    I noticed before I rooted my phone locked fine. Now if I hold the phone with my neck I constantly hit the buttons with my face. How can I fix this?

    It sounds like the rom is not activating the proximity sensor. The screen stays on even when its held up against your face correct? If that's the case then try reflashing the rom. If simply reflashing it doesn't work wipe data and cache and reflash again. If that doesn't work try a different rom. What rom was it anyways?

    Agreed, I would try reflashing. Is it actually staying on non-stop? If the answer is yes, somethings wrong and a new wipe/install usually fixes sht like that for me.

    My guess is that the rom changed the sensitivity of the proximity sensor. I know it's possible to change the duration on the prox. sensor, if stock is 1.0 second, and the rom you're on is .25 seconds for the screen to turn on, it's possible that with the angle of the phone on your neck it JUST slips out of range for a split second, then comes back in, allowing the screen to quickly flash on if the duration is set really short compared to stock.

    this is just my speculation. I had this problem with my X and was able to change the proximity sensor settings, but don't recall how and don't know how to do it on the TBolt. Maybe if you google it...

    That seems logical. There is a mod to fix that, IIRC. I used it on mine BAMF 1.6.3, because I kept hitting the volume buttons on accident and turning the phone on.
