The touch of HTC One is so wrongly caliberated that touching anywhere on the screen answers the call (results in unwilling answer of calls when taking the phone out of pocket) or the emergency number 911 gets dialled from lock screen when the phone is in pocket...

Just now I got a call from the Sheriff's department about a 911 call made from my phone

Been using since it came out and has never happened to me. I'm going with user error on this one.

This. I even have home to wake enabled and it's never done this.

Never has happened to me. This is obviously user error. What a waste of a thread.

i can actually attest that this can happen cause it happened to me as well with my HTC One. I got a random call from the police department that my phone dialed the emergency number, all while my phone was in my back pants pocket

Definitely not a stupid thread. My friend has had a one for a few weeks now, and he keeps on complaining about how often he calls 911 from his pocket...

Maybe try disabling apps that causes the screen to turn on like some notifications. If it still occurs, try showing it to an AT&T rep. They should replace it.

If you have nothing to add, then why bother to reply. Seems a waste of time for you, since you have such important things to attend to. Since you think personal attacks are ok, how about you go back down into moms basement and clean up you room, mmkay?

This has never been an issue with any other phone I've owned, but it's happened twice to me now. I couldn't care less, and I don't consider it user error.

I did it 5 times in one day. I used to have no lock screen with just a password but now I have both and almost all notifications that turn the screen on are disabled. So far so good.

Even if that was actually a personal attack that doesn't make it okay for you to do it

I feel your pain, OP. Although I haven't had this issue with my One yet, I've dialed 911 from my pocket twice so far with my Galaxy S4. I turned off the "increase screen sensitivity" option, so hopefully it doesn't happen again. Either way, I think I'm just somehow bumping the "emergency dialer" thing from inside my pocket with the pattern lock set-up. Maybe you're inadvertently doing the same.

Ironically enough, a few minutes after being reprimanded by them for my latest 911 pocket call, 911 accidentally returned the favor and dialed my number by mistake
