Exactly, TheSarge--when I got one of those new fangled phones 2 years ago I did that immediately because it allowed me to dispense with the belt clip. I always had problems with belt clips. Phones would hook on something and fall next to the car seat or somewhere worse when I was using the commode.
However, that only works if you have the right phone. Some phones will activate the unlock screen without that top button push and then after a number of incorrect password attempts by your butt or thigh, it will present a button for making an emergency call and then the person's butt or thigh is all too happy to oblige. This is partly a software design problem that some phone manufacturers need to be convinced to fix.
Suggestion: I used to do a lot of these butt calls.
Then I just remembered what I used to do with our regular home phone: Hang it up.
I am not talking about ending a call. Actually hit the button on the top of the phone that blackens the screen, which, in essence, 'hangs' up the phone. I am down to 0% butt call since I've done that protocol.
I call it "pocket dialing". cause i dont know anyone that puts their phone in their back pocket. But 1/5 calls, thats WAY too many...
"Does this accidental 911 call make my butt look big?"
