    do you have a screen protector on? may be blocking the proximity sensor.

    govnah and uber kernal installed? if so that may be causing some flickering...check the prefrences and turn off the update launcher icon

    This happens to me too when my screen gets a bunch of finger prints and/or oily. Give it a good cleaning and if it still happens your proximity sensor is probably bad.

    i love this forum - i just took off the screen protector and it worked perfectly - at least for the first test call. i've had a screen protector on for months with no issue. maybe that's the problem - too old!
    thanks - i'll monitor it.

    I had this problem too. As you discovered, it's the screen protector. I had the same screen protector on four Pres (four in our family), and it only affected my phone. One solution is to not use a screen protector. A better solution is to make a hole in a new screen protector with a hole punch to the right (as you're looking at the screen) of the ear hole (whatever it's called). I did that it works fine now.

    in my excitement i forgot! i just added my gratefulness!

    been testing the phone since then - no problems. i can't believe that was all it was = i was soooo worried, esp because i recently noticed a slight crack in the screen!

    oh, no! I just replaced mine because the screen cracked. I have a screen protector, but have never had an issue. My dad's phone did this though.
