Hey all

My wife and I both have captivate running 2.2 however have both noticed that our phones are prone to hanging up in mid call.. I assume this is because of where the end call key is located on the screen and if may get bumped by a cheek... Anyone know of a solution to this somewhat annoying issue?
 
I use widgetlocker ($2) but well worth it. Now when I make or receive a call once the screen goes black and I wake it back up in order to do anything I have to unlock it so no more accidental hang ups or answering from my pocket as I slide the phone out. Plus I can create a custom lock screen to get to apps or even the camera without unlocking the phone.

That's nice but I shouldn't have to add some workaround let alone pay for it. This phone is a joke and Samsung is laughing all the way to the bank.

its true but widgetlocker serves other functions as well not just to prevent the accidental cheek hang up. and the hangup issue isnt just for this phone i was having the same issue on my inspire if the light sensor gets even the slightest amount of light like i moved it away the screen would turn on leading to the cheek hang up.

i was looking around the market and came across a free app called Don't Hang up! i havent had a chance to try it yet
