Default How to stop making acidental calls?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a BB 9000 and every so often I accidentally make calls which have cost me dearly on pay as you go.
My current case is soft (real) leather and does not stop the problem.
I need a case which has a bit of a gap between 'phone and case so keys cannot be pressed inadvertantly.

Thanks

Or lock your device with a password.

This is the right answer. A case will not help.

friend, just check the setting of your cellphone. Also, I think its one of the business crime of some networks to stole loads from their clients. I heard a lot of my friends same problem as you have now. This {spam site} give you hints.
