    Default iPhone screen stays lit during calls
    The title says it all. Now I'm not talking about speakerphone or headphone or bluetooth. I'm talking about when you put the phone to your ear and the screen is supposed to go black. It's irritating to hold up my phone from a distance to avoid tapping on the buttons on the screen. Plus my battery life is draining like crazy too during these "lit calls"

    Well you either didnt put the proximity cable all the way in (#3) or you damaged the cable.
