    Hey all, couldn't find the answer in forum so here it goes...

    When I make a phone call my droids screen turns off. Then when I angle it a certain way it turns back on. Is this a feature to save battery life or do I have a problem ? Either way its very annoying when I need to use the keypad during a call.
    Thanks in advance, I had no idea there were cell phone forums. Truly informative.

    It does that on purpose... there is no need to have the screen on when the phone is pressed up against your face. It turns on as soon as you take it away, so what is the problem?

    I did have the problem where it got stuck somehow and never turned back on... I had to tap the power button and unlock it. But that's only happened once or twice.

    this happens to me fairly regularly and is very frustrating...

    Just make sure the light sensor in the top left corner is not covered
