Butt Dial*: To unintentionally place a phone call to someone after putting your phone in your [back] pocket. This usually results in dead-air for the person who receives the call or worse - they hear what you are doing or saying.

To avoid butt dialing, be sure you do not put your phone in your pocket while it is lit up. Don't turn the whole phone off, but make sure it is in standby mode by "locking" the phone.

*Pocket Dial is a more polite way to refer to this type of incident.
