    iphone 3g proximity, great deals on Cell Phones PDAs, Computers Networking on eBay!

    i bought mine from the ez elektronix california seller, i live in florida and got the product in 3 days.

    It looked exactly like the OEM ribbon too, so that was a plus. It works like a charm

    it IS the ribbon that's causing your problem (i'm assuming you've already done a firmware restore) since the sensors are on the ribbon.

    has the phone ever been cracked open/had replacement digitizer-glass/lcd?
