    Hey everyone.. A strange behavior of my international S3 (not rooted) : every once in a while when I swipe a contact to initiate a phone call, when I take the phone off my ear, the screen stays black and I cannot do anything till the other party hangs up.

    For instance, if I want to hang up the phone, I can't do it cause screen is black and it won't turn on not even if I press the home button or the on/off button.

    The only thing that makes screen responsive is if the other party hangs up. So that means a restart a day for my phone.. Anyone encountered this problem before?

    never heard of an issue like that to test u can set up the power button to end calls and see if that helps.

    It seems my proximity sensor was acting weird, since at times my screen wouldn't time out when I put the phone to my ear and sometimes it would turn off right after initiating a call, never giving me an option to end the call, or show the keypad or anything usable on the screen.

    I took out the battery and now it seems to be working fine... But still, it's troubling me...
