    Unhappy How to get rid of auto dialing feature?

    Hey guys,

    I got a new Galaxy S5 (first Galaxy S anything!) a few weeks ago and I love it. Unfortunately, however, I discovered a very annoying feature just now. While messaging my friend on the Android system messager, I was talking to another friend on Viber. So, since I don't have a bluetooth or headset, I would periodically bring the phone down from my ear and respond to the message. The problem is, if I was still on the message screen and brought the phone back up to my ear to continue talking on Viber, the phone auto dials my friend on the messaging screen. So I accidentally dialed the friend I was messaging several times before I realized what was going on.

    Is there any way I can disable this awful feature??

    Yes, turn OFF Air View and Gestures.

    I did for the same reason.

    Thanks, my old Android phone had none of these features, so I didn't even know where to look for it to disable it!

    Old posting, but this also applies: it appears DIRECT CALL needs to be turned off.

    How do I get rid of direct call of favorites? It does not seem to be an option in call settings and I have all hand motion detection, etc. turned off.
