    When I use my phone for any length of conversation, my ear must make a bunch of changes, so when I disconnect, I have to reset the brightness, Bluetooth, date, and other settings. Is there some place I can set it so that the screen locks or something while a phone call is in progress?

    Welcome to Android Central! When you're on a call and the phone is against your ear, does the screen go black? It's supposed to, which prevents your ear from pressing any buttons.

    No...the screen does not go black. Is there a way to fix that in the settings?

    Some phones might have a setting, but in general, the proximity sensor should always make the screen sleep on a call when the phone is against your ear--otherwise, you'd always be pressing things with your ear. Your proximity sensor might be faulty.

    Open the Phone (aka Dialer) application, press the Menu button, select Call settings and be sure that 'Turn off screen during calls' is checked.

    Is that specifically for the S3? It's interesting--I don't quite understand why any phone would have that setting, assuming it also had a proximity sensor. Why would anyone want the screen to stay on while on a non-speakerphone call?
