Can't end a call!

So I'm on a phone call on my iPhone and I leave the call screen to look something up...a contact, a contract...whatever.
Am I missing something because I cannot find my way back to a screen that gives me the option to end the call!
I either have to say goodbye and hit the power button to return the phone to a black screen...which means inputting my password again to unlock the phone, or I have to wait until the other person hangs up.
So am I missing something?

Same thing happened to me once. No green banner on top. Home button did not work. Side button did not work. I had to turn the phone off to end the call. I assume the other person would eventually hang up, but I was still staring at a totally black screen. I think I was looking something up on the web, but can't remember exactly what I was doing.

No green banner at top of screen?
Yeah, that should be there at the top during a call if you leave the call screen. Or at least you should be able to go back into the Phone app and back to the call screen through that.
