Phone mutes while I'm talking

Sometimes when phone is security locked and you answer a call your phone gives you access to call screen until you put it to your ear (and the phone blanks screen because it's at your ear). If you accidently hit the mute button with your face before the screen turns off you will mute yourself. This happens to me sometimes and when i pull the phone away from my ear the phone display lights up but the phone is on lock so i have to put in pin to unlock screen and unmute myself

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.

How to activate the front camera on the pantech ease?

I also thought the Pantech Ease had a front camera but what has been call a front facing camera by some is actually a sensor that detects when you have the phone up to your ear.

The sensor is that small round hole you see under the glass just to the left of the ATT logo and the ear speaker. Try making a phone call to your voice mail. You may not have noticed that the screen goes black when you place the phone next to your ear during a call. (this helps save battery life) During the phone call take the phone away from your ear an in 1 or 2 seconds the screen will come back on with menu options for features you can use during a call.

Now test the sensor by placing your finger tip over the sensor hole. The screen will instantly go blank. Remove your finger and the screen comes back on. Put your finger on the glass to the Right side of the ATT logo and the screen will stay on because that hole on the Left side is the sensor.

Like I said before, some sources describe that sensor as a camera which is only half true. Unfortunately I was also fooled by this misinformation. I was hoping to have a front facing camera to use with Skype. I was a fool to believe their hype.

When i put my htc desire to my ear the screen goes off.but i can still talk@when ive finishes I have to take bat out to turn back on

there is a sensor which is programmed to save power when it is not required because it has a big screen which uses as much power. there is a malfunction in the sensor first try factory reset if not get it to a service centre and ask for the sensor to be changed

Screen turns black after making a call

Sorry to say this,This phone is named for this bug.This is a bug which is present in Samsung Memoir...The light sensor and the proximity sensor is being linked together in this phone.These two sensor works together based on their sensitivity.

But we can still solve this issue but it does not give 100% success to all.You have to change the proximity sensor settings in the phone.The proximity sensor is being located near the top of the phone where you keep the ear.Once you take it to the ear the accelerometer will detect the change in phone and the phone detects when it is in calling state and turns on the proximity sensor to detect it..So when you take it to ear or your body.the phone keypad will get locked and to save the battery the lights will get off.

Steps to increase the proximity sensor settings:
Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Dial ##77647269700 or try this #77647269700
It will ask for service code:Six zeros type '000000'
Now scroll down to field test and get into proximity call.
Take the palm or finger and show i near the holes 1/2 or 2 inch
away and press yes
Show it until you hear sound and say successful message.
Do this until your proximity detection less.

Hope this will solve it.If still problem persist take it to nearest service center.and ask him for the proximity settings.

Please do rate the solution if the issue is
resolved or post a comment for further

thank you for using fixya have a nice day:-)

Screen does not light up for code entry

the LG Env Touch Turns it's screen on by motion activation, when you hold it up to your ear, it turns itself off
when you put it in front of you it turns back on
maybe there is something wrong with the tilt in your phone
i have the LG EnV Touch and it is a great phone
maybe you could of dropped it and it wasnt working right now with that feature
