    When I am making a phone call, I commonly find myself accidentally hitting the end call button with my cheek (the phone doesn't start off locked, I have to make sure to lock it then put it up next to my ear)

    Anyone else having similar problems? Hah don't really know if its just me or somehow worse than with my old Samsung focus =/


    Thanks for the help/input!!

    either you have a habit such that you put your phone in a position that made the proximity sensor useless, or its not working properly.
    a bad way to fix it is to cover that part with screen protector, your screen will remain black once you pick up the phone XD

    Happens to me all the time. But only when my phone is on my right ear. Seems like the proximity sensor does not kick in and 99% of the times, somewhere during a convo, the call will end.

    It the phone is on my left ear however, it's fine. lol.

    I am also having a lot of trouble with this. Have any true fixes been found? I will start using the phone with my left ear and see if that will help :P It is very annoying.
