Default Screen wake during call

Something weird is happening during a phone call. While I'm talking I'll pull the phone away from my head and the screen won't turn on, ever. Even when I want to end the call I have to press the power button and then end call after the screen turns on. Doesn't matter what ROM I'm on. Also a buddy who isn't even rooted has the same problem. I'm hoping it just a stupid setting.

Any ideas?

Same problem here.. even on a fresh room install.. so I'm afraid it is not a settings issue

Do you guys have a case for it? Maybe the sensor is covered somehow.

Yes I have a case but I had the case since I got the phone and it only recently started doing this

Took the case off and tried nothing. Does it go by a light sensor or the gyro?

Happened to me and I found the solution on another thread. Sounds stupid but it worked for me. Blow into the ear piece. I used a compressed air spray can but it may work with just your mouth. Apparently some dust gets in front of the proximity detector inside the phone next to the ear piece. This removed it. Give it a shot.
