    This may be just me or my combo of applications but, When I enter a number on the touchpad and press dial the screen goes dark and will not come back or accept input unless I put the phone to my face or otherwise cover the the light sensor. Even pressing the power button does not bring the screen back . I have forced the 2.1 update and have not noticed this behavior before. Not a big deal but is annoying if you dial a wrong number. Can anyone else replicate this??

    If the provided link contained malicious software you need to factory reset immediately, the forced update may have brought about a bug in the proximity sensor which normally blackens the screen when making a call. this is only meant for saving battery and should not act up when dialing. be sure to thank me if this was helpful.:D
