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 :: 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 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

IPhone :: Safari - Hitting Home Button Automatically Close / End?
I'm just curious, lets say when your surfing safari but all of a sudden you need to check the weather, so you press the home button and then open the weather app. Does hitting the home button automatically close / end a program? Because I've noticed that when I come back to safari the next time it will show a web page exactly where I left off. I just don't want to have several applications open causing the battery to drain and/or to overwork the processor.

BB Bold 9700 :: Deleting Emails Other Than Hitting The BB Button And Two Clicks After That For Each One
Is there a convenient way to delete them other than hitting the BB button and two clicks after that for each one? It would be nice if there were a way to mark several of them for deletion (like you can in Gmail on a computer, for example), or at least set up a shortcut key to delete, but I haven't figured either of those out yet.

BB Storm 9530/9500 :: Mute Button Not Functioning / Button Not Registering Selection?
I have the STORM from Verizon and when I changed the number of rows from the main screen from 2 to 1 it worked fine by clicking the BB button than the BB button a second time than options, however when I do it again the options do not register, if I pull the battery it works the same as above, any ideas on this. The other one is why does the mute button on the top right of the phone next to the lock button do nothing when pressed or held?

BB Curve 8300 :: Side Volume Button And Top Mute Button
I bought this phone from someone and everything works fine but when I try to push the side volume buttons, nothing happens. I can only change it from Normal to Vibrate on the Applications Menu (?). Also, I tried pushing the top mute button and it entered standby mode. How do I change this?

BB Pearl 8110/20/30 :: Mute Button Is Now Enter Button?
So I was trying to send my 8130 into standby using the mute button, but when I hold it down to go into standby it does nothing. I also noticed it is now an additional enter button, whenever I press it, whatever I have selected at the time is accessed as if I pressed the enter button instead of the mute button.What gives? tried resetting the phone by pulling out the battery for about 2 mins, but to no avail. I will try updating the OS but I don't think that'll do anything.

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.

IPhone :: 4S Lost All Sounds - Mute Button Off
My iPhone lost all sound on Wednesday 16 May 2012 and then again this morning Friday 18 May 2012. The Mute Button was Off. I did a little research online and from what I could find out it seems to be an update issue. 5.1.1

Before doing the following I highly recommend you do an iCloud back up first. It takes 5 minutes max and then do this:
>settings>general>reset>reset all settings
This process takes about 10-15 minutes at the most.

I'm really quite irritated now because I've had to do this twice thus far and I'm expecting to have to do it again until this "bug" is worked out. Also my charging seems to have a glitch now as well. It may be an charger issue in and of itself but I really don't think so. Again I think it's the most recent update.

IPhone :: Face / Muting Phone Calls
Got my iPhone 4 a while ago and synced. Made my first phone call only to have the other person not hearing me. Called them back and talked for a while and then they stopped hearing me again. I looked at the phone and figured out that my face was hitting the mute button. This has NEVER happened on any of the 3 other iPhones I've owned. Anyone else having this issue?

IPhone :: Mute Speakers On Calls And Most Apps?
my iphone 4 (ios 5.1) doesn't make a sound on it's speakers when receiving a call or using app.however music plays on speakers as well as some apps like "magic piano". Internet uses speakers correctly, too.vibration works when getting a call, but no sound. turning vibration off doesn't make a difference.testing the ringtone works fine, too, but i don't hear it during a call.when using headphones all apps produce the sound they should and incoming calls play the ringtone, too. changing volume level doesn't make a difference.during a call i can turn on loudspeakers without a problem. mute works as expected, too.but no matter what i do, all incoming calls stay silent and most apps and system sounds like keyboard clicks are muted.i missed numerous calls because of that, so how can i turn the sound back on?

info:iphone 4, ios 4.3.3

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.

BB (RIM) :: Mute Button Very Sensitive - Normal?
I purchased a blackberry curve 8530 on thursday, and have used it for one full day now. The mute button is EXTREMELY sensitive, but only from non-direct touch angles - so basically it goes into mute mode when I do not expect it. This is becoming a massive annoyance.

Is this a normal problem with these phones, or should I try to get a replacement? Will they make me go to RIM to have them send me a refurbished phone for my 1 day old brand new phone?

BB Curve 83xx :: Possible To Put Phone In Standby Other Than Mute Button?
Hey everyone, I got my first BlackBerry a couple months ago and LOVE it! I just got a new skin for it so it doesn't slip well into the holster. That doesn't bother me since I can just keep it in my pocket, however I miss the autostandby function that the case gives me. I know about holding the mute button down for a couple of seconds to put the phone into standby, however with this new skin, I have to push down REALLY hard to hit the button. The convenience keys are. well, more convenient. Is it possible to set one of these to put the phone into standby? Currently I have it set to keylock, but it's just not the same. I would love to see the same functionality of the mute button on one of these buttons instead. Anyone know if this is possible or know of an app that would allow me to make this change?
