On Saturday I was holding onto my phone, doing lots of things, and noticed I accidentally called a friend. My iPhone showed that I was 15 seconds into a call to my friends Tracey & Vito. (Hi again if you are reading this.) This is not the first time this has happened. I remember accidentally re-dialing a Hilton in Boston once. After a friendly hello and sheepish explanation to the reservation clerk, I hung up.
On Saturday, I hung up on the accidental call and then purposely called my friends back to say hello and explain that my leg accidentally called them. What a nice way to say “Hi” and add a little humor to one’s day…
If you’d like to avoid doing this you can put your iPhone in sleep mode and lock your touchscreen: http://www.ehow.com/how_2274575_lock-iphone.html.
Locking your phone will conserve your battery’s usage too.
Do you have a story about receiving or placing an accidental call? Please comment.
