    With the JB update, my RAZR MAXX is returning to the old (really old -- I think my OG Droid did it) behavior of going into the Call Log at the end of a call, rather than going back to where it was before the call.

    I hate this. I particularly hate it when I'm in Vehicle Mode, because I want my phone to go back to the Vehicle Mode screen without making me reach up and touch something on the phone.

    I got an app called "On Call End" which lets you specify where to go at the end of the call. I can set it to go the home screen when I'm done with a call (which is better than the call log), but there's no option to go back to the Vehicle Mode screen when you happen to be IN vehicle mode. Smart Actions are not smart enough to deal with this.

    Does anyone know of an app (or a setting I'm missing) that just makes it go back to where it was once you end a call?

    WIll give it a shot. Have heard many good things about Tasker. If it can solve this particular issue for me, it's worth trying it out.

    Grey1001 -- I appreciate the input, but as I stated in the OP, I am already using the On Call End app to go to the home screen, but I can't send it back to the Vehicle Mode screen when I'm in vehicle mode. The home screen does not help when I'm driving.

    Ssith -- Holy crap. Tasker does WAY more than I need it to do. Sort of nuclear bomb when I need a fly swatter. Now, to figure out how to make it swat flies...

    I've trying to wrap my head around this issue using Tasker. I can make Tasker take me back to the home screen (just like On call end), but to go back to the previous screen (or app), you have to be able to catch the current phone state and tell Tasker to return to that state. I'm afraid I don't have enough experience with Tasker to make it happen and I'm not sure if Tasker can even implement this Task, but if there if is anyone out there with the knowledge, and dislikes the current functionality that Moto has implemented, I would really love to hear from you...

    i don't either, i just started using it when it went on sale. i've been perusing the forum on it here, and i'm betting someone over there can answer those questions FAR more accurately than i would be able to.

    even if it doesn't solve this particular problem, i'm betting you can make it solve other things you want your phone to do. i personally have it set up to block any number that doesn't show up on my contact list, sending them straight to voicemail (that way if it's a real person, they can leave a message). i made it auto-shut off Pandora when i turn off my bluetooth headphones, too.


    and this:
    is a VERY accurate way to describe tasker. it's just surreal what you can make it do.

    zoxxo- I can't make it do anything quite so advanced as "go back to what I was doing" on call end, but I have managed:

    Task One:

    Phone Idle + Vehicle Mode = Car Mode On

    Task Two:

    Phone Idle + Not Vehicle Mode = Go Home

    This works well enough for me (as the not going back to the vehicle mode home screen is what was really annoying me).

    Hey Adara, that sounds awesome! I'll take a look at that tonight when I get home! Thanks for getting this started!
