    Whenever I am about to end a call, or the other person on the line hangs up, when I go to press end call, the screen shuts off, and it takes a good 10 seconds for it to come back on, which is then at the "slide to unlock" screen. Does anyone have this same problem/can you fix this?

    If you're in the lock screen when the phone rings, that's where it goes back to after the call.

    The 10 seconds is not normal though - try restoring the phone in iTunes.

    I have a slightly different case. If my iPhone is locked and somebody call me, after the person hangs up my iPhone freezes in the contacts menu and doesn't lock, this takes for up to 10 secs, home button and sleep/wake button does not work, but i can still change bottom tabs, select keypad, favorites etc.

    iphone freezing up

    When I am on the phone with someone and they hang up before I do my iphone freezes and turns black, I have to lock and unlock the phone from the button on the top of the phone. Does anyone else have this problem or does anyone know how to fix it??

    I have the same issue!

    I have done a restore and set it up as a new device twice before I was sent a replacement. Today I set up the new phone as a new device and have the same freezing issue. I am stumped. I guess I am calling Apple again.

    I'm having a similar problem. Are your phones jailbroken?

    My freezing issue is resolved!

    I had the same issue - did a restore as a new device, got a replacement phone only to have the same issue. I found a post on the apple forums about it and one guy mentioned that his issue resolved when he removed the case he was using. he had an older version case on it that covered a part of the front of the phone. I was using an incase stretch case that covers part of the faceplate too. Apparently this interferes with the proximity sensor. I removed the case and the issue is gone.

    I went ahead and upgraded to 4.0 and everything is back to normal and functioning great.

    IPhone freezes

    According to Apple, there is a switch under the top left portion of the screen which is being activated erroneously. The most common cause of this is a sloppy, dirty or otherwise messy screen cover. This explains why, in most cases, replacing the phone doesn't get rid of the problem Try ditching the screen cover first.

    In fact, this problem is not limited to the iPhone... I've had freezes when hanging up with EVERY phone so far.

    Seems to be an issue with the GSM Standard and the way the protocol terminates calls...
