Default Proxmity sensor help

Hi every rom I try when I make a call my screen turns off and its hard to get it back on is there an app to stop screen going off it was easy in miui as you had the option to turn it off but ICS or sence you cant .and if I get to someones voicemail I can't hang up so I get the screen back on and half the time I have to pull battery out which is anoying

Bit of a noob question but if I upgrade my hboot will this fix the problem I have as noone has mentioned my problem

mot.proximity.delay=150

Add that to your build.prop file.
HTC Desire → HTC Desire S → Samsung Galaxy Nexus → Samsung Galaxy S3 → LG Nexus 5

Hi, i had also the issue with proximity sensor, tested by i.e. sensordump app shown no activity at all so I thoght it is broken. I sent it to HTC service centre for repair. They did just recalibration of the sensor and all is working fine now.

Seems there is no any tool nor any hidden service menu on HTC Desire like i.e on ZTE devs that enables you to recalibrate it by yourself :(
