Default Phone Question:

Please Login to Remove!

On numerous occassions I have called someone (mostly my wife) without knowing I had called. It seems I have pushed the "call" button twice and it calls the last number I called. This is agravating to her (especially when I am in a distant time zone and call her at 0300 in the morning!!!). So my question is how can I stop that from happening??

How are you carrying it? I have mine by itself in my pocket or in a leather case. The keys are pretty flush with with face of the phone so I've never had it dial by itself. I find the keyboard lock annoying.

I used to have the same issue when taking the phone out of the holster. I'd inevitably bump one or more keys against either my thumb or the plastic of the holster. The best solution for me was to set the device to auto-lock when holstered so that when I'm pulling it out the keylock is always there.

Removing keylock (if there's no password on the device) is a simple as a flick of the thumb (well ... a scroll and click but it's still a single motion) and doesn't slow me down at all.
