    True.... You could just hit speaker to play the message and that way you can see the point you need to back it up too couldn't you?

    Yes, the screen will come back on when the voicemail ends. But some of us use the phone for business and sometimes you may need to back up to replay part of the message. That becomes an annoyance when a customer leaves a 45s+ message. It wastes time and is overall inconvenient.
    I have to agree. If it were properly using the proximity sensor to detect if it were on the ear then fine, turn off the screen. But if it is turning it off simply because it ASSUMES it is being used on the ear, that is stupid. Many times a user would want to pull away from ear and back up or skip or whatever, while it is still playing.

    Ohhh for those of u saying the voicemail screen goes blank....there's a reason for that...when u select voicemail there are options...first one if u use the transcription option that's new now like I do u can read ur voicemail...
    Second if u want it on speaker u select the speaker option and the screen stays lit up and u hear the voicemail...
    Third u just select play....yes it blacks out because u should have the phone to your ear listening to your voicemail! If u wait till ur voicemail is over then it comes back on and u can decide to delete or save it...
    There is nothing wrong with that....quit ing.....I don't like some of the bugs either ...yes their are legitimate bugs but starting a thread like this to just complain without thinking first and trying to fix ur own problems is just stupid.

    As for everyone thinking that I started this thread out of hatred for the phone and lack of taking responsibility to fix my own problems, I simply stated a couple of things that were new to me and a little bit of a hassle to work with. Obviously there are plenty of people having the Same issues. I don't have all kinds of empty time on my hands to "explore" my phone. I use my phone for a few basic but yet important things. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE MY PHONE. I really appreciate all the people that have dropped in on this thread and put in their .02!!

    Mine seems to be working as it should. The only time my screen blacks out is when I put my phone to my ear as the prox. sensor is making the screen go blank. As soon as I remove the phone from my ear, the screen turns back on to let me pause, delete, etc. VM was going to be updated in the last MR back in august, but we did not get it 'cause it had some bugs... Now that we have it, we will need a future MR to fix the bugs some of us are having...

    I don't think it is so much people think you started the thread because you hate this phone, I think most of the feelings like that came from the title of the thread. There have been way to many people who come to this phone specific forum to bash this phone where most feel if you don't like this phone then don't come to this thread it is pretty much that simple. I'm glad you love this phone as I love this phone as well. I'm glad you made a point that you are not bashing the phone just pointing out some things you noticed and I'm glad you got some answers you were looking for.

    Jus an additional point on top of Ice's, many of your complaints, once enumerated, have threads already ongoing here. If you're looking for specific help with an issue it is much better to read those threads and see if it resolves the issue for you. If it doesn't, you can ask a question or raise an issue in that thread.

    Most of us read these forums not only looking for help, but to also provide help to others who need it. Having topics, questions, resolutions maintained in a single thread makes it easier for us to point people there to help them.

    Glad you love your EVO!

    Long time EVO owner. Had the og EVO for 2+ years and I was the first person to pick up pre-order LTE EVO from my local BB. From here on out I will choose choice words when starting a thread to save on confusion!!! Again, thanks and hope everyone has a good day.

    EXACTLY my point.

    And the screen doesn't turn off, it just turns black as if the app is going to crash (notice the notification bar is still active), or like it's stuck in transition to another screen. SO it's not the proximity sensor.

    This is an issue, it wasn't done on purpose. I can't think of any way this was done purposely.

    Tried out the voicemail today, first time since update and having the same problem with the app. Screen goes black while audio is playing and there is no way to do anything until the message is done playing.

    Your behavior is different. My screen shuts completely off the same way the dialer does. Hitting power does nothing; the screen doesn't turn back on until the message finishes.

    Either way, that's quite the problem, right?
