    hi,when im making a phone call as soon as i hit call the screen goes blank and i have to shake the phone quicly to bring it back.
    this is a as been a a problem a couple of times when i have either called the wrong person or decided not to call them right at that moment.
    is there a way/setting to change the time the screen stays on when making a call ?

    It almost sounds like something is covering your proximity sensor. This checks to see if you have the phone close to your face which then turns the screen off. Otherwise, it should time out according to your screen timeout setting.

    The proximity sensor, if you don't know, is located on the top left corner, just above the screen. Keep your hands clear of that area and see if the problem goes away.
