IPhone :: During Call Face Hitting Mute End Contacts Buttons
I had the iPhone 3G for two years. After dialing a call, one brings the phone to one's ear, the screen goes black BEFORE contact with one's face, and the call proceeds. I never had a problem with this in two years - not even a single time.
The iPhone 4 I got early yesterday is consistently allowing my face to mute calls, hang up on calls, hold calls, etc. before the screen goes black. Of course I don't realize this because my cheek does it and I'm not looking at the phone, so it leads to repetitive dialing.
Anyone else having this problem? Any fixes? I may just have a dud and will have to return it.

IPhone :: Face / Hitting Mute Button During Calls
I did a search on this topic, but I haven't found my problem.I read about a proximity sensor so the screen turns off during calls or close to your face. So far I haven't noticed the screen go off at all. Is there something in settings I need to activate? Where is the sensor on the phone? I have a case but I won't think it's covering anything?It's VERY annoying, so any advice would help out.

IPhone :: Face Mute - People Can't Hear - Can't Do Anything Other Than Hang Up And Cal Back
This is an intermittent thing but I have had occasions where part way through a call I can hear the person on the other end of the line but they can't hear me! When I take the phone away from my ear there is still a blank screen and I can't do anything other than hang up and cal them back. It doesn't happen all the time, and not at the start of the call. I don't recall it having happened when on speaker (I don't use the headphones - weird shaped ears!)
I have read about problems with cases (I have the jam jacket) so I was wondering if it could be a "face-mute" followed by the screen going to sleep

BB Storm2 9550/9520 :: Hitting Buttons On Screen During Calls
I will be making a call and hitting mute, flash, whatever! Even if the dial pad is up I somehow inexplicably hit mute or flash or whatever. It is DRIVING ME NUTS! I had TalkLock on my Storm 1 and it was alright.
I heard StormLock is better but I can't find it in App World. TalkLock is there but I'm not sure if it will work with Storm 2.

Just got my new VX8300 awesome phone.Downloaded the BitPim, and transferred over 25 MP3's to the phone through a BT connection. However, do I have to re-send songs that I want as ringtones in a different format... or is there a way to set the MP3's on the phone as ringtones? Also, what is the function of the three buttons on the face of the phone? I'll hold down PLay/ Pause and PLayer Error occurs on the screen?

IPhone :: Face Time And Muting Pops Up During Call
Just curious if anyone else was experiencing this problem, when ever I am taking on the phone, it keeps opening up speaker and face time or muting my call, it feels like the sensor is over sensitive, if I barely move it from my face it is opening up the keypad screen. I can't hold a decent conversation without this happening constantly during my calls, should I return it or is this something I am going to have to deal with? I love the phone, but this is starting to bug me, not sure if something is faulty or what.

IPhone :: During Call Side Of Face Keeps Initiating Touch Pad
I'm a new I Phone user, that is getting increasingly off when during the call the side of my face or my ear keeps causing the phone to switch from speaker phone to key pad, causing the calls to be interupted with bleeps from the key pad or the sound dropping in and out of speaker phone etc.How do I prevent this from happening? Is there a way to have a call without the contact between the screen and my face messing up the conversation??

BB Torch 9800 :: Touchscreen Buttons Hold / Mute Causing Error During Phone Calls
I just got the BB Torch 9800. It's my first touchscreen phone, so I'm sorry if this has been discussed before.While I'm on a phone call, the following buttons automatically appear on the touchscreen: Mute, Hold, Speaker Phone, and Add Recipient. I have yet to complete a phone conversation without hitting one of these buttons with my cheek. I cannot for the life of me find a way in Options to stop these buttons from appearing during phone calls.I am actually considering returning the phone over this.

IPhone :: Phone App Freezes / Cannot End Call / Mute
This has happened since I updated to OS4 but am noticing it now consistently. If I make a phone call at any point, leave the phone app to do anything else, then come back, the phone app will be completely frozen until I do a hard reset.
I just got done testing it with a friend, me on my 3G (now running 4.0.1) and him on his 4 (same firmware for him). I could not end the call, switch my bluetooth off, or do anything inside the phone app.
Does anyone know how to fix this besides resetting my phone after every single call?!?

IPhone :: Hang Up On Every Call / Put People On Mute And Start Random Calls
This sensor issue is a total cluster. I purchased 70 iPhone 4's for every sales person in my company and the phones basically don't work. They hang up on every call put people on mute and start random calls. We need some sort of announcement out of apple this is nuts. It's not as simple as going back as the sim chard changed, what am i supposed to do have every employee go into an att store and get a new sim card to go back to their old phones?? What a mess! nice job on this one.

Xperia Pro/Neo/V/L :: BUG: Cancel Call With Face?
There is a bug in firmware which causes phone calls to be cancel by accidentally touching the screen with face. The bug is present since 2.3.4 and is still present in newest.The problem is Neo V tries to be smart and turn the screen on when the phone is placed horizontally. Unfortunately it sometime fails. So the actual problem is with identification of the phone orientation, which points to accelerometer. On the other hand the idea of turning the screen on when detected orientation is horizontally seems to have completely no sense. Reliable and robust solution would be to stick with proximity sensor data only and not to take orientation into account when deciding whether or not to turn the screen on.

Motorola Atrix 2 :: Mute When First Receiving A Call?
Had my Atrix 2 for a week and some times when I answer the phone no one is there.They can hear me perfectly well but my phone is dead quiet. Yes I've checked to make sure I haven't accidently hit the mute when answering. There is just no sound coming from the phone. Only a battery pull while powered on will restore the speaker function.Doesn't happen all the time, just enought to be annoying. Had taken back a SGS2 for this phone so I am stuck on this model and frankly I like it way better.AT&T didn't have any answers other than just hard reset it.
