    Default Screen lock while in call

    During a regular phone call, when the iphone is near your face, the screen dims/turns off and the keypad is disabled so you can't accidentially press buttons with your face.

    I noticed that my iphone stopped behaving like this some time ago. Currently at 1.1.4, unlocked, activated and jail broken with zIPhone 3.0.

    Any one else experiance this problem? Any troubleshooting tips?

    Thanks.

    Test it by placing your finger over the speaker (the one you listen to when you hold your phone to your ear), the proximity sensor is in there. I believe it uses infrared so if you have a camera with nightshot you will be able to see it light up when in a call.

    You might try to clean the opening, chances are dust etc. are blocking it.

    Thanks I'll try the camera trick.. Last light I was playing around with it and I noticed that after restoring the phone a few times, the keypad does lock when the proxy sensor is engaged, but the display does not dim. Meaning I can't press anything on the keypad when it's near my face, but the screen doesn't turn off..

    Then it might be a software issue, why don't you try restoring and maybe use iliberty this time.
