    I've hung up accidentally on a couple calls now, which led me to investigate a bit. What I found is that my sideburns confuse the proximity sensor - if the sensor over my ear, the display is off. If it's over my sideburns, the display is on. I also tested this with the top of my head - same deal, display stays on.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Hopefully it can be fixed.

    I have the same problem, and I'm not about to shave my head.

    I'm curious if this issue has to do with hair color. Mine is dark brown. Anyone else?

    Same. I find holding it a little lower on my ear helps.
