Screen Blanks, Phone Turns Off Sporadically

On the day of occurance, yesterday, I used my bluetooth ear piece and was using/re-charging my phone in my car. Later (out of the car) I noticed the screen went black but I was able to "blindly" dial a phone number on the keypad and the call went through. When my phone was called (from a land-line) the phone rang but I couldn't "answer" it. I was able to remove/re-install the battery, re-power and the display and all of the phone's visual functions were working properly. However, the bluetooth indicator kept flashing even though my earpiece was turned off. Then the screen blanked out again almost at the same time that the screen-saver would normally kick in. Some times I can flip open the phone and everything seems just fine, and then all of a sudden the cycle repeats. Another time after doing the battery drill I was able to call the phone from a land-line and the call would go through just fine. And then ...

You can try to disable your bluetooth in your settings on your phone when you have a screen and ask your service provider to send a ota to your phone that will send your settings to phone and try a master reset on phone def pass for that is 6 zeros :000000

Looks like a battery problem. You might want to replace it.

When i am talking on the phone, it goes to airplane mode and i cannot use the do i fix or lock the screen or get the airplane mode off of the quick touches

This will help to reduce the frequency of this issue occurring. I have the same problem and have not yet found a way to remove the Airplane Mode option form the action bar pull-down for the Z998 phone. It is a ZTE firmware issue, not Android.

UNDERSTAND WHAT HAPPENS: when the phone moves slightly away from your ear while talking, the proximity sensor detects that it is not close to your face and it turns the display back on as it should. The screen often comes on with the action bar pulled down and thus all the controls exposed. A moment later your phone touches your ear before the proximity sensor had caused the screen to go blank again, so whatever your ear touches, can become an actual user command, even though unintentional. Unfortunately the Airplane Mode is one of the first selectable options on the Action Bar. You might sometimes notice that Bluetooth, Sound or Mobile Data gets toggle also; at least that does not cause you the dropped call. The problem gets worse when you walk or move around or fidget a lot while talking.

THIS HELPS: manually turn the screen off (press the power button) after you answer the call. Because you deliberately power off the screen, the proximity sensor is bypassed. The job of the proximity sensor is to turn on/off the screen to save battery (the reason of course that when the phone is against your ear, you cannot possibly also look at the screen, hence the proximity sensor turns it off for you). You will soon get in the habit.

Everything is working fine except the ear piece

The other post refers to the process that allows you to use speaker only, instead of automatically selecting earpiece. Unfortunately, this will not resolve your issue, as it appears that your earpiece has a loose connection and must be repaired, or you can continue to use speakerphone, bluetooth (if capable), or wired headset.
