    How many of you ARE NOT suffering from "ghost taps"? Do you put your 1520 in your front pocket? Do you wear a case?

    Have not experience it on my missus' 1520. She didn't put it in a case but only has a jelly backcover with a decent screen protector.

    I had it... Straightened my phone and stopped carrying it in a front pants pocket and it has not returned.

    So do you carry it in your hand all the time?

    I never had a touch issue and have been on a 1520 since release. I've always wondered what the fuss was about.

    I'm about 7 hours away from completing my first week of 1520 ownership.

    A few times when I've gone to scroll, it's triggered a tap; but I've learned that if I use the full "pad" of my finger, it scrolls without issue. I had developed a habit of quickly and lightly using the very tip of my finger on my ATIV S, and that seems to be the cause of my unintentional taps with the 1520.

    Not sure if it helps, but I have glance screen off, and extra sensitive touch for gloves off.

    No case, no screen protector, and I'm being super ultra paranoid with treating the phone like it's the most fragile device that I've ever handled. Thus far, I've taken advantage of cooler than average temperatures this week to wear my leather jacket and keep the phone in the inner chest pocket when I'm out and about.

    I ordered the horizontal holster from the wpcentral store and will have it tomorrow. Hopefully it will work well to clip on the back of my shorts during the summer and be concealed by the overhang of t-shirts.

    Glance screen on or off shouldn't make any difference. It caused unlock screen issues on 8.0 about a year ago but those are long gone. Turn it on and enjoy that feature of the phone :).

    I'm in Florida so the glove feature is useless to me.

    Double tap to wake?

    In most cases it's sensitivity issues. Applied screen protector if you can't stand it

    Breast pocket in a coat or jacket, cargo pocket on casual pants or shorts, I have a pouch I can carry it in (without a case) and a belt holster.

    Could anybody recommend a pouch or case that'll prevent flexing in the front pocket?

    Ghost taps stopped for me after a fairly early firmware update.

    I don't use cases or screen protectors and carry my phone in my front pocket. I don't do anything special to take care of the phone and don't do any funny business of bending/not bending.

    My phone is used and abused and it works just fine for me.

    Is there a way to zip up the fit bag pouch to prevent the Lumia from sliding out? Do you think the pouch would cushion impact in case of a drop?

    During the first week I had it, the phone went crazy after being carried in my front pocket and bending over or squatting down. The phone was flexing and bending slightly. I gently bent it back and then...

    I bought a 2 piece hard clamshell case with rubber over that. Like the Otterbox Defender cases but cheaper. I have had many months of no more trouble. The cases are on ebay for about 5-7 USD. I still carry the phone in my front pants pocket of Docker style pants.

    Try this combo... BodyGuardz UltraTough Clear Full Body for Nokia Lumia 1520 - Windows Phone Protective Films - Windows Central Shop For a naked look + better grip and some scratch resistance...

    And

    Krusell Tumba Mobile Case 5XL for Nokia Lumia 1320, Lumia 1520 - Windows Phone Pocket Pouches - Windows Central Shop For padded carry options. You need the BodyGuardz as the 1520 won't fit the pouch with a case on.

    It's not faux. It is buttery soft top grain leather, nicely tanned. Feels marvelous to the touch and appears quality constructed. I have the brown and am very pleased. The lining is soft and lint free...

    Reading through this forum has made me itch for a 1520 again... I have been keeping away due to reading a lot about how this is a big issue.
    I kept my 1320 in my front pocket without issues...

    I've had two 1520s replaced, am on my third - had the device since launch in 2013 - and o think its a beast! The best WP device, all round, by far. That said its a shame this touch issue had been so prevalent. Other devices seem to have varying issues also... The qc needs to be stepped up a gear. And it would be good if a customer service model like apples could be put in place; I'd love to walk into a store and walk out with a replacement. But then there's no store in the UK and all over got is the ineptitude of the geek squad and the cpw.
