Don't hit the button when making a phone call. Problem solved.

IOW, what exactly is the problem that you need to solve?

During phone call top left is time. Pressing time button activates world clock. Difficult because I just want to see keypad during phone call

Open phone application
Choose menu (bottom right 3 dots or top right, or menu button), then choose Settings... Then enable DTMF pad by default.

screen lock when speaking on phone?

I understand your angry birds example
but angry birds does not interrupt regular function of phone

phones were originally made for phone calls

gheistCommented:
It is a sensor... Like low power IR LED coupled with photodiode.... How do you think you can place ear next to touchscreen without all buttons being pressed?
