Week - 27 iP4 Replacement STILL Has Issues!!
Just when I thought I'd gotten the "perfect" replacement iPhone 4...it suddenly begins to exhibit the same proximity sensor issues my original one had!
I inadvertently put three incoming calls on "mute" last night because the PS failed and I hit the mute button with my cheek.
My nearest Apple store is over three-hours away...and I made that trip once to do an exchange. I refuse to do that again only to get another phone with the same problem!
What to do?
Makes returning to the ultra-reliable BlackBerry more attractive than ever! Grrrrrrrrrrr!!!!
Come on, Apple...get your act together!

Apple has promised a fix for this in the next software update. Not saying all phones have this but it is a known bug. I have gotten a replacement as well and it is worse than my original. It does not do it all the time but I have to make sure I keep it close to my ear during calls. I would say stick with what you have and wait for the update. If you just can't do it, return it and sit tight with Blackberry. WHo knows, you may want the new 9800 slider when it comes out.

Testing the Beta 2 release, the sensor is NOT fixed. Nor is the indoor white balance issue that has been documented as well.

The prox sensor "is" a known software issue. Apple stated that in the press conference when they announced the bumpers, they also stated a software update would fix it - 4.1 does fix it, and it's in beta 3. it'll probably be released in september. but regardless how many times you swap it, you'll still have it.
a quick workaround (for now), when it starts doing it again, go into settings --> General ---> Reset and from there, reset all network settings and all settings. it will not delete anything from your phone, just reset brightness, etc and network passwords. pain, but it will stop it from doing it for a good week or so. it's a workaround until 4.1
