    Quick question. I am a very happy owner of a Nokia Lumia 1020.

    Usually once or twice a day I will pull the phone out of my pocket and see the message Emergency calls only .... try again in 1 minute. I assume the phone is getting turned on in my pocket some how, because it never happens, sitting on a desk, or etc. I have turned double-tap to wake off and am still seeing it. Any ideas? It's starting to get frustrating.

    Are your jeans,pocket tight. It happens when you wear tight jeans and due to movements the phone lock button wakes the phone .its a great idea to keep a pass code , and I think you have one since it shows emergency call. Try changing touch sensitivity by going into settings,touch,and change it to normal(by changing it to normal you won't be able to use your screen while wearing gloves, here even if the phone unlocks in your pocket,chances will be very less since you have turned of super sensitive touch. )

    If all these does not solve I will personally recommend you to use flip case/cover for your lumia 1020, it will protect your screen from scratches and will solve your problem of unlocking in pockets.

    Thanks. Usually not tight pants, that's what makes it odd. I will turn down the sensitivity and see if that helps. I may give the flip case a try too, it wouldn't hurt. And yes I do have a pass code on the screen, I forgot to mention that. Thanks again.
