    I found a few threads about this in the European HTC Hero section. I also saw someone posted the question in Sprint's thread, however I can't find it through the search function. Does anyone know of an app or any way to turn the screen off while making a call. I know it automatically times out and turns the screen off, but I have hit the end call button too many times now. Hopefully there is a fix out or in the works for this.

    The Hero doesn't have a proximity sensor to shut off the screen while on a call?

    the screen turns off after a few seconds into the call.. i think it's 30 seconds.

    The screen turns off yes, but the touchscreen does not and if you're not careful you can end the call by hitting the big red end button at the bottom.

    The Hero does not have a proximity detector from what I've read. This is one of the bigger flaws with the phone I've come across myself. I'm hoping someone make an app to actually lock the screen while on an active call.

    Correct. No proximity sensor on the phone.
    I have yet to hang up on someone yet, but thats probably cause I usually have my headset on.

    you know! i have had a couple few random hangups - literally probably only three but.. i wonder if this could have been the cause!

    i didn't know the screen was still "on" when the light was "off"
