Default red sensor while on call

I received my refurb and I noticed that while on a call, the proximity sensor I think it's called, the one that turns the screen off while on call, I can literally see the red light, and it turn off when phone call is over.. did I miss this on my first phone, can anyone else see it, are my eyes special?

in my case, it is blue... :D

if you pay attention to che mic on the top of the dinc2, you can see that it is perfectly up the sensor so, if you point the mic to a direct light source and look at the phone, you can see the red lens.

in y case it is blue because i have a transparent blue cover ... i noticed it in my car when , after a call, i have it in my hand and the light of the car is on....

i wish it can help :D

I haven't noticed it with the DINC2 yet, but my D2G had the same thing. Never noticed the correlation, but it makes sense. The light is probably used with the prox sensor.

EDIT: Used Elixir just now, and best I can figure, it's used to as part of the prox sensor. I did see it when I turned the sensor on, so the sensor is likely only activated normally during a phone call.
Current: HTC Droid Incredible 2 and Motorola Droid 2 Global.

Former: Blackberry Bold 9700, iPhone 3G, HTC Fuze, Samsung Epix, Treo 750, Cingular 8525, Cingular 8125, Audiovox SMT5600, other non-important junk.

I only see it when on a call, once hitting end button it turns off. I don't know if it's normal, or my eyes are special or something, but I had it on two refurbs, and I might go to the store to see if this is something that is normal, otherwise hopefully new phone

I'm fairly certain it's normal, although it goes unnoticed by most people. I recently received 4 "like new" fascinates and each of them have the red flickering you described.

Because they are sending out brand new ones as refurbs. I thought so after all three I received through the mail were brand new until this fourth one.
