After tracing the call, Officer Burroughs tells Jill the calls are coming from inside the house. When Jill drops the phone, you can see the picture of the wallpaper and 'Handset 2' on the screen with Burroughs still talking in the close shot of the phone. This would not appear if the phone was still on the line.

Miscellaneous 

About mid-way through the picture, Jill calls her friend at the bonfire, but the static on the cellphone is nothing like the sounds one would expect from a real cell phone, when reception is poor. Also, the intercept she receives in subsequent attempts to call her friend, includes, initially, chimes initiated by the old Bell system decades ago for land line phones. Cell phone companies don't use those chimes, nor do they use the wording used in this movie. The recording wouldn't say: "I'm sorry, the person you're trying to reach is out of range," not since the nineties anyway.

Revealing mistakes 

In the scene where Jill is in the Guest House and answers the phone, when she hangs it up we get a look at the screen on it. You can clearly see that the battery is almost empty, but she just picked it up off the charging station a minute ago.
