    I was just on a call that the proximity sensor did not prevent me from muting the phone, then sending tones via the keypad, and all while holding it close to my ear. I can tell no particularly usable difference following the 4.1 update.

    Does anyone have any experience with it improving with the update?.....or not?

    Thanks,
    john

    I haven't updated the gf's phone yet and we both had the issue. I have been on 4.1GM for a while and it hasn't helped. Going to restore one more time this weekend and see if that fixes it. And update the gf's and see if it helps hers. Then if both of them are acting funky still, I can swap both. If hers is fine, we can leave hers be. Just won't have to make 2 trips.

    @iMuggle,
    What steps did you take to restore? My proximity sensor is better but still not fixed. I went through the phone settings = general = reset then restored from iTunes last night but haven't been on it that much today to test it out to see if the problem still exists.

    Mine is working fine as of now. Only had the issue once prior to 4.1 though.

    It didn't stop the proximity issue. Maybe a small band-aid
    for a gigantic cut.

    Funny you should bring this up. I had no issues while using iOS 4.0, but once I updated to 4.1 my proximity sensor seems to be not working correctly. Even when I hold my phone close to my ear the screen keeps turning on and off. Not sure what is going on.

    Both phones working fine now. The day one phone only developed the problem after a few weeks and it was hit and miss. The later unit have been fine.

    I updated my statement, but it seems as though it is
    happening less than before.

    Edit: Not a lot less though.

    That I couldn't use it at all without a headset.

    Might have me put my iPhone to the side or
    make it data only.

    I was having some small issues with the sensor, could just see it out of the corner of my eye as I was on the phone, no dropped calls. But it seems that 4.1 has fixed the issue.

    Have a call into apple today. need the proximity issue fixed or get me a new phone.

    No, it is not fixed, at least entirely. I have noticed that the screen still comes on at inappropriate times, but I have yet to have an improper hang-up or facetime call. So I guess THAT may or may not be fixed. I was very disappointed to see the screen light up when the phone was in use at my ear. So I am still using a bluetooth earpiece, although I hate doing so.

    I will continue to test the proximity sensor, and if I don't have the hangup problem then I can live with the unnecessary battery drain. The battery life is great anyway.

    4.1 has somewhat fixed my problem. On a rare occasion the display will still light up but I haven't muted or put anyone on speaker as of yet.

    I may try a virgin install before getting a replacement. However I do find it quite ridiculous that I may have to lose all my app data, notes, saved games, preferences just to get a 100% functioning proximity sensor. Come on Apple, get your crap together.

    Exactly... I've done quite a few fresh installs.

    My issue is photos in the camera roll. I don't
    like doing folders.
