I cannot talk in a comfortable way!

When I'm talking at the phone sometime my skin touches the pad, and I began to put the phone on speaker, on hold, on mute..... is really a problem talking that way.  where i can set the phone so that cannot happen?

Re: I cannot talk in a comfortable way!

Other people have mentioned this concern.  However, it's surprisingly easy to fix and requires only a bit of practice.


While holding the phone, move the bottom of the phone out from your face so that the phone is not touching your cheekbone.  The microphone in your phone is sensitive enough that this will not impact the volume of your voice to the person on the other end.  If you can get used to this new position, you'll be all set.


Most of us naturally hold a phone up tight to our face but if you practice this simple technique, I think you'll find many more uninterrupted calls in your future!

And on top of what is sugggested by BillJ, you might look into an app TalkLock for the Torch.
