    The last touch screen phone I had was terrible. it would randomly make calls in my pocket all the time. Is this also an issue with the iphone?

    How do you butt dial with a touchscreen...? :eek:

    Happened to me all the time when I had a dumbphone.

    Resistive touch screens. The ones that you have to actually "press" down to register a touch.

    unless you put your bare butt cheek on the phone or your phone comes into contact with your metallic underwear, the iPhone can't butt dial :D

    No. My iPhone never touches my bare ass, so the capacitive screen won't dial.

    Some touch-screens are "touch" sensitive, And not "Heat" like the iPhone. Which causes the "butt dial".

    Not to go off topic, but the iPhone's screen uses electrical currents not heat.

    The iPhone is not heat sensitive. It responds to the electrical conductivity of the skin.

    Never butt dialed, though I have received an occasional booty call.

    I never knew the "Technical" term. Not that it is one, I've always just thought it was Heat Sensitive.
    I mean, It makes sense.

    Had the iPhone 4 since day 1, now on the 4s.

    Yes, my 4 would butt dial ALL the time. I would turn the screen off after making a call, but somehow it would get turned back on and then it just takes one button to call back the last dialed number it seems.

    This thread is an example of how terrible the macrumors forum has become

    An experienced member needs to ask a question like this?.... Really?!

    I did before with my Droid 1, I have a butt shape that liked to speed dial. No problem since getting an iPhone 4 though.

    I can't see that happening with an iPhone really, my previous phones used to do it all the time, what a pain.. Never had it happened with the iPhone though, had iPhones for 4years.
