    I'm running the same as you are and I just tested my sensor out on three calls and it worked just fine. Maybe try reflashing the ROM?

    Your proximity sensor could be failing. I've read of several that did.

    I was on a trip, I will try a reflash when I get home. It may be failing if so that would be annoying. I have only had the phone for 9 months now. The proxy or proximity sensor.. is the small sensor on the upper left side of the phone and it should black your screen when you place the phone next to your head in a phone call

    As a edit to my above post, I just did a backup apps and re did the rom though rom manager, wiped cache and data and then restored apps, same problem. I will also try uninstalling a few newer apps to see if that caused it or its just from age.

    this might not solve your problem, but it is something to try before determining if your prox sensor went bad. a couple of times (on various roms) I have experienced an issue that wiping data/ switching roms didnt fix. one time my phone would not get reception regardless of where it was, small issues like camera not working or gallery not workin or battery draining when power is off.

    The only fix I found for those issues was to completely unroot and load stock android unrooted on my phone. then once that is up and running to re root and load a custom rom. after I did that all my problems were fixed.... duno why, but that was the only thing that has completely fixed my phone a couple of times..

    Seems alittle extreme but I will try it here shortly, did you use rom manager for flashing back and forth? Or sprecovery?

    it is a bit extreme which is why it is only a last resort. when i am unrooted I first flash sprecovery to load my first custom rom, then I switch to rom manager
