Suppose I have to call Verizon just because I want to extol the virtures of my new phone & their stellar service. I make the call & get an automated response.
You know how this goes: I need to press 2 for this option, then three for that option etc. So I open the dialer & make my selection & bring the phone back to my ear to hear my next prompt. I suddenly hear a series of random beep tones & end up being routed to the Motorola section. Wtf? I just wanted to rave about my new GN! What happened?
For us grateful recovering Droid owners, we know the culprit. Proximity Sensor! The little thing near the ear speaker that would shut off the touch screen when it got close to you face . . . or maybe not . . . but the thought was nice.
Back to the GN. I notice that this particular feature doesn't seem to be present. Leaving me with no choice but to manually close the dialer before I put the screen aginst my cheek, unless I actually want to speak to the billing department about my "balance due" concerns.
Was it intentionally left off or I'm I missing something or does mine work exactly the way it did on my old Droid?

I'm pretty sure mine has a proximity sensor just like the droid. can anyone else confirm?
Yes my prox sensor works just fine. I just dialed my VM and tested it.
Have you backed up your files and pictures? I see too many desperate cries for help recovering deleted priceless pictures with no solution.

I've never had that problem..."face dialing"
The sensor turns off during speakerphone and when the dialpad is visible.
the sensor on the GN is far superior to the 4 thunderbolts i had.
STOCK GN, updated and naked
So if thats the case, and it seems that it is, how does one avoid accidentially activating button presses in the senario I've laid out above?
