active screen on call
I am having a hard time finding an answer for this... hopefully you can help.
My wife has the Moment and has an issue with the screen staying active while she is on a call. This causes her to sometimes hang up on the person she is talking to with her cheek.
is there a way to disable the screen while she is on a call?Bears. Beats. Battlestar Galactica

There is a proximity sensor in the upper left side of the phone. If it's not working (maybe try the prox. sensor test), then I'd suggest taking it in for replacement. It may not be working, which could cause the screen not to turn off, or there's an app running that's keeping it on. It should, turn off the screen (sometimes it's a little slow), then turn back on when taken away from your ear.

There's an app in the market called Sensor List, that might help.

One way you could test the sensors... there is an app on the marketplace called "Sensor List". It's pretty tech oriented, but will definately let you know if the sensors are working or acting up. Link to the app is here and QR code is pasted below: http://market.android.com/search?q=p...ndroid.sensors
The sensors aren't really named in a recognizable way in the app. The proximity sensor on my phone is listed as "GP2AP"... maybe it will be the same on yours... don't know. If you can see the sensors not working in the app, you can use that as proof to a Sprint rep to replace your phone under a manufacturer defect warranty.
Hope this helps...

Seraph had a good answer I think.
