    I just got my first Droid last Thursday and this is my first time posting, so forgive me if this has been addressed. I tried searching too but found nothing (probably bc I have no idea what the feature is called)....

    Anyway.... when you dial a # and you move the phone a little to put it up to your ear, the screen automatically seems to go black. Then, if you move the phone around a bit, the screen goes back on.

    Since this is my first time with a touch-screen and i'm still getting used to the phone, I have accidentally called a few people. On other devices this isn't a big deal because I can quickly end the call. Well, since the screen goes black right away I really don't have any time to hit "End Call." So the call will ring a few times before I can turn it off.....and I feel like an ***** for calling someone by accident.


    What is this feature? And can it be turned off?

    why are you putting the phone up to your ear if you're not already on a call?

    it's a proximity sensor that turns off the screen so you don't hit buttons with your ear when you're on a call.

    afaik, you can't turn it off.
