    ok i just got back from my sprint store, not sure what to do.
    heres the issue
    problem: step 1. open contacts select a contact
    2. press green call button to make the call.
    the phone dials the wrong number.
    it seems random which number it picks to dial
    they were going to reflash my phone to 2.1 again, but on a whim he took out his
    moment and tried it, his phone was doing it too...
    he asked another rep over to try his phone and it was missdialing as well
    when you tap the number it dials correctly

    can anyone check their phone to confirm if this is a 2.1 glitch?

    I can confirm this. It does it if the contact you choose has more than 1 phone number. It'll just dial someone @ random, unless it has its own agenda. When I chose a contact with only 1 number, I couldn't dial with the green button, rather I had to tap the "call number" on the screen to complete the call. Weird....

    Just reading this I gave it a try and Yes it dials some other contact when you are viewing a contact with 2 phone numbers and pushing the green(call) key... damn Sprint, Damn You Samsung!!

    In light of the 2.1 issues, I am going to gut/re-start the "comprehensive issues" thread. Please join me there in cataloging the new issues.

    Pressing the green call button on my phone when on a contact does nothing. I have to touch the phone number to call.

    How peculiar. I'd probably never have found this bug, I always touched to dial anyway. Definitely weird though...

    I can actually see an animation of the phone 'clicking' on someone else's name if I use the call button.

    I can't seem to reproduce this bug...are you talking about the physical green call button or the little green phone icon next to a contacts phone number? Either way, it has called the correct number each time...if everyone else has this bug, I must be doing something wrong when I attempt to reproduce it.

    Tested this just a few moments ago and got the same results. Its almost laughable.

    Im tempted to play with it just to see who I can randomly dial.

    I also have had the same problem on my phone and my wife just told me she is to. I have re-flashed 2.1 and the same issue is present. I don't foresee them fixing this anytime soon, but I'll keep hope alive.

    I too am getting the same random number dialing. But I don't know if this was happening in earlier versions or not because all my contacts have at least 2 numbers so I have never tried to dial using this method. I have always pressed the number that I want to dial. This really not a problem for me, just "old habit" I guess.

    Yeah it seems they are talking about the physical call button. The icons on screen work fine. Doesn't matter if the contact has 1 or several numbers. Pressing the button dials a random number. If the contact has no number listed (just an email address for example) it does nothing. I rarely press that green button so I doubt I ever would have noticed this.

    The Green button is a Redial for the last person that you called.

    In Android 1.5the Green button would dial the contact who is selected. In Android 2.1, you have to touch the contact then touch the phone number you want to dial.

    I'm not sure if its a bug or an interface change.

    I can tell you it has nothing to do with who you have recently called... This has happened twice and both times it was people I don't think I have talked to since I have had my Moment...

    In addition, since upgrade to 2.1, none of the contact numbers with *82 prefix show up in contacts. When I go into edit mode, the *82 prefix numbers are present; they just don't show up when viewing contacts. This is a significant problem, as I need to block my number for most calls, but unblock for others.

    Do any of you know a setting fix or workaround? It makes no sense to have to dial these numbers...

    Thanks
