    I have seen this other phones. I forget which one it is, but it is either a light sensor or proximity sensor. The light sensor is for the auto brightness on the screen and the proximity sensor is used to turn off the screen while the phone is against your ear while on a call.

    I understand that but it was on while just sitting there on the dresser counter. I picked it up to look at the time and saw the light. Sometimes when i make a call . the screen would turn off and i would'nt have the phone near my face at all.

    Bring it into Sprint. My guess (although, a bit far-fetched) is that something is wrong with the proximity sensor so that red light is sort of a sign that the proximity sensor is broken.

    Yeah it sounds like your proximity sensor is getting stuck on. Could be your sensor is failing. If it continues you'll probably have to take it in.

    When you lose data, it comes on.
