    im guessing that this problem is human error since i cant seem to find any evidence of others having the same problem, but here goes.

    here is an example of the problem i am having

    i want to call a friend, so i open the phone and it shows my call history with the dialer in front to start with.

    the person i want to call happens to be in this list so i click on their name. the phone highlights it green for a sec while i push it, and then does nothing. it seems to me like this should start the call, but idk. no matter how times i try, single click doesnt do anything on this start page.

    if i long click, it opens options, none of which are "call".

    if i actually open the call history page then singe click works to start a call.

    what am i doing wrong?

    I'm experiencing the same issues with my hero also, my carrier is sprint... i called them and they sent me out another device. once, i got that device activated it started again with the same exact issues. They still do not know why i'm having these issues. But, all i can tell you is that you are not doing anything wrong.

    Single touch should make the call - but be aware that it somethimes take 5 seconds or so before the next screen comes up showing you are making the call. Can you make a call by going into the contact details and clicking the number there?

    I tried making a call by single touch and just dialing the number and push talk. either way there is still a lag or delay.

    I notice it has to do with the signal strength that you have. If you are down to just a couple of bars, it takes a long time to connect. You may notice the same effect on a regular phone.
