    Does anyone know how to prevent making accidental phone calls. I find that I frequently hit the phone icon and my phone log will come up and I will touch a number and that number gets called. Last night I accidentally made a 7.5 hour long distance call.

    Hi! I accidentally make phone calls too and one cost me a very important friend. Long story. ANyway, lock your keyboard is the best advice I can give you. Hit the button on the top of your phone and the kb should not do funky things. My phone is so sensitive that it takes pictures when I place it down on a hard surface. It routinely opens apps with the slightest brush against it and I am forever making phone calls without knowing. LOCK THE KB!!!!!!!! I learned the hard way.

    You can also password lock your phone and turn off the option to allow phone calls while locked in settings

    I can see how either of the above options would work when I am picking up my phone, but this happened as I was putting down my phone after sending an email. On second thought maybe deliberately hitting the lock button may have helped.

    I was constantly having the same problem. The 2 things I did to solve the problem was (like said above) was to lock the screen and constantly clear my called list. I found that it automatically calls people that are in your recent call list. If there is nobody in the list it has nobody to call.

    A case can help if you toss it in a pocket or purse.

    Someone else mentioned that they have been warned by the Police - 911. Apparently, that emergency call option canNOT be turned off????

    If you keep the phone app running just leave it on the dial pad screen. This is what I do to stop dialing people. It will just type than

    This happens a lot with me too, even with a Q5. Even if my phone is locked it manages to click some pictures, and sometimes a couple of phone calls. I blame 'swipe to unlock'. Had to turn it off, even though I love it.
