    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.

    Mine's been doing this too since yesterday.

    I have to unlock the screen to answer or hang up the call.

    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.

    the only time my phone has ever locked itself while i was using it as a handset and not a speakerphone or during a BT call, was when the other party hung up on me.

    i'd test your proximatey sensor to see what it's doing during a call. it should go dark and then light up once the sensor is no longer blocked.

    basically, what you're experiencing is not a normal issue, and steps need to be taken to troubleshoot what is happening.

    I am having the same problem with my Droid and it is VERY inconvenient to have to enter your unlock pattern to end a call or press the number option on a phone tree! I have not seen any particular sequence of applications or settings that causes this.

    I do pull the battery from the phone to reset it, and that seems to fix it for a short time but it reverts back to the lock screen after a short time.

    I just now stopped some call log service under settings>applications>running services that was running and tested it, and I didn't have to enter the unlock code... I will do some more testing and post my findings.

    i found my solution for this problem... get KeepScreen. it's AWESOME :icon_ banana:

    you can select apps on KeepScreen and it will never lock your screen on those selected apps

    fyi - for keeping the phone screen from locking on a call, the app you want to select in KeepScreen is Dialer

    +2 I use this and it works most of the time. Sometimes I have to stop/start Keepscreen again.
