Accidentally cut caller off when lifting phone to answer it. Hit red button... Help!

Well, I got my first incoming call just now on my Storm. As I picked it up to answer it, my finger hit the red "off" button and I disconnected the call!!! Yikes!!!! Smiley Sad

Does this happen to any of you? Is there any way to keep this from happening beyond being very careful...

Thanks!

My best suggestion would be to avoid hitting the red phone key. The reasoning behind this is because that is the button that ends calls. There is no other way to get around it.

Hey Tamrock, can you help me as well?  I see that you are great at solving problems.

Everytime I pull out the charger from my phone, my phone battery starts to drain very slowly.

Is there a way to prevent this battery drain when I pull out my charger?

I would recommend pulling the wall outlet with the charger and just carry that with you.

Thank you Josh for a brilliant answer Smiley Happy

 

Trojanberry, thank you for being facetious.

Facetious? I'm searching for a matching wall outlet carrying case on e-bay.  No luck yet.

Tamrock, many thanks! I was thinking perhaps there would be a way to re-assign that key or an option to make it inoperable when the phone rings ... Thanks again for your feedback.

Rosebudster, no problem!

 

Trojanberry, apparently the only humor you understand is your own. Have a wonderful holiday though!
