    That sounds like the proximity sensor shutting the screen off when you out it up to your head so you don't press buttons

    This. If you want to use the screen while talking then don't put anything near the top of the phone (area around the speaker) and it shouldn't turn off the screen.

    I think it's suppose to do that. As long as the screen comes back on when you take it away from your ear, its working right. I didn't even know you could turn it off.
