    Don't know what you're talking about. The phone goes black when it contacts the face but when you pull it away everything is suppose to be there. If it isn't I would suspect you have a defective phone.

    He means the sleep mode.

    I have bluetooth, and the phone would goto sleep while on a call and lock.

    I then have to draw the pattern to unlock it.

    On occasion, and there seems to be no identifiable pattern to this, during a call when I pull the phone away from my ear/face the screen remains dark. To wake it back up I just quick push the power button. When I do this it wakes back up to the phone screen and I do not have to unlock it again. It is a bit of an inconvenience but not a big deal. Can be more of an annoyance if I'm on a call that requires inputting numbers on the dialpad when interacting with a directory menu of a business I am calling. Most of the time the screen wakes right back up when I remove the phone from my ear just like it's supposed to.

    Grouping my contacts

    Can someone please tell me how to group my contacts once they are in the phone? I imported them today, and have figured out how to assign ringtones (thanks to your forum!) but can't find anything about grouping.

    Thanks.

    keywords "supposed to be there"

    when i bring it away from my face and go to hang up on the call, the phone locks. i need to do my pattern to unlock and then it allows me to hang up.

    no fixes for this anyone?

    You Can do it by downloading an APP (Forgot the name, My new DROID comes back tomorrow, old one was returned to Verizon).

    Something like Contact Plus or something.

    Or you can log into Gmail and manage the contact into different groups.

    AFAIK the default Contact Program doesn't show grouping.

    Wrong Thread

    Grouping contacts belongs elsewhere.

    yes mine has also been doing this, was looking for the answer to it myself. Dont seem like any kind of pattern just doing it random. It is a pain to have to swipe it to hang up a phone call, or answer another call.
