    Have any of you guys had any issues with your iPhone 6S inadvertently dialing "Pocket Dialing" people on your contact list?

    Mine does it every now and then, and the calls don't even show up in the "Recently Called"

    Thank you

    My iPhone 6 does this now, and my prior phone iPhone 5c did this as well. I don't think its specific to the 6s

    Don't see how it can happen unless you don't lock the screen before you insert in your pocket.
    Never had this happen. Also, never in my back pocket.

    And if it did butt dial it should show up in the "recently called" list.

    Yes that is weird. It should show up there. Sounds like quantum physics might be involved.

    No, never; however, then again I do not place my iPhone or anything in my back pocket. I also suggest that you do not do that either for, when you sit down, you'll add unnecessary pressure on the phone as well as on your pants' fabric, too. :rolleyes:

    Once on my 4s I was talking to someone and when they hung up I found myself talking to my father. Phone did not ring, I did not answer, he just was on the line. Father said he never heard a ring, just that I was on line with him. Only happened once, way weird.

    I just had an issue this morning that it "butt" dialed a number twice, and in both cases the phone app was not active, I have no idea how it occurred.

    My mom butt dials me all the time. And it usually happens multiple times in a row...usually 3 times and a few minutes apart. It happened with her 5s and now her 6s. She's 71 so I cut her some slack on this issue but I am always surprised how it keeps happened;). Her phone is set to lock with a password pretty quickly.
