Things get pretty awkward when your smartphone acts smarter than it really is, and dials up calls randomly while in your pocket, or even when you touch it accidentally. Well, it has happened with all of us, and we all have been in that place once a while. By default smartphone manufacturers don’t really add a functionality to stop this, and thanks to the jailbreak community for iOS, we now have tweak that lets you avoid accidental calls on iPhone. The tweak that goes by the name AskToCall demands a confirmation click before making calls. That’s right. No more accidental calls, and no more feeling awkward about it. So here’s how to get this amazing tweak on your iPhone instantly.
