iPhone 4S proximity sensor

Two threads have popped up in our forums, with people noting that the iPhone 4 proximity sensor turns on the screen too easily, which means buttons are pressed with your face, and accidental hangups. Here are what a few people are saying:

They moved it from the 3GS and it’s not acting right. It’s sensing my ear and mashing the dial pad while in a conversation. You really have to press it against your ear.

I have hung up on people 3 times already while holding the phone to my ear with my shoulder (hands full).

Has anyone noticed that the sensor that tells the phone when your holding it up to your ear is extremely sensitive? I mean, NEVER before have I cheek dialed, hit the mute with my ear lobe, or hung up on someone inadvertently. However, 3 times in one call last night and twice today I hung up on people, all inside of a three minute call. I have NOT changed the way I hold my phone when talking by the way. I also hit the mute button several times and pulled up the keypad and dialed some numbers while on the call. I actually told my buddy to stop pushing buttons because I thought it was him…NOPE! All me.

Anyone else noticing this super sensitivity?

Deke736:

I noticed this as well. My first call I hung up on my father-in-law, and my second call I hit the speaker button with my cheek. I thought it was just me.

If you’ve hit this issue too, let us know in the comments or on the forum!
