Is it possible to remove this feature? It's really annoying when you miss-click on it. Since my iPhone lags a lot this happens too often.
- iOS version: 4.2.1
- iPhone: 3G
Unfortunately there is no way to do this in native iOS.
The emergency call option is available with both the simple and complex passcode.
I assume the goal is that it would allow anyone to make an emergency call even if they don't know or forgot the passcode, and as a result could be an important safety feature.
The only way to disable it is to turn off the passcode - something with obvious undesirable effects.
