    May seem like a strange request, but...

    Coming from a "dumb" flip phone, its way too easy for me to accidentally dial a number while messing around with my contact list and call history.
    I will be swiping down the list, and it will dial a number if my finger rests too long on a contact.

    Is there a way to require that I hit the "call" button before dialing anybody's number?

    There's an app called Call Confirm that will ask you for confirmation before dialing. This should help you out a little so you don't mistakenly call the wrong person.

    It's still a little buggy (showing numbers as "unknown" for some contacts), but the developer is working on it.

    Cool thanks. I may eventually download an app like this, but I was hoping there was something I was missing in the stock settings that I could change.
