    So this has happened to me 3 times now. While on a phone call, I pull the phone away from my face and the screen stays black. Nothing I do brings it back. I cant even end the call until the other person hangs up, then the home screen comes back. Anybody else having this issue?

    same thing happened to me once and the only thing that brought it back was a battery pull. Not good.

    Sounds like your proximity sensor might be bad.

    Bring it to the Verizon store and see if you can replicate it and get it replaced.

    Same thing here. I have made many short phone calls and had not issue. It only happened after a call that lasted about 25 minutes.

    Yeah, I this happened to me also. I was able to do a to power it off by holding down the power button for several seconds. I'm glad this worked instead of having to take battery out.

    It's going into time out after the specified time. Default is 1 minute.

    Just set it at always on.

    Just another of the infinate flaws with this phone.

    Nah... Mine is doing it too, and I set it to NO TIME OUT. Still get a black screen. If I move the phone around sometimes it will come back, but this is very annoying and I am taking it back to Verizon store to see what they say today.
