    My phone wakes up once my hand gets to the top of the phone but doesn't seem to respond when I wave over the bottom of the phone.

    Hi chad. There are two IR sensors on the bottom (one on each edge) and an IR sensor on the top right edge.

    If you go in a pitch black room and turn the display off (tap the power button not turn the phone off completely) you will notice them. Pretty neat stuff.

    I have a feeling that the three "sensors" are actually iR emitters, just like a TV remote has. I think the actual sensor, or receiver, is near the speaker, but doesn't light up. That would explain why gestures are only noticed toward the top of the phone.
