    I've read that the sensor messes up when you restore from backup. Have you tried restoring and setting the phone up as new? From what I've read, this fixes it completely.

    You'll lose all your texts and so on, but I guess that's still better than having a non-working phone.

    I had the prox sensor problem with mine and I talked to an Apple customer service person and he told me to update to 4.0.1 and I did and it fixed mine!

    I just had a heck of a time updating and finally had to do a restore and Itunes gave me a lot of problems!
