"butt" dialing is a thing, you know.
Why not just accept that random/accidental phone calls can add spice to your life?

But, in all seriousness .... Even if that were possible - what would be the worst thing that can happen?
(I don't think that I have EVER pocketed my iPhone with the keypad screen open. :rolleyes: )

I always lock my screen before putting my phone back into my pocket.

However, I once had a 5 that had a (rarely) malfunctioning lock button. I only realized it was not locking every time I pushed it when my phone posted a status update to Facebook while in my pocket with my location and a bunch of gibberish text!

Seriously. I don’t want to be making accidental phone calls
I mean have u never used a smartphone? The behavior is the same and unchanged on all touchscreens for 10 years.

Why should it be different on the 8? I don't get the question
