    Happened to me earlier today and it rejected the call. I pressed sleep, the screen shut off, and then my ringtone started for a second and stopped. Anyone else experienced this?

    I have picked up the home phone to make a call and no dial tone, there was someone calling at the exact time I went to make a call and there they were. The good ole days.

    That's how it's intended to work the lock button will only work normally during a call when you have speakerphone on, the proximity sensor makes putting the phone to sleep manually redundant so pressing it cancels the call instead.

    Sounds like a coincidence in timing basically, which is not very common, but certainly happens (even with landline phones, as someone described earlier).

    This is pressing the lock button before you're alerted to the call
