How to END a Call?

Last Updated:

    The Droid is a very fun device and I love playing with it. But it is a PHONE first. I've made lots of calls today but I personally, have not ended any of them. They always end with the other person hanging up and my screen going to the home screen. The display will not wake up during a phone call unless I slide the phone open. Has anyone else experienced this? I understand that you dont want your cheek to press any buttons, but there has to be an easier way to wake up the phone.

    Summarize the problem - I want the display to wake up while in a phone call without having to slide out the keyboard

    The Droid doesnt have an End call button?

    It does. But it's a soft key on the touchscreen which I can't get to wake up....

    Pull the phone away from your head and the screen should wake up. The phone has a sensor that puts the display to sleep when it is on your ear. Just give it a couple seconds.

    Yeah thats what motorola said. I guess my screen sensor? must be defective?

    I put the phone on a table. I make a call. The display IMMEDIATELY goes dark, whether its by my face or not. Will not wake up without sliding the keyboard out.

    The display will stay active though if I have the it on speakerphone.

    Unfortunately, it does sound like the sensor is defective (or you found a setting I can't find). When I make a call on the table, the screen stays lit. Once I put my hand over the sensor (same area as the LED notification), the screen goes dim.

    The proximity sensor on my Moment works just like this. Sounds like he may need to return it and get a new one.

    Do you have a screen protector on? It might be triggering the proximity sensor to always stay on. If I make a call the screen only dims when I put my hand over the display or put it against my face. If I pull it away from my face the screen turns on so that I can hit the end call button.

    Thanks for your quick responses!

    I'll keep messing around with it some tonight but I think I'm going back to verizon tomorrow morning to get it straightened out.

    No I do not have a screen protector on.

    Theory - they set up the phone at the store today with the factory plastic screen protector still on it. Do you think that when it initialized everything for the first time that it got a bad reading or something? So that maybe a hard reset without the screen protector might fix it?

    It couldnt hurt to try a hard reset before returning it, but I have my doubts about it correcting the problem. Who know though..

    When trying to return to an active call from the home screen, you try to pull down the green telephone notification but the screen only blacks out so you can't end the call. Has this happen to anyone else?

    If you have rooted your droid there is an app in the marketplace now that changes the camera button to an end call button. Disables the button for camera, and allows you to end a call from any screen without the soft key.

    Search for end call.

    i always found throwing it against a nearby hard object, like my wall shuts off the call really effienctly, however I am having to buy a new phone almost every week now.

    Heh, I guess that app may be useful for those with dysfunctional proximity sensors, however, I just do it the old fashioned way, which is to pull the phone away from my ear and hit the end button.

    By the way, if your proximity sensor really isn't working, IMO, it's worth taking in for a replacement, rather than using some roundabout way to emulate a end call button.

    How to end a call? If you're talking to a guy, tell him that he's a cheap bastage and your girl is better looking than his. If you're talking to a girl, tell her that her sister is way hott and that she's been looking fat lately. :p

    Hope this helps... ;)

    If anything, tapping the power button to "wake" it from sleep may work.

    I've discovered that pressing the camera button halfway helps it wake up after pulling the phone away from my ear.

    Yeah you can alternatively push the on/off button and it flashes the screen back up
