Is there any way to keep the screen on during a call?

    I hate having to hit the top button and unlock the phone just to hang up a call. I know I can make the screen never turn off but that won't help me much.

    As of right now there isn't a way to. Likely when rooting becomes more widespread/advanced we'll be able to change the behavior of the proximity sensor among other things.

    Doesn't the screen come back on when you pull the phone away from your face? That's the way my incredible works. And my calls have been long enough for the 2-min screen saver to kick in, but it still comes back on when I move the phone away.

    Thanks much.. I generally use Bluetooth or speakerphone so I'm unsure of that.

    God I hope someone figures this out soon. Turns out this is only an issue if you have a hands free device for speaking on the phone and your warm head isn't near the phone..
