    Default Proximity Sensor 2G
    Ugh, my proximity sensor just randomly stopped working on my 2G today.

    I know a restore will probably fix it, but does anyone have any other ideas? I searched on here, but there's nothing really recent that's worked for me...

    Sucks, man...

    Thanks for any help!

    EDIT: Forgot to say I accidently engaged SBSettings before/during when I was trying to call I guess.

    I blew into the headphone jack to try and clear dust, but no luck...

    Hopefully it doesn't work after a restore so I can score a refurb.

    Any last minute ideas before I restore? Forgot to mention I've been doing a little running with it as of late... I hold it in my hand, but maybe that does something to it?

    Whatever...

    Triple post FTW.

    It's done. I restored as a new phone on 2.2.1 and it's still not working. Hopefully Apple will just switch it out and be cool about it even though it's like a year and a half old.

    Anyone who still has anything to contribute, feel free to...

    Hehe, just went to Pwn it and realized I should probably hold off.

    I dont want to be the bearer of bad news, but if the phone is over a year old, the warranty is over, so you might be out of luck...

    ^I'd be quite disappointed in that case, seeing as I don't have $300 on me for a white 3G. Thanks for the information, though... Hopefully it works out, I'll update tomorrow/whenever I get to the Apple store.

    They could still switch it out like they've been known to do right? Or are they stricter outside of warranty?

    Regardless, thanks for the response...
