Sorry if this has been discussed before, but when I first got my phone, the screen would automatically turn back on if I moved the phone while in a call. I really liked this because it made it easy to use the keypad or end a call. It stopped doing that. Now I have to hit the button on top of the phone to turn the screen back on.
Is there a setting for this? Was it supposed to turn the screen back on if I moved the phone?
I just asked this myself in the other phone thread. I read in another forum that it's a bug related to the "in pocket detection" setting. They said that if you turn that off then power down the phone, then the proximity sensor will work during calls. I haven't tested it yet, but I plan on it later. I always turn my phone off before putting it in my pocket anyway....I just turned it on because I didn't know there was a downside.
I had the same problem. I was talking and could not be heard as my face muted the phone. I noticed that the proximity sensor was not responding. I took it to the Sprint store in Florida to see if there was an issue with this. They were not aware of any other people having this issue. The only way to fix it was with a hard reset. Sounds like a software glitch that hopefully will be addressed in the next update along with the charge indicator issues.

I'm just curious...do any of you that are having problems have a screen protector on your phone? I just put a screen protector on yesterday & that's when I started noticing problems with the proximity sensor. It's very possible I've been having problems & didn't notice until now but it could be a common factor too.
Wanted to bump this thread a bit. I just got my Photon a week ago and noticed this problem from the get go. I have 'cheek' dialed a number of times in the last few days. Also notice that once the screen auto locks while on a call, I have to turn the screen back on to end the call. My EVO's screen would turn off and on automatically.
So far the update has fixed my issue. I would like more time to try it out before knowing 100%. I only had the issue after using bluetooth in my car. A simple reboot always fixed it, but that is a PIA to do everytime I get out of the car.
My update continues to fail. Downloads, reboots, I get the loading screen, then it just boots back up and says "The update has failed." I have tried 7 times so far. Even removed launcher pro and home switcher just to be on the safe side. Anyone else having a problem installing the update?
Sprint and Motorola have teamed up to bring us the Motorola Photon 4G, the carrier's first international handset with Android. It's a 4.3 inch powerhouse with its dual-core Tegra 2 processor, 1GB of RAM, 16GB of internal storage and more.
