    Calling voice, advised to enter password; the key pad flashes except when speaker is on making entering password almost impossible.

    Move your hand around the face of the phone when you're on a call and see where your hand has to be to shut the screen off. There's a proximity detector that should be near the speaker (the part you put to your ear) that blanks the screen out so you don't "cheek dial".

    Either you're dialing with your hand up near the sensor (that's why I said to wave your hand around the face of the phone - you'll see where the sensor is active) and you just have to place your hand differently when you dial, or the sensor is too sensitive and is shutting the screen off whenever anything gets anywhere near the screen (that's covered under the warranty).
