I can't count the times , usually in my car, when I finish a call and put the Droid in my shirt pocket and it dials someone. The problem is that when a call ends it goes to the call log screen. If your shifting around in your hand the slightest screen touch calls a number. I know there is an app that will take it to home screen after a call. Does anyone remember the name of the app?

Yeah, I'd say just turn pattern lock one (it wont kill you) and press the lock button when you're done.

I've seen this on here a number of times but have never experienced it personally.

I've never had this problem either. I always press the lock button before putting it in my pocket.

The app that you are looking for is called "not call log" search for it in the market. It is free and has a good rating. oops guess i was late. sorry.

jsh,
Thanks a lot. It works perfectly and that is the end of the problem. I know I could hit the lock button, but when your driving you can be moving the Droid around in your hand and hit the screen without noticing and then hit lock, but it is already dialing. Now you have to bring it out of lock and get back to dialer to end the call. With this app this problem will not happen.

I would also recommend not call log, you can choose what ou would like the phone app to do after you are done with a call.

I've never had this problem, but I dont use the app either.

Why are you using a handheld phone while driving?

lol, it's not illegal everywhere. I've been doing it for years, never been in an accident while driving, ever, for any reason. Though I've been in 3 accidents as a passenger.

this has not happened to me even once. the lock screen prevents it from pocket-dialing.
