    Hi there. I dropped my phone and the screen cracked, and the proximity sensor is broken -- the screen always turns black when I make a call. I was thinking of replacing the screen. Will this likely fix the issue with the proximity sensor, so the phone is usually for calls again?

    Thanks

    Only the repair people can tell...ain't your screen supposed to go black when you put it near your ears when making a call?

    To be more specific: it stays black even if I take my phone away from my head.

    Proximity sensor and screen, 2 different things...so if you replace the screen I don't think it'll fix the proximity sensor *unless the display replacement has a proximity sensor in it*.

    P.S. - Laughed on this "I take my phone away from my head." because I imagined this,
