    proximity sensor

    When I make a call, my sceen no longer blanks and my face pushes buttons. Why all of a sudden did this start?

    Is it plugged in to a charger?

    Possibility the proximity sensor is defective? Usually problems with the sensor are it doesn't 'wake up' the phone.... first I've seen that it won't let the phone 'sleep' while on call.

    I have only had my Droid for about a week, but I have seen it do a couple crazy things from time to time as I add and remove apps. So far, I have always been able to get it "back to normal" by simply turning it off, waiting a few seconds, and turning it back on again.

    If you try that and still have the issue, I'm not sure what it could be. I am looking through settings, but I can't locate anything that could cause this, or fix it.

    I have often wondered if it was my case, my skin, my screen protector or an installed app.
    I am hesitant to remove the screen protector or skin, as I paid several $$ for them, and as far as I can recall, the sensor worked after I installed the skin & screen protector. I have also removed batter for 5 minutes with no luck restoring the sensor.

    Are you using a screen protector? If so try removing or trimming the piece over the sensor.

    Do you have long hair or a beard by any chance? There are some other threads on here about that messing up the sensor. I have pretty long hair but haven't had any problems with the sensor (yet).
