Dare pocket dials?


Feb 9, 2009, 8:51 AM
Is pocket dialing a problem with the Dare? I'm getting this phone in 4 days and I just read a negative review about it on Amazon. His main complaint was that it pocket dials alot. He says the phone's lock is nearly useless and doesn't prevent the misdials. Is this true? Have other Dare owners had similar problems? I plan to carry the Dare in my pocket (with a full-body Zagg InvisibleShield) and I'm not getting a plan with a ton of voice minutes. Pocket dials would not be good for me. Any experience?

I work in an indirect store and I had this phone several months months before i got my Storm. I pocket dialed once and that was because i was just moving some icons around the front screen and did not lock it before i slipped it back in the pocket.

I have had no customer complaints about pocket dialing which were a result of the phone or the unlock button.

I have had customers come in who have pocket dialed because they were either doing something similar to what i was doing. I also had one that had a defective lock feature.

Dont worry though. It is not a known issue or something to worry about as long as you remember to lock your phone. It does lock automatically when a call is ended. Locking the phone is a real easy habit to ...

If you're worried about that, just buy the plastic holder, which covers the front of the phone. If you're just covering the screen and throwing it into your pocket, then make sure (a) you have auto-lock ON at all times---some people hate/like this feature and (b) make sure when you place it in your pocket that the screen in facing toward your leg.

Thanks for the info guys. That makes me feel better about it. I get it the day after tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to it!

Just waite a few seconds before throwing it in your pocket so it locks. If you get off the phone and put it in your pocket real fast and you didn't lock it yourself it can be bothersome

Had the phone now for a month and I've had one accidental call. Every once in a while it will unlock in my pocket, and I'll pull it out to see the calendar up or something like that. Nowhere significant enough to warrant worrying about though...

Oh, and I'm just using a screen protector and nothing else.
