Nexus One: Use the Power Button to End Calls

Posted May 24, 2010 by Rob Rogers in Android

If you hate using the touch screen to end calls, Froyo (Android 2.2) allows you to use the Power Button (the button on the top of the phone for powering on/off the phone and locking the screen) to end a call. It’s nice to have a physical button to hang up when you’re done.

1. Go to the Home screen.

2. Select the Menu key.

3. Select Settings.

4. Select Accessibility.

5. Check the Power button ends call checkbox.

    Yeah, hopefully someday for other android users…

    The bad thing about this option is that if you have the call on speaker phone and the screen goes dark (power saving), hitting the power button to light up the screen it hangs up. (TMobile G2X w/Google)
