Based on the code I read through for Phone.apk or whatever, it seems like it is supposed to disable the proximity sensor when you're using bluetooth, just like when using the speakerphone - but it doesn't. I can't figure out why, and I noticed another thread floating around with users having the same issue.
I want to be able to use my phone while on a call and not have to worry about a shift in overhead light or something passing over the sensor and flipping the screen off while I'm trying to use it.
I would much prefer the ability to disable it entirely, and have full control of the screen off/on using the power button.
There was one app on the app store recommended in my searches that let's you lock the screen on and only go off based on orientation or something, but it doesn't seem to work for the HTC Incredible
