Default Phone answers or hangs up when pulled out of my pocket

Anyone else having this issue? When I take the phone out of my pocket, sometimes it is fine, sometimes it hangs up, and on occasion, it will actually answer the call...any ideas?

first call I got after de-selecting that setting hung up when I pulled the phone out of my pocket, so that seems to have not made a difference.

Do you have gestures turned on?

That's what is causing you to hang up. It somewhat sensitive and I noticed to reduce it from happening I had to flip the phone keeping the screen facing outward than towards my thigh. I think there needs to be an adjustment.
