    Has anyone figured out a fix for the proximity sensor? It's nearly impossible for me to keep my Droid's screen from coming on during calls. I know this has been fixed in other roms, but no fix yet for BB.

    I haven't been on the boards in a while, but this reminded me of a few things. You could try and download "sensor test" by AtmoWorker, and see what values your proximity sensor is reading. Mine goes from 6 (no finger) to 0 (finger.) Just remember the sensor itself is on the upper left hand side of your screen. Might give some insight to if it's a hardware problem. Also:

    I read a few threads a while back the the froyo update, said they changed the leveling on when exactly a screen should be off or on. I know I've dropped a few more calls "shoulder talking" on 2.2 than I ever did on 2.1.

    So that's that. A few random thoughts in my head tonight that may or may not be able to help you. Best of luck!

    yeah, this is a common issue with 2.2. it's not the proximity sensor, it's the positional sensor - i.e., a change in position/angle causes the screen to come on. i think Chevy No. 1 posted an update zip to address this issue, but i don't know if it's specific to his rom or not...

    I'm using the latest (as of this date) versionof Chevys ROM because I cannot install BBs ROM anymore (tried relentlessly) and, although it works a lot better than it has in the past, when I change angles like laying down or leaning over while talking on the phone the screen will come on and my face/ear will always press the end button. Or it presses a combination of numbers then the end button just so the other person calls me back asking wtf I did that for.

    It's a big issue for me, I don't even talk on my phone anymore without speaker or bluetooth headset.
