    It's called Sensor Test...you get it from the market place.

    Scroll down to bottom and under sensor the numbers should read

    2.14xxxxxx while uncovered

    3.0 when you cover the sensor.


    your phone is fine btw.....the real issue is when the phone is unresponsive to anything. Screen goes dark and the bottom row of keys will light up but you can't get the device to respond. The only way is a battery pull

    thanks for the info! I just dl'd Sensor test and it shows the same results that you state.

    thank you for confirming that my droid is fine, I thought it was, but was shocked at the length of time for the screen to respond after an extensive call.

    Looking at some of the information that Sensor Test offers, I did notice that it registers temperature of the device, maybe extensive time on a call increases the temp and causes a slow response? That would make sense to me about the device not being responsive....

    you may want to turn off the auto dimming feature...that should fix the problem you are having.

    I'm glad we have several people working on this. I do have ATK, and I will uninstall, I hardly use it anyway (because of the cases of OCD we heard of earlier haha). If I continue to have that problem, than I will post again or reset. Last night I talked on the phone twice for a little under 20 minutes and I was pulling phone away from my face every few minutes to keep the screen on its toes. May have helped, but like I said before, my Droid froze like that when I was multitasking and talked on the phone for awhile. Otherwise, DROID = AWESOME

    yeah it's something to monitor. I will do some more research and see if there are any solutions or if this is caused by faulty proximity sensors or the ATK.

    Interesting to say the least. Bugs : )

    I'll keep this in mind since I bought it just a month ago and I rather have it checked by the warranty tech service before they blame me for any problem the phone might have.
    Thanks a lot :)

    when did you buy exackly? when I try to get new one they don't want to give to me new one, I told them, even I fixed it happen again and again. they finaally give me new one, you have to teld them you resetted factory setting and doesn't work, and they they will give new one. you can refund or cancelled the plan before one month, but even little over 1 month, they will give you new phone. because mine was little over 1 month.

    ATK was the first app i installed (over a month ago)
    I've since installed a ton of apps and today is the first time the black screen freezing occurred (twice)

    I'm not convinced it's ATK that's killing the screen. Does anyone have a proposal for how we can all create a list of what apps we have installed when the freeze happens? That way when more and more people report the full list of their apps we can conclude which app causes it... if it's an app

    Also -- quite important: I was NOT in a call, or after a call when this happened... i was texting if anything at all...

    Twittdroid might be the problem

    In my case i just installed the ones I really needed so it wasn't that hard to check uninstalling one by one to see what happened. When I got read fo Twittdroid the screen stop freezing and it never froze again. I guess it was this app in this case...
