It seems as if my sensor had broken. There's no way to wake the screen during phone calls, and when they end I have to pull the battery because other wise the screen just stays black. I'd just like to disable it altogether, any help?

This seems to be a common problem. I had this. I fixed it the first time by re calibrating the sensor and doing all of these stupid things with the terminal. The second time I figured out that all that has to be done is blow some compressed air into the earpiece for 10-30 seconds. Then it's fixed.

Seems to me that I'm the only one that compressed air doesn't work for

Do you have a case on your phone? Mine was doing the same thing and the air wasn't the cure it was the case. It didn't actually cover it or touch the sensor but it was close enough to it that it screws it up. Just an idea.. Take the case off...
