Whats the best way to end your conversation in your phonecall in english? well, i wonder that when i am talking to an English native speaker on the phone, both of us seem to have finished what we wanted to say, then how do you English speakers usually say for ending this conversation, i think just saying a goodbye is really not that polite, and too abruptly.. so i'd like to hear your advices on this situation.. All the answers are appreciated!

Try to think what you have to do soon to excuse yourself so the other end wouldn't feel too bad when you need to hang up. Then if you can, or want to, express how you felt during the overall conversation. Did you feel happy? enlightened? This way the other end would know if it is ok to call again next time and what to talk about as well. Then you say pre-ending "take care" or "see you again" or "see you next time" then ending words "bye-bye" or "goodbye" or "bye" I usually say bye bye because I feel goodbye is forever.

If you agreed on talking again later you can say: (I'm) Looking forward to talk to you again (/next tuesday). (Good)Bye. If you don't have a schedule, you simply say: See you (/Call you) again! If it's an interview, something that may have been inconvenient, or an unexpected call: Thank you for your time. If you know what your partner ist doing next, you may refer to it: Enjoy your holiday! Bye!

Your question is too simple, it depends on whats being siad in the moments before you want to end the conversation. However, in general I normally say "alright, talk to you later <term of endearment>, cya"
