Those really cool decal skins that make your phone look so awesome can give you some big headaches. The ones I got have tiny little holes punched out which are supposed to correspond with the 3 little circles in the upper right side of the front of the phone. This is where the proximity sensor is located which is what makes the screen go blank when you put it up to your ear. The slightest bit out of alignment blocking that sensor and your phone will start staying blank. It may clear when you open the keyboard, but not always. I almost looked very foolish by taking it back to Verizon and demanding a replacement for my "defective" phone. Thankfully I figured it out in time. From now on, I'll sacrifice a little custom fit by trimming that space out a bit before I use this type of skin. Hope this helps save someone else a lot of frustration!
