    my pre dialed 911 last night while sitting on its touchstone in an empty room. has anyone seen this before?

    it is a standard sprint pre running unmodified webos 1.4.5

    *edit* it appears that when the phone is charging, it generates random input touches, whenever the screen is on. as such, i can no longer charge using my touchstone because it will eventually hit the right combination to make an emergency call. this behavior is new since i updated to 1.4.5. i'll try doctoring it tomorrow.

    I am experiencing the same issue! It has happened twice now. Anyone else seeing this?

    what happens after it dials? 911 operators have to record/respond to calls, so I'm curious if police showed up, etc.

    it terms of fixing it, there is a patch that removes the emergency dial shortcut and that may help you avoid this - depending on what is causing it...

    also, is there any chance you have a cat or some mice that could have been standing on your phone?

    I had my Pre call a number in my phonebook by itself. It was incredibly embarassing actually. I was up at around 12:30am and the phone was sitting next to me on the sofa. And all of a sudden it starts dialing one of my work colleagues (who was asleep at the time). I had to apologize profusely and try to explain that I dialed them by accident when in fact I never even touched my phone.

    And I've had other times when the phone dialer app opened up, but luckily it didn't dial a number. I think there really is an issue with the phone dialer app, or maybe with the touchscreen falsely detecting taps.

    Went ahead and installed the Limited emergency patch. Thanks for the suggestion. It's odd because my phone has never really had any problems with it "touching itself"...sigh.
