    An app to lock the screen during phone calls so that when my ear leaves the sensor I won't hang up on / mute / or speaker phone my caller. Any suggestions? This is an ongoing frustration ...

    How about pushing the lock button on the phone?

    That didn't work for me, unless there's some way to activate the lock button other than just pressing it. What is the lock button's purpose?

    I think that one deserves some sort of prize.

    Thanks for the sarcasm ... and for the unhelpful response.

    It dispenses 1 dread lock per day. No really...it locks the phone. I find it to be very useful for attempting to conserve my battery. Send a text, hit lock, screen goes off saving the display.

    I consider the top button an "on / off" function, and the lock, the slider on the screen. I'll try something different the next time I get a call. For now, I have to always have my ear firmly pressed in the same location or else the screen pops on. I seem to be the only one who finds this problematic! Thanks for suggestions.

    The slider on the screen is an "unlock" feature. The top button locks the screen and gives a few different options when held down. If you have to hold the phone directly to your ear to keep the screen off, you may have a defective phone. My screen doesn't turn on until it's about 3 inches away. I'd take it in and have a tech look at it.
