[macvoiceover] Re: hanging up from a call after leaving a voicemail

oh, hanging up is hard to do, that's the making of a good song title.

What I have noticed since I have had my iPhone (yes folks, I came full
circle and got one) is that every once in a while, hanging up is hard to
do.  I make the same two finger double tap and sometimes albeit  rarely
the phone doesn't hang up.  I don't think it is just a voice mail issue.

Hmmm. Well, it sounds like the best thing for me to do is to make some
practice calls today, and see what happens.

I have a similar issue hang up is the same whether it is from voice
mail or not.  You do have to be precice though.

Hi Patrick,

Well, it very well could be user error, given my newness to the phone,
but I don't think so.  Yes, I did hold the phone flat.  And yes, I
have been able to stop and start a song in the Ipod.  And I've been
able to hang up from other calls.  I really think that this is a weird
bug, related only to being sent to someone's Voicemail.  I think the
problem may have something to do with the fact that when leaving a
voicemail, the hang up isn't mutual.  I know that sounds weird, but
it's the only thing I can think of that would be different.  I'm going
to call my husband tomorrow and try this again.

Thanks, and let me know if you come up with anything I haven't thought
of.
Take care,
Donna

Hello Donna and all:
Hmm, feeling rather sheepish ... this should work. Let me ask a
question if I may ... just for yucks and giggles.

When you pull the phone away from your ear are you holding it flat ...
parallel to the ground or if it were flat on a table when doing the
two finger tap? Do not laugh at me or think that this is more
complicated than it ought to be. I am just confounded (and curious)
what the deal is. I know it is not user error.

Just wanted to toss that out because hanging up should not make you
crazy ... I am gonna do this one more time.

Oh, just as a point of reference ... have you been able to stop and
start a song in itunes? the same motion that hangs up the phone stops
a song playing in itunes. and, if the phone rings can you answer the
call? again, same gesture.

Good luck and if this persists we may have to call you ... mysteries
like this have us climbing the walls (wink).

Good luck and take care

Hi Patrick,

No worries, it's not going back to the store.  It was just such a
strange thing, because nothing I did seemed to work.  I did try all
the things you suggested, but couldn't hang up.  And I couldn't hear
any VO noises, no voice, no clicks, no nothing.  Well, I was calling
my husband at work, so I'm sure I'll have ample opportunities to
practice. *grin*
Best,
Donna

Hello Donna and all:

Public service announcement ... do not take out the battery. In fact,
I believe it has to be done by the manufacturer ... though do not hold
me to that one (smile).

A few ideas ... believe it or not it makes a difference sometimes if
you hold the phone away from you when you are done. Double tapping the
phone with two fingers ought to hang it up. Or, holding the phone away
from your face should cause the Iphone to speak through the loud
speaker. If you place your finger near the bottom of the screen you
should hear an option. Flick to the right until you hear the end
button. Just a quicker way to track it down if you are in a hurry
(smile). I would start with the two finger tap though. It does work
though you might have to practice a tad. I did (smile).

Good luck and if this does not work you have my permission to write
back and threaten to take it back to the store ... I will do it for
you (wink). Attempting to assist in avoiding the anxiety (smile).

Take care.

Hi all,

I am finding that after one is transferred to a voicemail, it is
literally impossible  to end the call once you've left your message.
The end call button simply isn't spoken.  Has anyone found a work-
around?  Also, in the absence of a work-around, how do you take the
battery out.  That would at least end the call.
Best,
Donna

Take good care and I wish you enough.
