Apple iPhone Security: Pocket Dialing

Security is a very real issue these days. Here’s an ugly problem, the cause of which is baffling with the phone turned off.

My friend regularly pocket-dials me, that is, his phone dials my number and he is completely unaware of it. I can hear what is going on in the background... I hang up, not wanting to violate his privacy. Who else might he be dialing without knowing it?

This has happened to me also (pocket dialing) and more: up in the mountains, I’ve been photographing or fishing, when out of the blue my iPhone starts playing an audio book. WTF? It’s in my pants pocket in a case where the buttons are not easily pressed and the phone has been clicked off.

This is a serious bug that Apple ought to fix.
