiggling. The lock screen protect against that.

    Just because its "Your" device doesn't mean its supposed to do EVERYTHING you want it to do. There are things that I would like it to do that it currently doesnt. What do I do about it? dont post in a forum where noting comes of it, I submit a request to apple. If apple gets enough requests they look into the issue.

    Well I don't need to be babysat, and it's not a difficult thing to add (clearly, since some phones have the option of disabling it), so there really is no reason not to have it.

    It's not laziness as you describe it, it's personal preference. I've had a couple phones with the slide to unlock and it freaking blows. You may love it, but not everyone may love it and that doesn't make them idiot or lazy.

    And the forum is for public discussion. The OP was stating his opinion on the matter. If you feel the discussion is useless, no one is forcing you to be here participating.

    Clearly the iphone could easily have live wallpapers since some devices have the option. But it doesnt.
