    seems like i may have another proximity sensor problem. had a droid eris that kept hanging up on people and they said it was me finally i got them to get me another phone due to the proximity sensors and it quit. tonight the first time i mainly have used the actual telphone part of the cell phone, i noticed in the corner of my eye the screen going on and off while the phone was up to my head. then i heard a click to find out that i just hung up on my dad when i was talking to him. also signal was ridiculous. i live probably 5 or 6 min away from verizon, not in the woods and my dad kept tellin me he couldnt here and ended up hanging up on me once because he thought the call was lost. overall my first phone experience was horrible. this was the first problem ive had with this phone next to the battery of course. probably gonna go to verizon tomorrow and speak with them about it

    maybe looking at your phone disables the proximity sensor... try ignoring your urge to look at it next time and see if that helps

    I originally had the same problem with the Motorola Droid and took it back because of it.

    Right now, I'm noticing the light come on every now and then on the Incredible but not often enough for it to cause an issue (not yet anyway). Try to have them swap it out and see if it helps.

    just tested it out again while calling my girlfriends phone to see if it would do it and it did.
    proximity sensor is at the top right of the phone right next to the verizon word.

    Yep, had that problem tonight. I was talking with my mom and all of a sudden she was on speaker, so I must have touched something with my face. When I took the phone away from my face to try to turn off the speaker, the phone started dialing 9999999999999999999 and I was only touching the sides of the phone. I told my mom the phone was acting weird and that I would call her back. I hung up and called her back with no problem. I kept checking the phone the second time and the phone was locked. I had the same problem with 2 Moto Droids and returned them both. Sure hope this was a one time occurance for the DI.
