    Hi all,

    Droid owner here, running Sapphire 1.1.0. (Yes, freshly wiped at install time).

    I am noticing that when I swipe to answer an incoming call, every time the screen immediately goes black. The call is active and I am able to talk and hear the person, but the screen does not light back up until the call is ended. This is done whether or not my face is against the screen.

    Outgoing calls allow me to see the call buttons until I place it close to my ear (as it's supposed to).

    Is this normal behavior for this ROM? It worked correctly on stock.

    Thanks!

    Lots of viewers...does someone want to at least say "Yes my phone does this too," or "No, I don't think this is normal?"

    That is not normal. If that was happening to my phone, I'd do a fresh download of the rom and reinstall.

    Mine stays black after a call has ended and I have to slide out the keyboard to bring the screen back. Would that indicate a problem with the proximity sensor?

    my droid does this as well after upgrading...

    I upgraded from Sapphhire 1.0.0 to 1.1.1 and I noticed this problem right away. I answer a lot of calls and its a bummer that on every single call i need to press the power on button to wake up the screen so I can push # and actually answer the call (i use a pbx system that makes me push # to connect).

    Any help with this would be appreciated. I am considering downgrading back to 1.0.0 but I'd rather not.

    did some testing

    I used terminal emulator and did switchapk phone cytown and then tested. When an incoming call came I did the swipe and the screen stayed on as it is suppose it. I then did switchapk phone stock and tested again... screen goes dark after swipe on incoming call.

    I guess a temporary fix for me is to stick with cytown phone apk until the next sapphire release. I would prefer using the stock phone apk since calls equal money for me and I need as much stability as possible. Hopefully the cytown apk is stable. Does anyone have info about its stability?
