If you are talking to someone on the phone or making a call and you push the button on the side of the iPhone that is called the lock or power button, the call will be cut off immediately. This button is also known as the “sleep button.” Calls can be terminated on an iPhone by using the volume buttons in the same way. While this is generally a proper function, it can be not very pleasant if it happens during an important phone call, which is why some people don’t like it.
