when you're on a call - does your proximity sensor work? (the sensor next to the 'sprint' logo on the top of the phone) make a call and put your hand next to that... and see if your screen turns off.

maybe she's holding the phone weird that the sensor isn't being covered? or maybe you have a faulty sensor... i dunno... weird shaped head? i kid...

Re: on phone keep hitting things with face

Honestly, I think it's just the way the phone is held because I do the same thing and my prox sensor is fine. If I hold it on my right ear, it doesn't do it, but it does on my left ear. The sensor is just positioned a little strange, but what can you expect with Sprint putting their fat logo right in the middle?

Re: on phone keep hitting things with face

grab this app,

http://www.androlib.com/android.appl...test-qxpE.aspx

you can test your proximity sensor out.


Unfortunately, for the prox sensor there is only 0 and 1, but it will at least give you an idea if the sensor is working or not.

Re: on phone keep hitting things with face

I'm pretty sure the proximity sensor works in conjunction with the accelerometer, so it only works when the phone is orientated a certain way. in winmo there are reg entries for this.

Re: on phone keep hitting things with face

From Android Market
Quote:
PROXIMITY SENSOR


HTC Hero only:

Acts as a proximity sensor using the built in light sensor during phone calls.
I don't think we have a light sensor on the moment that faces towards your face. We do have a proximity sensor though.

There is also an app called shake awake in the market. you can shake the phone to wake it up during a call. however, I never seemed to get it to work right, and it was very sensitive on the Moment
