    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.

    This is really annoying if on a phone call and you need to enter digits or numbers. It seems as though when the phone is motionless the screen times out and when it detects motion it will light back up. Seems like there should be an easy fix for this.

    I hope that Moto/Verizon are monitoring these boards- they better be working 24/7 to fix these simple issues- negative issues spread really fast and get out of control- in my opinion there should be an update really fast to address these "small" issues that are really annoying - it will give those of us who have purchased a droid some comfort and let us know that we are appreciated and for the potential buyers that the device will be getting better in short order.

    I'd bet they aren't monitoring these boards closely.

    @pilot25... infinite problems? What other issues are you having?

    I just posted a thread about the phone not waking up what to do. I and a few others are having issues where the phone goes into some crash mode.. or sleep mode, and wont turn on without a battery pop. I joined this forum because of it, hoping many others were having this.. so far only two others. I called verizon today and they are sending me a new phone. I did not try a hard reset tho, or replacing the SDHC card to see if that was the issue. I personally didn't want to QA this phone.

    I don't know if verizon or moto monitors these forums, but I am sure if enough of you call in to verizon or take the phones back, they'll start seeing more and more entries into their system and word will get out. It wont be a one week thing tho. It takes time to diagnose, try to fix and test issues like these, and then sending out an update right away wont be so easy as well. As far as I know, the updates we may get are Android based and not phone based. So I would guess the next update we get is Dec 11 from what i've seen on these forums. It's to fix the camera issue, and probably other things.

    Same problem here. It happened to me about 6 times this weekend. Once calling someone Saturday morning at 7 AM. " How to lose Friends and Not Influence People!!"

    Alright Pilot GO Yankees!

    I might have to take my phone back I guess if some are having the issue and some are not. I have my setting so the screen never times out and will test that tonight. Ill report back with my findings.
