    same as with HTC desire, go to settings, accessibility, check power button ends call and you can now instantly end call by pressing the power button instead of waiting for the screen to light up then pressing end call

    yeah, noticed that with 2.2 and swapped mine to that immediately, never looked for it in 2.1

    nice touch - I'm all about a physical send/end button and was a little confused about how to control the X if it ever locked up during a call

    glad to help, i remember turning it on after upgrade but then forgot to test it, now i can really get my point across during those heated arguments instead of "OK BYE!", 3 second pause while phone goes away from face, lights up and i finally press end call...

    If I do this, will the 'red phone' still close a call too?

    I know the few second pause was a little awkward, not anymore!

    I did that last night, as well. I thought I was turning off the screen when I pressed the power button. Ended up ending my call, lol. Was like, 'WTH', until I realized that the power button was changed to end call XD
