    I guess you're referring to the old (remove battery, one finger salute gesture....point finger at hardware guy....no, point finger at software guy) issue.

    Sayin'

    Did they have you go into your settings and do the reset? Is that what you are referring to?

    not your phone setting, basically, you have to formatting (factory resetting). you can't not do by yourself, only authorize Verizon store or you can call the verizonwireless. they will resetting your phone. you will lose all application after reset.

    no....i'm running a Sensor test right now. It may be an issue with the sensor. A factory reset wont fix that...

    I'll run test and let you know what it comes up with

    i can say ive never had this problem. the only thing close is that when under the navigation, i received a call and the nav talked all through the call. annoying but ok.

    no, it's not sensor, I thought that too at first time. trust me, it's not hardware issue. it's application issue. When I was in verizon store, they tech. guy told me that many people have same problem Droid. I think, they will come out something soon.

    Ok so the proximity Sensor is working ok......

    I think it's The Advanced Task Killer that is doing it....

    I've been experimenting with the OS and let it run all by itself......

    Installed ATK because I hear it MAY be causing issues. So being the experimenter that I am I wanted to see if it would create problems as some have suggested.

    I'm deleting again. Let this be a warning. ATK does in fact cause problems this is the only app that I reinstalled and it created the problem.

    This is why I installed it to see if it were in fact true....here's the post.


    it went black and would not respond to anything, including unlock then you should return it for a replacement. It's not normal for this to happen and it is defective.
    I'd also like to repeat my caution about using app killer applications. It's not helpful and could be causing some of these problems.

    no, even you deleted all application, it will be have same problem unless you reset. it will be still remain your phone even you deleted all application.
    and I don't think it's The Advanced Task Killer. because I have that one in the begging. I start my problem after I installed some free game. so I sugest reset the phone. it take only 5 minute, if you are afrid to reset the phone?

    I have no apps on my phone except barcode scanner, shazam, and bump.

    Problem happened when I installed ATK......

    I'm going to run another test on it right now. I will use the phone for 20+ minutes and see if it happens again.

    Last resort will be factory reset

    Ok so here is the deal. Called up another line for 30 minutes and left the Proximity sensor covered.

    Disconnected from call and the phone was fine.

    The ONLY new app I installed was the Advanced Task Killer and the problem came up.

    Won you have the app as well I noticed. So it may not exhibit the problem right away but I'd be willing to bet it will return somewhere down the line.

    I ran the Sensor Test and my phone passed so that is a definite rule out.

    I would advise anybody stumbling upon this thread to use ATK at their own risk.

    Ok Guys, I have had the droid two days now. I have had extensive amount of phone calls over 30 mins each. (an additional battery may be in the works soon ;) ) Each time I have had calls over 30 mins, I get the non response from the screen, buttons light up and I wait about a minute. The screen comes back after that. The only apps I have are a wifi manager and listen for podcast streaming. I believe cereal, it might be a sensor issue. I don't have ATK and can consistently recreate the issue. I will keep ya posted.......

    BTW, Cereal, what sensor test are you running?
