Issue during call - How to get screen back on???

    Hello. I have no problems with jsut a regular call.

    problem gets to be when taking phone from my ear and or typing numbers in menu on a call. when i initially take the phone from my ear the screen then awakenes and i can use it. then after a very short period it goes black again and i can get it back to awaken and the call is still on and i cant hang up or push additional buttons to address automated menus etc...

    probably user erro but how do i get the phone to awaken while on a call and the screen goes inactive? asleep? whatever.....

    thank you very much. im sure its mee but its driving me nuts....
    thanks in advance.

    When this happens to me i usually stick my finger over the light sensor in the top left for a second and then move it away and it will become active again.

    yes i have tried that and doesnt work. either does running hand over the screen or tapping screen. call jsut goes on with a black screen.

    sorry should have written that.

    Mine was doing this and annoying the heck out of me. If you want a temporary fix to it (until HTC fixes it with an update or something), try this:

    1. Go to the Market and download Keepscreen.
    2. Once it is installed, open it and click on "Applications"
    3. Select Dialer, Dialer Storage, and DM Command service.
    4. These selections will turn green letting you know that you are good to go.

    That's it. It works very well for me. :)
