    Hi all. My first post since I got my wife's hand-me-down pre (org sprint) a month ago. I have continuing problems with my cheek activating the top bar menus during a call. Sometimes it puts people on hold or brings up the contacts app, or various other inconveniences. I'm running 1.4.5, have preware, uberkernal (I will need a new battery if I run at 800-1000MHz!), advanced configuration launcher, and a couple of other minor patches (battery % monitor, etc). Is there a way to fix my issue with the top bar or disable the top bar completely during a call?
    Thanks in advance.

    the proximity sensor should be turning the screen off any time your phone is up against your face. Start with some background. IS there a screen cover installed? have you got a bunch of patches and such?

    Gotta figure out why the proximity sensor isn't turning off the screen (hardware or software issue).

    Open Device Info and run Interactive Tests - one of these will test the proximity sensor.

    I ran the interactive tests. The one testing the prox sensor did not work. ie - holding hand to screen did not cause phone to vibrate.

    Any ideas on how to get the prox sensor back online?

    Thanks
