    Sucks :l I just updated to 4.1 still no difference, whenever I put the phone against my ear the screen turns off and won't turn back on until the call is over. lame, should I take it to the Genius bar?

    I think my proximity sensor is working fine, when I go close to the phone with my ear, it turns off. When I end the call and I remove my ear from the phone it turns on. Is that right ?

    a proximity sensor is when you hold your phone next to your ear, the screen will shut off so you don't accidentally end the call.
