    Phone proximity sensor bug, makes phone go mute or hang up

    Coming from chevy's roms for a long time i forgot this bug existed prior to when he fixed it during 4.X... During a phone call if I hold the phone my right shoulder it will mute, dial numbers, or hang up during the call. Moving to saphire for the first time i can see this bug is present.... see this thread:

    in call tilt sensor

    Chevy fixed it so maybe CVPCS can?

    There is a open Bugzilla ticket for this issue: Bug 66 – Proximity Sensor??? since 0.8.4

    That explains why I muted the phone in a call for the first time ever last night (and I've had it since launch day).

    It's actually an issue even with Eclair Android 2.1 the phone turning back on while holding up to your ear. Often people with long hair have the problem.

    Huh, strange. I've never had it happen before, and my hair is very short. Hopefully it was just a fluke and doesn't happen again then.

    I have never had the problem (short hair) with Eclair or Froyo but my g/f does unless she puts the phone behind her hair.

    This is not a short hair/long hair/dirty hippie issue. Please read the thread (or at least the last page) the original poster linked to.

    Yes there does appear to be at least 2 different issues relating to proximity sensor and the phone locking and staying locked when held up to ones head.

    OK - Glad I saw this post, thought something was wrong with me phone. I almost always use my bluetooth, but yesterday I took a call without it and my phone hung up!
    Also, I noticed a slight lag when swiping to answer.
