Hi,

My 3G is driving me mental.

I make a call, screen goes blank, call continues, call ends.

Screen stays blank, no functionality at all! It wakes up between 2-5 minutes later, no probs at all, until I make another call.

This sometimes happens when recieving calls, but not coinsistently.

All other functions work fine.

On Optus Safari.

Help, anyone....

Restore your iPhone with iTunes.
If that doesn't solve it, could be a hardware fault, so seeing as you're in Adelaide, give Apple a call and they'll arrange a way to get a replacement to you.

Have you got a case on your iPhone that is blocking the proximity sensor?

it wouldnt matter if he had it covered, as it is still doing it after the call ends.

YES.

This all started when I put the case on.

Where is the proximity sensor!!??

On the front next to the earpiece.

Not so,

The screen goes blank when the proximity sensor is covered after there has been a certain accelerometer movement.

It will then wait until the sensor is uncovered and the phone is lowered from your ear to show the screen again.

Since the cover is over the sensor, the phone goes blank when it is raised to the ear, however it won't "wake up" until the sensor is uncovered.
