    Anybody know if it's possible to revert phone call behaviour back to like it was in WP7? I HATE that it minimizes calls now and it's troublesome for my father as well, we have found it a nuisance to click on the banner to bring it back up and then have to hit disconnect/hang up/whatever. Especially annoying when one handed.

    I prefer the old Windows Phone 7 way where it didn't hide the call unless you told it to.

    Normally it doesn't..... If you answer the call and go and press the Start button. It'll bring you out of the phone call screen. Even if you close the screen, once you press it back on it should go back to the phone call screen. So I'm not sure how you got out of it without touching anything.

    It does for me on my Lumia 920 and on my fathers Lumia 520. I answer the call put it up to my ear and when I am done I look at the screen and the call is minimized to a bar at the top.

    No, I am not hitting the Windows button. I just did a test with all my fingers on the edge of the phone and just held it up to my ear with the speaker out where I can see and it auto minimized it.

    We both have ATT, I have a Lumia 920, my father has a Lumia 520 (ATT GoPhone whatever one that is).

    We both have the latest updates from ATT on 8.1. I am running 8.10.12393.890

    Correct, I have both of those phones and this issue doesn't happen. It only turns into the Banner Bar when you leave the call screen.

    This is not normal behavior based on any change in software. I have a Trophy, 822, 928 and an Icon and none of them put the call screen on the banner unless I hit the Windows button to multi-task.

    Now, there may be a glitch in your phones, but the software is not designed to go to the banner when you answer a call.

    I'm having the same problem on Lumia 920. It doesn't happen always and I haven't figured out yet what triggers it. So far I noticed that it can happen when answering and when dialing. When I move the phone away to end call the phone is displaying the same screen as just before I dialed or answered. This means that I find my self in contact display when dialing or in whatever I was doing before answering. In both cases there's a banner of active call and I have to tap it to get back to dialing screen and end call if the other arty hasn't hang up already.

    I also got a new Lumia 820 and it does the exact same thing. Every call is minimized to the banner. Hate it.

    Try not to press the whole screen up against the side of your face. That is contacting the capacitive buttons.

    My Lumia 930 just started doing the same thing... Any ideas what could cause this? I did factory reset but without any difference...
