Proximity sensor issue?
Just got my Optimus Elite -- love it, super fast, feels great, looks great, etc. But I think the proximity sensor is messed up. When I place a call, the screen goes out when I put the phone to my ear, but taking the phone away does not bring the screen back no matter what I try. None of the buttons work, and I have to take the battery out just to get the phone to go back. This is stock without any new apps installed yet. And no, I don't have anything on the front screen either that might interfere with the sensor.
I'm thinking I need to return the phone, but I'm dreading mailing it back and being without a phone for, what, weeks? I haven't found anyone else who's had this problem, so I figured I'd ask the experts to see if it sounds like the proximity sensor's really busted -- and also if anyone has any advice for seamless/speedy exchanges through VM. Thanks, guys.
