    This just started recently, I've had the phone since Dec 3rd.

    Randomly during a call, the phone beeps in my ear. When I look at the screen, its the phone call screen like usually, but instead of showing the caller, its black/blank. You can still see the "add call" and "end" etc buttons, but nothing works and the call is gone. It stays that way on the screen until I hit the Home button. It seems like it may have something to do with the service, but I don't know that for sure.

    any ideas?

    Got to find out if it's the phone or an app. Probably best thing to do is do a factory reset. Use it for a day or so without any apps then start adding the apps back in. If it starts up again you know it's an app issue, if it starts immediately it's time to get a new phone, or in your case most likely a refurb.
