    Default Screen automatically locks when a call ends

    Recently I noticed that after I finish a call...the screen on my S3 is automatically locked. I'm connected to my corporate email and have a policy for a strong password. This normally is not an issue as I have my phone set to lock after 29 minutes. But with it locking after each call is a pain. This started happening only a few days ago

    I have two things you can do to prevent it..They may work not sure :P

    Every time I get off a call I have a habit of hitting the home button after ending it. This takes me of course to the home screen to do whatever and the phone doesn't lock.

    Another thing you can try is going to your phone, hitting the menu button > call settings > call answering / ending > then set the power button to end the call instead of tapping it on screen. This will not lock the screen.

    Those are my ideas

    I'm not using the screen lock at the moment and don't have the issue so it must be a setting within your screen lock properties.

    Thanks guys....hitting the home button before the call ends seems to be the work around for now...it's just weird that I don't recall this being an issue until a week ago and no major changes on this end.

    Thanks again for your responses!!

    Old post...but thought I add an update. I installed "On Call End" and it allows you set and action for what your phone does when a call has ended.

    I have it set to got to the home screen and so far so good. Not a complete fix...but a very good workaround.

    Interesting app.
    Does this problem occur with both incoming and outgoing calls, or just incoming? Have you fiddled with the screen proximity sensor settings? I'd have to agree with the previous poster that noted that if it used to work then either a new app or some setting change is messing with the default behaviour.

    This issue you guys are having is confusing me. On my phone the screen returns to whatever state it was in when the call came in. So, if I'm browsing the web or whatever and a call comes in it does not lock the screen after I end the call, I simply go back to what I was doing. If the screen is locked (like in my belt case) and I get a call and answer it after I'm done it locks itself. Normal behaviour.

    That's bizarre, I even tested it on mine before posting and it only locks if the screen was already locked. So, if for testing sake let's say you lay the phone on your desk and open the web browser, and while on a website you call you phone from another phone. When you hang up from the other phone your screen locks rather than going back to the web browser? Test that and let me know. You can do anything, doesn't have to be the web browser, you can be looking in My Files or whatever and it always takes me back to the screen I was at prior.

    dont have to test it bro, it happens all the time, usualy when in browser, someone rings and wether i wait for them to hang up or i hang up, it still goes to lockscreen which is annoying coz i use "smart app lock" on all my browsers, gmail etc so after unlocking, i have to enter my pin again

    "want ripped ya wee fanny?" means (in a threat) "do you want me to run a carpet knife down your face, you little *bleep*" lol us Scots are lovely, we must be the only nation who will call a guy "mate" (friend) before head-butting them on the nose lol

    I'm having the same issue on a Verizon Galaxy S3, ver 4.04. Sometimes it goes back to what you were doing prior, but mostly it just locks. Thanks for the On Call End tip. Have it set to go back to dialer, and it is working so far.
