    I know this has probably been asked before but I've tried searching and can't find the answer.

    Yes! It works!!!
    I never noticed this on call. I just now completed a ~10 minute call and this app never let the screen go off.

    i just press the call button to re light the screen, is that too hard for people?

    Yes it's too hard for me. I've hung up a few times. Its confusing because I use the end call key to lock/unlock the phone. Why can't you just tap the screen to wale it up?

    Because it may unlock accidentally pressed against you face.

    I've ended quite a few calls by pressing it on my face at the beginning of a call before it turns itself off, can't image why anyone would want the screen to stay on!

    When making/recieving calls the phone should LOCK but the screen should remain ON. It's not a big ask.

    My LG Dare was smart enough to lock the screen when one put the handset to the face, and unlock it when not at the face....it's a shame my Hero can't behave the same way!

    Yea, my LG Arena had a proximity sensor near the speaker and turns off the screen when close to face or any object. Once the object is out of the way it re lights the screen...:cool:

    Search proximity sensor on the market, locks the phone when near your face, and unlocks when taken away. I like it but don't use it because I think keeping the screen on when in a call kills battery life uneccesarily.

    Unless you have the Hero from Verizon (called HTC Eris), your handset doesn't have the proximity sensor hardware.

    Wrong, this software uses the light sensor and it works on the UK Hero.

    No problem, and technically you weren't wrong - sorry.

    Just tried the proximity sensor from the market and it works on my Telus Hero.

    Really impressed with this app so far, no problems on my Hero. Great use of the light sensor. Also, it's good because it locks the phone straight away so you dont hang up by pressing your cheek against the screen.
