One is how to end a call. I know I need to press the red End Call icon. But when I am talking on the phone the screen goes black. So first I have to
1)turn the phone (screen) back on using the side mechanical button,
2)then I have to look at the phone and press the End Call icon.
This seems complicated to me? Is this really what I have to do to simply hang up the phone? Are Iphones like this?

The other issue is having to unlock my phone in order to make a phone call. When I unlock my phone I get routed to whereever I was before I last closed the phone. So I first have to press the homepage button, go to the homepage and then press the green Phone icon, and then press the keypad icon. So let me get this straight (LOL), to make a phone call I must:

1)press the side mechanical button on
2)unlock the screen
3)press the mechanical home button
4)press the green Phone icon
5)press the keypad icon (or select contact)
6)FINALLY, make the call!

are iphones like this? wow, or am I missing something huge? I just can't believe it takes so many steps....
The screen goes black so you don't end up hitting buttons while it's up to your ear. When you want to end a call just take the phone away from your ear and the screen should light up and allow you to end the call.
You can make a phone call by swiping upwards on the phone icon on the lock screen and that will open the dial screen.
