I hope this hasn't been asked before; if it has and I searched on the wrong keywords, my apologies.
Is it possible to set the Lumia 710 up so that it ends a current call when I press the button on top of the phone to put it into standby mode?
I've been caught a couple of times when leaving voicemail messages by the fact that I press the button, the 'phone plays a "ker-lick" noise and the screen goes black; but when I switch it back on again, the connection's still open and the call is still on-going.
Normally, this isn't an issue, as the call ends when the other party puts their phone down, or the voicemail reaches the end of the available message time; but I recently called someone who's got an honest-to-goodness answerphone on the shelf next to their phone, and it was happy to leave the connection open for well over an hour. As a result, I've just received a bill from my provider costing two-and-a-half times as much as usual - money I can scarce afford as I'm currently "resting" between jobs.
It would be neat if switching the phone off (or, at least, putting the phone on standby) ended the current call...
Solved! Go to Solution.

Unfortunately it's not possible to end a call by pressing the screen lock button. Blanking the screen with that does not end the call and it's not possible to modify the operating system to add this behaviour.
You either need to press the on screen end call button or turn the phone off completely to end a call.
I thought it unlikely that there would be such an option, although it does seem counter-intuitive to have a call on-going on a locked 'phone. But thank you anyway for the answer. I shall just have to be more careful to ensure that I really have ended a call before putting my phone away, as there can't be that many people who are interested in listening to what's going on in my pockets
