    Is it just me? For awhile now, I've been accidentally muting calls, or accidentally selecting FaceTime. It's been fairly recently, maybe since the last iOS update but I can't be sure. Am I the only one this keeps happening to? Did they change the position of the "buttons", or the sensitivity somehow? My face hasn't changed. :)

    Sounds like your proximity sensor might not be getting activated as quickly as it should be when you put the phone to your face/head. Try to make sure that the top of your phone where the camera and earpiece are is clean and not obstructed in any way that might interfere with the proximity center. Try restarting your phone as well in case you haven't done that in some time and there's some glitch of some sort somewhere.
