accidental 3-way call?

    I am a new user and this could have been some bizzare newb thing I have to look out for, but this was odd. I was talking to a friend (friend #1) for a while (no headsets or anything, just holding against the ear). Near the end of our 30 min talk, I hear another voice. Thought it was just some racket in the background, hung up on friend #1, and on the line was friend #2. Friend #2 says 'who was that you were talking to, I heard the whole conversation.'

    That freaked me out. Anyone accidentally do this? I doesn't seem that all the buttons you'd need to do a 3-way call would have actually be done in sequence with me not knowing and talking on the phone. What if this happened during a business call or something...

    I felt like I was in that Seinfeld episode where Jerry and George are on the phone and the girl on the other end of the phone heard the whole conversation.

    Haven't seen this yet. However when using the keypad for number prompts on an automated system, if I enter more than 6 numbers, it starts dialing the number after the 6th, which is weird.

    In your case, I would make sure your proximity sensor is working, otherwise you may be face dialing.

    i have also heard and seen this happen....i have also seen Eris answer the 1st call, then automatically answers the 2nd call and puts the 1st call on hold all this WITHOUT removing phone from ear...could be a face--touch screen sensor thing!

    I have had a similar problem. My Eris was moving slow one day while I was trying to make a call. I thought I had hit my shortcut once but there must have been two presses becuase after the intended call started, about 30 seconds later the phone put the call on hold and started to dial another number for a conference call. I had to hang up on both parties and recall the first.
    This has only happened once, but I could see this happening again since the phone does experience some lag every once in a while.

    your chin hits the send button which launches the three way call. I think this was fixed in the latest update that was pushed ota. Now its a bit more of a process where you have to hit menu then add call. Since the update my phone hasnt done it.
