    I've had this issue too. I accidentally hit face time, speaker, and even hung up on someone with my face during a call.

    I'm having the same issue

    I wonder if it's wide spread. Hopefully a firmware update can fix.

    Same here. I hung up on the same person like 6 times, put them on hold, speakerphone and tried to facetime chat with people ( my face likes to do face time the most :p)

    I hit 5# with my face during a call yesterday, but that was only on 1 call out of about 10. Still not acceptable, though.

    I noticed the same issue too but someone on here posted to try doing a "reset all settings" on the phone. Did that, and haven't experienced the issue since. Give it a try....

    I thought it was just me. This has happened to me at least 5 times now where I push buttons while on a call. I could swear the phone was solid on my face. Hmm

    I did that- as have many on the Apple support forums. But it didn't make a difference. I still am face dialing.

    For now, one workaround is to hit the sleep/power button as soon as you start a call. Then the screen is turned off.

    I am having the same issue, I would call and my face would hit anything o the screen. I never had this issue with all the iphones before from the 1st one in 2007 to the 3gs last year.

    unless you have the headset connected, pressing the sleep button will hang up the call.

    just talked to apple tech, she seems to think its a software issue and had me restored the phone as new to try it out for the next couple of days. She said she hasn't heard anything about this issue from customers or her colleagues

    Don't you love when Apple Store people or Apple tech support says that they never heard of a problem- but the problem has been discussed on both forums like this one and Apple's own discussion boards at length!

    When I picked up my iPhone 4 on opening day, the Apple store person told me they never heard of the face sensor issue, or of the yellow screen issue.
