    Default Proximity Sensor Problems - How Many People?
    I've got a case on my iPhone 4, so I'm not experiencing the antenna issue, and I was also spared the yellow splotches on the screen. But one thing my wife and I are experiencing are proximity sensor issues, where the touch screen will just randomly turn on while you're in the middle of a phone call, usually leading to me pressing the mute button with my cheek.

    Anybody else experiencing this with any regularity? I'm sincerely hoping that like the antenna, this may be able to be solved with a software update.

    Yep, mines has been doing that since day one. They should of kept the sensor in the same spot as previous iPhones, but thy moved it right above the earpiece.

    My phone was doing this. But, I went into settings> General> Reset> Reset Network Settings. I don't know why, but that fixed it for me.

    My GF was having problems with the sensor on hers as well, but it was due to the big leather case. Switching to a more minimalistic case fixed that problem.
