Hello there, do you know if the dialer pops up more frequently on some apps than others? Do you know if this still happens when your device is in safe mode?

This was happening to me only when my phone was in my pocket with the screen off.

I would hear it start dialing, pull it out and find the dialing pad was up with this "emergency dialing" feature happening.

 

But I found a setting called "accidental touch protection" that you can just search in settings.

It protects the phone from accidental touches when in dark places like pockets.


Haven't had an issue once since I turned that on.

Don't know if that's the issue you are describing or not.

 

Sorry, can't help you if this is happening randomly while you are using your phone.
That's never happened on my Note 10+.

I first noticed it when playing brick breaker quest..so initially thought it had something to do with that..but then realized it happens whenever it wants no matter what I am using..not sure how to check in safe mode

Safe mode would help us narrow down if there is a third-party app causing this. To enter safe mode:

  • Press and hold the Power button until the Power off menu appears then release.
  • Touch and hold Power off until the Safe mode prompt appears then release.
  • To confirm, tap Safe mode.
  • The process may take up to 30 seconds to complete.
