    When dialing, receiving calls, and while talking, android goes into an endless loop asking for "double tap to unlock". Hugely annoying, and I can't find any settings that will get rid of this. At other times, the phone works OK. Using android 4.4.2 on a (old) Samsung DUOS.

    Welcome to Android Central! That screen typically shows up for phones that lack a proximity sensor, or phones that allow you to turn off the proximity sensor. The reason for the double-tap is to prevent your face from accidentally pressing onscreen buttons while you have the phone up to your face during a call. Do you know if your phone has a proximity sensor? If it doesn't, I don't think you can turn that feature off. If it does have a proximity sensor, then open the Phone app and look through its settings for an option to turn the screen off during a call.

    Not that I am aware of. I've never installed one.... is there any way such a thing could be included in the software that came with the phone? How would I know? How would I find it?
