Not able to answer calls

    My problem is that when I get an incoming call the screen stays blank. No icons appear to let me answer or reject the call. Hitting the power button kills the call. I can then locate the missed call and ring back. It works fine on Bluetooth in the car as normal. So have I altered a setting somehow or is the phone now faulty?

    Any advice greatly appreciated. I have turned off and on a few times but that didn't help either

    Try a factory reset.

    Check the proximity sensor isn't obstructed, like if it's covered with a screen protector or dirt or something. It's located at the top near the front facing camera.

    Thanks very much for the suggestions. I will try the reset as soon as I have backed it up. The sensor seems clear and clean. I will post back as to whether it worked.
