    I was curious if there was a way to change the way I answer or disconnect from a phone call. As everyone knows you have to hide and slide the tab for talk/hang up. Is there are way to change this to a button for talk/hang up?

    I think I'm gonna see if theres perhaps a .zip file one could apply from recovery mode to make this possible... Gimme some time to research this, hopefully I get some a good result.

    I'd like to see a way to do this as well. I'm not crazy about having to drag the icon to end a call. At times it won't end a call. I don't understand why Samsung designed the phone this way.

    This would be so nice!! My husbands Evo has a slide downward which is much more convenient than the slide all the way to side, even a switch to that would be an improvement.

    This would be a huge improvement for this phone. It's really bad. I'm even thinking of returning the phone. I would like to find a better way to end a call after you have left the keypad screen. It's difficult to hang this phone up.

    I made a 2nd post, this time on SDX, Dodge moved it (Why Dodge, seriously why.) and now nobody looks at it. I need to get ahold of Shiftr182 or something...

    This is the only thing that would make me change this phone. The PHONE portion is infuriating to use! I'm happy with everything else, and I can even put up with the processor having moments of complete confusion. But the number of inadvertant calls I've made because I can't hang the SOB up makes me crazy. One wrong press and you're out of luck for hanging up a call quickly.

    I've done all I can right now... Id ask any developers you know to see if this can be done.

    Go into the market and search for an app called "Advanced Telephone" its made by "lap1945"
    I think this is what u guys have been looking for :)

    I put "Dialer One" on the phone and even though there are quirks in it its a better overall call handler. The slide to answer is still the only method but for me I want slide to call and hangup functionality.

    I have tried a similar app and the problem with them is that there is a 2-5 second delay before the actual buttons to answer and hangup showup on top of the existing slider buttons. This causes a lot of times to people to hangup and or for me to already miss the call.

    I can't believe that we do not have either a slider or those buttons as options from the os side.

    I use Dialer One and like it a lot. It has an occasional lag but it beats the standard Samsung dialing process by a mile. Dialer 2 has a better looking keypad but there is too much lag with that program.

    Dialer One is the way to go with this phone. It even has 1 touch keypad speed dialing which I use frequently. Unfortunately, Dialer One doesn't eliminate the slide to answer hang up problem most of us seem to dislike strongly.

    Thanks for the tip about Advanced Telephone. I'll check it out.

    I've noticed with the new Froyo port, you can set it up so hitting the power button will end a call.
