    I've noticed that my proximity sensor does not work all time. I know this because when I'm on the phone I usually walk around the house and when I pass a mirror I can se the screen is on. or sometimes at night I can see the light from the screen on while I'm on a call. Is there any way to fix this without exchanging it?

    what steps have you done to troubleshoot?

    remove the battery?

    install any apps prior this happening?

    clean off the sensor area?

    phone in a case?

    factory reset?

    Its only 3 weeks old. And I have less apps on this 1 than I did on my 4g. And they are the same apps I had before. I actually noticed this the second day I had it but was typo lazy to do anything about it.

    If youre on speaker phone or in a dark environment that may be your culprit

    There is a recalibration app i used to fix that problem. It's called Proximity Recalibrator. I didn't get it from the market; may have to google the .apk. The app symbol looks like a Lambda
