    My proximity sensor seems to always be "on" so not only will it turn the screen off when I am on a call, but also whenever I play a game, or do anything with my phone, even when on the lock screen. I have to be very careful not to put my finger near the proximity sensor or else the screen turns off.

    This seems to be sporadic. Even after reset, the problem persists, however, right now it suddenly works as it is supposed to. Who knows what this afternoon will hold!

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you have a case or screen protector on your S3?
