I'd Like to know the trick where our old Evos had a proximity sensor for when you move the phone from your face during a call it would launchthe phone screen thus allowing you to hang up quickly. I can seen to find the option to turn that on, on the new Eco.

The one that everyone should know by now...

* While holding down the POWER button, tap the HOME button to take a screenshot of the screen you're currently on. (The screen will flash and the message "screenshot saved to Camera shots" will appear on the screen to confirm the screenshot has been taken.)

ICS natively supports screen shots. Press and hold power and volume down and you get the animation and everything unlike pressing home.

I'm not sure if it's the screen protector causing it, but it just doesn't automatically turn on when I move my face away from the phone during a call. Never really knew how nice the feature was until not having it annoyed me, lol

Same here. Really annoying, especially when you want to hang up and have to unlock the screen to do it!

From the User's Manual, p. 10:

Proximity sensor automatically switches the display screen off when you hold the phone near your face during a call. When activated, the proximity sensor does not affect the phone’s 3G, 4G, or Wi-Fi connection.
If you want to use a screen protector, please don’t cover and block the proximity sensor. You can purchase the dedicated screen protector for your phone that already has a small opening for the sensor.

Like someone else suggested, it is probably the screen protector that's preventing the action from happening. If it is, then you may be able to uncover the sensor and recover functionality.

I'll be giving it a try tomorrow once I get a razor blade, hopefully that works, but the Zagg HD skin has a notch for it which makes it weird that it doesn't work.

Thx! I heard about the power+volume down button screen snapshot, but not this one. Whew, another trick!
