    Has anyone heard of an application to disable the touchscreen while on a phone call. I keep putting it on mute.

    Thanks

    I thought it has a proximity sensor that disables the touchscreen when its close to your face?

    Screebl will turn on/off your screen based on the angle you are holding your phone. Never used it but many say it is great.

    It would be a simple fix to just add a lock button...I keep hanging up...and if I keep it away far enough not to trigger..then I am told I sound muffled

    The moment does have a proximity sensor, but I've noticed that it's not foolproof. If I hold the phone the wrong way, sometimes it turns the screen back on. I've muted myself a few times on calls now. I've noticed that it's especially bad if I have to pinch the phone between my head and my shoulder because I'm doing something that requires both hands.
