    Why not just switch it off, the screen lock will then prevent inadvertent operation.

    Turn the display off prior to placing it in your pocket? :)

    Other than that I have no idea because regardless of where the "phone" button is you'd end up pressing it if u didn't lock screen before putting it in your pocket.

    Just for the record - I had my phone call Europe after placing it in my front jean pocket with the screen off and the face my thigh. This happened while riding a motorcycle. I have since been using the additional locking slide code feature and the phone is now under control (HTC Hero). I do love this phone...

    Their is a app called Not call Log.
    That would sort out your problems.

    The screen won't work in your pocket as it's a capacitive screen and requires something (like human flesh) to conduct electricity from the screen into the object that's touching it. Your pocket lining is normally made of cotton or plastic is therefore non-conductive. I suspect you are pressing the physical 'call' button.

    When the phone is in sleep mode (and it was) the call button is disabled. Yet the phone wakes up when in your pocket because pressure is applied to the Menu button. Then once it's on and awake pressure on the call button will initiate a call from your pocket.

    We need an app to disable the Menu button while the phone is sleeping in our pockets!

    The only other solution readily available is utilizing the security code slider lock.
