I know many people have issues with their proximity sensor preventing them from using their screen while on a call. I have had 2 Lumia 920s with the opposite problem: the proximity sensor does not seem to properly prevent accidental touches to the screen.
I have been on calls where the phone hangs up over and over again. I have also had the phone switch to speaker. I have also had the phone hang up and dial another number off the previous calls list.
Has anyone else experienced this on their Lumia 920?

The same issue kept on happening to me. My solution was to press the lock button every time I got onto a call. The proximity sensor does not trigger the screen to turn on while on a call. If you want to end the call, press the lock button again and it takes you right back to the call screen. No need to change positions

I have thoroughly checked the proximity sensor by having my wife and daughter watch the screen as a hold the phone against my head in different ways. The sensor *seems* to work fine in these tests. And yet I have had multiple hang-ups (and I think a speakerphone or dialing another number) on calls. It seems intermittent to me.

Update: Nokia sent me a new Lumia 920, and as much as I love the phone, I decided to sell it. The problem is that on the LUmia 920, the proximity sensor is so far to the right side of the rather large phone that if you don't hold the phone tightly against your head the screen can activate. This won't happen if you use the phone left-handed. Why Nokia built a phone that needs to be held in just te right way is beyond me. My Samsung Focus has no problems (it has the proximity sensor on the left side which seems wiser).
