Reffering to this item of the off-topic list in the help section:

  • Recommendations, like "Which phone is better?" or "Can you suggest an app that does X?"

I would like to ask this:

It already happened three times. My Motorola XT890 locked itself from being kept in the pocket, showing the 'too many password attempts' screen and requiring Internet connection to get unlocked via a Google Account.

If there's no Internet connection active when it got locked, the system won't offer a standard way of activate it to be able to authenticate, leaving us to a factory reset and some other complicated ways to bypass this problem.

Thinking about avoiding getting into this situation again, what choices do I have among apps and configuration settings with the unlocked phone?

Is it too speculative and off-topic?

    Unless I'm misunderstanding your question, it would seem like you could simply not ask What apps can I choose from?, but instead ask a more general How can I prevent this? If the solution happens to be an app, then people will typicaly be more than happy to suggest one to you. – eldarerathis Feb 1 '15 at 1:10
  • Thanks. I'll change the question and ask. – vmassuchetto Feb 1 '15 at 10:21
