    For anyone who has received the incredible have you had any problems with pocket dialing? My Eris does it all the time and its really annoying. Also when you hit end call on the eris sometimes it would redial which also was a pain. Anyone have an issues with either of these?

    I have to believe that there is an app to prevent this.

    I figured there wouldnt be an app for this i meant if like they changed the lock screen so that it stays locked in your pocket unlike the eris so that it wouldnt randomly dial peoples numbers.

    Just use a lock. They both should have a pattern lock which will prevent any accidental dialing. I've also used lockbot pro and it works pretty well.

    I was helping a friend update his Eris to 2.1 yesterday and we found that all you have to do to get past the lock is press the Menu button on the front. It doesn't make sense that this is a way to bypass the lock but it worked every time. He places his in a holster on his hip and still has trouble with pocket dialing.

    Enable the pattern unlock. settings>security and location...scroll down to screen unlock pattern and select "set unlock pattern". Choose your pattern, confirm it and your all set. The menu button will not unlock it after enabling this.

    You can use this app for preventing redial when you hit end call..

    Not Call Log - Android app on AppBrain

    I have used it on the Eris and programmed it to go to the home screen when I end a call. Hope it helps!
