So I just got my HD2 on wednesday and so far I love it. My cousin though probably doesn't. It seems to autodial her all the time. Her name starts with an A and is, from the top of the contacts list, located on the screen just above the normal menu bar. She has since been renamed by lastname and her original name was replaced with 611, so at least I just call T-mo.
I don't know why or all the different causes, but just about anytime the screen gets touched accidentally it just starts calling her. it's almost like it recognizes a slight touch as a slide over to contacts then if there is a second touch it just goes to start calling. The rest of my top 5ish contacts (alphabetically) have been dialed, but none more than this one. One thing that does it for sure though is moving the headphone plug around while the phone is on. That causes all hell to break loose. Basically it starts scrolling through the menu options, sometimes settling on internet, other times on audio (strange to be listening to slacker and then have one of the songs in memory start to play).
Is this common? Is it a signal interpretation (software fixable) or a bad mainboard/screen (hardware replacement)? Do I just go to my local T-Mo and ask for a swap out?
At the very least is there a way to reduce the hyper-responsiveness of the screen? How about a way to add one more layer of protection to pocket dialing, I'm thinking that instead of just calling the moment you touch a contacts name it actually ask you if you want to call them and require a slide (like answering a call). maybe a way to dump the sense, where all the sensative screen issues start) and just use the windows menu (flying window button option).
