Default Can't quit a call at home screen

I didn't found my problem in the forums, and I'm not sure this is the correct forum to post my problem into. My apologies if I'm wrong.

When I sometimes accidentally call a wrong person by tapping the wrong button, I want to cancel the call before I'm charged for the call.

To do so, I intuitively press the home button on my Wildfire, since the home button quits the application (and so quits the call). At least, that's my reasoning.

But when I do so, the call doesn't end, and I'm unable to go back to the call screen to end the call. As soon as I enter the home screen, the screen locks, like it's in standby. When I press the standby button to view the lock screen, swipe my finger to unlock the lock screen and arrive at the home screen, within a few (1-3) seconds, the screen locks up again.

The only thing I know that helps, is just shutting down the phone. That ends the call, but I know there has to be some other way around.

What can I do to quickly end a call when I'm in the home screen?

Sorry, I'm a bit stressed at the moment because of this, posting this message just after the issue happened, and my English vocabulary/grammar suffers because of it.

Practical information:
- HTC Wildfire
- Android 2.2
- LauncherPro (free version)

Try this app. It's called call confirm and when you tap to call a contact you'll get a confirmation dialog first.

Don't you have a green phone in your notification bar? if you do just drag it down and open the dialler and hit end call.

Angry I have the exact same problem

This problem is re-producible !
I want to take a hammer to smash the phone because of this shit !

Call confirm is not an option because this way it take me forever to call someone !!!!

This should be fixed !!! Any clue how to report this shit ti the producer ?
actually i'll just do the exact thing !

Hi,
Have you got a solution?
I too felt similar problem with Samsung S2. But FOUND A SOLUTION. Please let me know if it works.
When call is on, there will be icon shown in notification area on top left. You can just move your finger from top of screen to bottom. Then you will get notifications along with option to end the call.

Regarding screen getting locked immediately, your phone might have locking time set to very small value. you may change & see.

Hope it helps you

The hardware of the HTC Wildfire isn't exactly 'jaw dropping,' but still great for an 'entry-level' handset for folks on a budget. Specs include a 5 MP camera with geo-tagging & auto-focus, 3.2" inch capacitive that sup... Read More
