My sleep/lock button on top of my iPhone 4 is broken so I can no longer lock my phone without waiting for the autolock to kick in.  Unfortunately my phone is out of warranty and I am not able to upgrade my phone until september which means 7 months of frustration.


Does anyone know of an app that allows you to instantly lock the screen?!  I have found some that lock documents etc but not the phone itself.



iPhone 4, iOS 5.0.1
