    The only way I can get the phone to do anything is to take the battery out.
    The phone is completely locked. I have pushed every button. tapped it on the side. Its very frustrating when this happens. Any suggestions.

    Phone is a LG Optimus Net(TM)

    people think I am nuts since I get stuck going to VM and all they can hear is me cursing trying to get the phone to go off.

    it seem the screen protector was up to high on the screen.
     
  3. I'm having the same problem with my phone (although I've had it for 1.5 years). I know it can't be my screen protector. What do you mean, as I'm wondering what I need to do?

    I think what he meant is that the screen protector was blocking the proximity sensor. That makes it think the phone is still up against your face at which time it turns the screen off by design during a call. A case might do the same thing if it got a little askew. Try cleaning the screen good too. Hopefully the sensor itself isn't going bad.
