    So I have my Screen timeout set the way that I want it (10 minutes) and it works fine except for when I'm on a call. The screen will go blankafter just a few second, even if I have the keypad on display and using voice menus and such.

    Is there a way to keep that display going when I'm on a call - no timeout or long timeout?

    Thanks

    Depends. If the call is longer than you time out setting then no. The screen goes blank or turns off on a call when you out it up to your ear due to the proximity sensor. Otherwise it shouldn't lock out regardless whether you are on a call or not.

    My only complaint is the volume on my calls is low, even though I have it set to the highest level. Music, Ringtones, everything else works fine.

    Anyone else have this problem?
    Anyone know how to up the volume?

    The phone is set to detect your ear. If you pull it away from your face it should light back up.

    There is an app called KeepScreen. Works great. You tell it which programs you want to keep the screen on for and it will over ride your screen setting and keep the screen on while using that program.
