    It never fades to black like the 2G/3G do. It stays active when against my face, which ends up calling people, hanging up, or going to speakerphone.

    Anyone else have this problem with 3GS / 3.0?

    well basically it sounds like your proximity sensor is not working.
    Have u tried to restart the phone and then manually covering up the sensor?
    (it's left on the left part next to the speaker)
