    Is it possible to lock phone numbers to avoid accidental selection ?
    I find the touch screen so sensitivee that it is too easy to select adjacent wrong numbers

    Not sure, I had the same problems initially, but I got used to it in eventually.

    One thing I did find helped was a screen protector, it took some of the sensitivity out of the screen.

    You could also try adding the HTC Contact Widget to one of the homescreens, the space given to contacts on that is a bit bigger than in the standard phone book so it should minimise accidental presses. I'm not sure if you can select your whole phone book or just recently used/favourite contacts though?

    Try 'call confirm' from the market. Stops accidental wrong numbers.

    If you use bluetooth for handsfree, check the settings to disable confirmation.

    1st post, hope you find it useful ;)

    +1 for Call Confirm. I somehow managed to accidentally call people when the phone was in my pocket (they should have called me clever dick :D ).

    Now using this app coupled with making sure I lock my phone before putting it in my pocket has solved the problem.

    That call confirm sounds a good shout. I personally made a couple of phantom calls, so I put a pattern on the lock screen

    I've got the same problem, can't get used to the sensitivity of the screen and I keep calling people by accident, is there some way to reduce the screen sensitivity?
