    I know everyone's experienced this before.

    You're done with your phone call, you move the phone away from your face, you're ready to press that big red End Call button, but no matter how hard you try, it just doesn't seem like it wants to end the call for another five or so seconds.

    The sad thing is, the solution has always been there and I'm sure everyone has seen it before and just ignored it.

    Well I tried the "Power button ends call" under Settings > Accessibility, and I must say, I'm very satisfied.

    That thing used to drive me nuts when it just refused to hang up the call and you hear the other person munching on chips!

    There ya have it, a simple solution that many have probably seen, but most likely not used. lol.

    I've even gotten stuck in the mode where when I flip it down to see the screen to push hang up, it goes blank. I sit there repositioning my phone all over until I can finally get the display to show to quickly hit the end button. Thanks for the fix!
    I like having the option to hit the button to dim the screen, like I used to do on the 1.x versions. I'll try this now that the screen dims when the phone is held vertically and see how it goes.

    Haha, I forgot I posted this. Glad it's helping you.

    I did however, discover a problem. Sometimes the screen dims completely and there's no way to wake it up, except to press the power button, which in turn will hang up the call. lol.

    So, if you MUST multitask while on a phone call, this may become equally annoying.
