    I really want a way to disable the soft End Call button that pops up in call. If there is an app or widget that some one knows of that can help me,can you please let me know? I'm sick of my face ending calls in the middle of a conversation. Apparently, my cheeks hit it at just the right place to hang up on everyone. Any ideas / help?

    Sounds like your proximity sensor isn't working properly. If the phone is anywhere near close to your face, the screen shuts down and shuts off when it's working right. In fact, on mine, I have to wait 1 or 2 seconds after I remove the phone from my ear before the screen comes back on.

    Would a case interfere with that at all? Where is the sensor? Same area as the light sensor?

    The OP will have to use the Auto Backlight Adjustment option (under settings) to use the "Proximity Sensor" app.

    Just grow a beard. That should stop the hang-ups.

    It works for me anyway. :)

    I don't know how well I'll do on growing the beard with my lack of Y chromosomes and all...

    But thanks for the advice everyone! I'll try out the app and see how it works with my next call...

    Some people have had problems with the proximity sensor with the factory plastic still on the screen. If yours is still on then remove it and see if that fixes your problem.
