This is a common problem, it has to do with the keypad flex. either the connector on the top part of your phone is unpluged or your flex is damaged. Open the top of the phone where the screen is at (4 torx screws) genlty remove the cover. you will see two connectors, one that goes to the camera, the other is the one you want. genlty pry it off upwards, I would also clean it with some IPA (rubbing alcohol) and a brush, re-connect it pushing down firmly, you will fill it when it connects. if it doesnt work, you can purchase a new flex, if you need repair help, let me know I can try to repair

If i want to reject some call. thn how could it b possible


Without a specific make and model from you, I dont know about your phone specifically, but most cellphones,if you press the End Call button while the phone is ringing, it will reject the call.

Most cellphones send the caller to voicemail when the call is rejected. Some simply cut the caller off.

I am almost certain that this will work, I have yet to see a cellphone that doesn't.

Make sure you have Any Key Answer turned OFF in your Call Menu...

Some phones let you choose which activity answers incoming calls. Most options are Answer Key to answer, Any Key To answer, or Flip Open to answer. Choose the Answer key Only to pick up calls.

Then, when you press the End Call button, your caller will be rejected....
Good Luck!!

Tip

Trouble viewing my screen


Every time I flip open my phone to use it or answer a call the screen stays black just like it does not realize that I flipped it open. In order to use my phone I have to push the buttons near the top of the phone by the menu button repeatedly to get the phone to realize that it has been flipped open, also my charger port is acting funny too I plug in my cable to charge it and it does not realize that a cable has been plugged in. I have to literally bend the cable around different ways for the phone to realize that it is plugged in to the charger... Please help!!!!!!!
