How can I exorcize the poltergeist living in my phone?

I have a Motorola KRZR phone. It keeps taking pictures of my pocket and spontaneously starting the MP3 player. How can I fix this?

I've had a Motorola KRZR phone for a while now and for the most part it works fine for me. However, it has two tics that drive me nuts. First, it takes pictures in my pocket. I think it bumps up against things in my pocket and then takes a photograph. Second, the MP3 player will frequently start while it is in my pocket. I never use the MP3 player capability of the phone and so it just plays the first sound that's stored in the memory. This is also annoying. (Not that it playing any other sound would be less annoying.)

Is there any way to stop this from happening, preferably via some setting on the phone?

It sounds like the buttons on the front of the phone are getting pressed. You may be able to disable them in the settings.

Lock it.

Is there any way to figure out what the existing unlock code is? I don't remember ever accessing this option but the default doesn't seem to work.
