    Recently my phone has been giving me issues when making a call.

    It started off by not fading to black during any calls I made when holding it to my ear.

    After a while, the phone started making another call while i was in the middle of another call.

    And then it started defaulting to speaker on while making/receiving calls.

    Can't see any setting options for any of these!

    Welcome :)

    It sounds like there may be an issue with the proximity sensor? There is an option called "Flip for Speaker" in Call Settings. Does turning that off make a difference?

    These are all the same problems I used to have. Another is muting accidently muting calls with my cheek.

    My solution was to create a Tasker profile which turns off the screen (oddly labelled "Lock Phone") when "phone is off the hook".

    I have just fixed my proximity sensor issue. I watched the 'how to dissasemble HTC Desire HD' video on youtube and once I had the case off I could see the problem! The whole of the area under the speaker grill was absolutly covered in dust and dirt! I'm suprised I could still hear anything through the speaker let alone the proximity sensor working! I carefully cleaned the whole area and while I was there I removed, cleaned and re-attached the speaker too. Put it back together and problem solved!
