Pocket Dialing

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.
