How do I keep my cheekbone off the iPhone?

I use an old iPhone 4. I can't be the only person with this cheekbone issue, hoping there's a stupid simple solution.

Chronic problem: if I have the keypad up while phoning (and I usually need to start calls that way because of having to enter 9 for English, extension numbers etc) my cheekbone will often hit the keypad a few times during the call, creating beeps and sometimes distracting me or my interlocutor.
If the keypad is not up a different problem occurs: my cheekbone hits the speaker button and switches the call to the speaker, which can also be distracting.
I'm not a casual phone chat person – most of these calls are functional calls or chats with clients, often in my second language, so I have to keep my focus and not let myself be distracted.
