    Went to set up my voicemail on my phone. Had to use the dial pad quite a bit. It was annoying because it kept blinking, every 5 or 10 seconds. Dial pad on, dial pad off (unlit screen), dial pad on....
    Is this normal?

    lol is this because you moved it away from your face?

    or even putting ur finger near the top left corner will activate the proximity sensor which turns the screen off - this is to prevent dialing when holding it up to your cheek

    speakerphone will deactivate this

    Ahh, thank you. Yes, I moved it away from my face to press digits.

    I use SCREEBL and under settings choose "stay on during call

    prefect solution for me.

    I have had this same problem when my hand gets too close to the proximity sensor. Being more deliberate about where my hand was solved it. just something I had to get used to I guess.
