Here is a work round for your problem.
Go onto Google Play Store and look for Magiclocker Main and install it. I can't add the link because it is a https:// address and it won't work. On that same Google page, look on the left hand pane and you will see a theme called Sense 3.0 for it. Install that as well. Your lockscreen will now look like the HTC one with a 'ring' unlock.
I've tried it for you and it works.
You might like to set your Samsung lockscreen to 'None', but you don't have to.

> In reply to Olanray @ 2013-06-23 00:49 from fsVe - click to readThanks olanray. That is the published work-around for the issue. It doesn't solve the problem 100% as you can still pocket-dial emergency numbers and you cannot take advantage of the lock screen shortcuts.

I have actually traced back the issue to the swipe anywhere unlock of the SIII mini. I have previously used and HTC One V which has a ring unlock feature. For my pocket to unlock the device then, my pocket has to specifically touch the ring first and then swipe to unlock the phone. With the SIII mini, my pocket just needs to slide off the screen when it is on wake and viola, the phone is unlocked.

I hope that if ever this phone gets 4.2.2, additional options will be done to solve this.

1- Dual sim
2- Bigger, beautiful screen.
3- Jelly bean with most of the Note 2 tweaks, like 2 apps open simultaneously in the same screen.

I remember reading a similar comment in the past but I can't seem to find it or if there were any responses to it. It 's that I often find my SIII mini pocket dialling
or texting (or other random things) whenever I leave it in my pocket for some time.

I've discovered that when I receive a message, the screen wakes and since my lockscreen is only swipe to unlock, the contact with my pocket unlocks my phone and starts doing crazy things.

I've had other android phones before but never seemed to have this problem. Is this a device issue or is there a setting that I need to adjust?
