    I haven't been on in a while, but i have been reading to see if there was another thread for this. So I've had my phone since July 11th and it has always done this but it is now starting to bug the hell out of me. When i have a phone call and talk for 2-5 minutes or longer then hang up, the phone locks and goes to sleep mode, but the weird thing is it doesn't always do this. Has anyone else experienced this?? If so is there a way to fix this? Your input as always is much appreciated.

    If you make the call when you hang up the phone will take you back to home screen. If you receive the call and hang up it will go to sleep. I don't know why it does it but it can't be disabled.

    So just got off the phone, the person called me and we talked for only 10 minutes or so but when i hung up it went to the lock screen and not to sleep. This is what I'm talking about, my problem seems to be inconsistent.

    The behavior depends on a lot of factors:

    - Whether the iPhone was locked when you received the call

    - Whether you unlock a locked phone in the middle of a call, or vice versa,

    - How you answer (via Slide To Answer, hitting Accept, or using your headset), and

    - Whether your conversation is long enough to trip the "time until lock" timer, and you haven't been doing any other activity with the phone.

    Generally it seems like the iPhone will try to preserve its state before the call came in, unless either the timeout happens or you fiddle with the phone mid-call.
