    it sounds like you may have an issue with your proximity sensor. If a factory reset doesn't fix it, then I would take it in to VZW. If you can replicate the problem in store you can get a replacement on the spot.

    First though...make sure the area around the prox sensors are clean. if there's some fingerprints or grime over them it could cause this as well.

    I had the same problem and had done some research and learned about "proximity sensor" issues. Took mine to Verizon and then saw the same issue--asked about my screen protector and if I'd gotten it from them (I had). Took it off and HURRAH--all is working correctly. Reportedly the upper left is where the sensor is and they found out their old screen protectors messed with the sensor. Put on a new one but didn't run it up to the top and phone works fine. Try it.
