    It appears to have fixed the proximity sensor on my wife's phone.

    My proximity sensor seems to be better. It appears to be activating about a half to three quarters an inch further away than before.

    I remain skeptical and will report whether I have any improvement on actual calls. It does not appear in the release notes that they did anything with the proximity sensor which is why I'm afraid that this is wishful thinking on my part. We'll see.

    You may as well have asked if 4.0.1 helped your mortgage interest rate. Seeing as how apple hasn't even officially acknowledged the prox sensor issue, and made no mention of it in the 4.0.1 release notes, my guess is that anyone who thinks 4.0.1 fixed it is merely enjoying the effects of a reboot.

    Per the release notes, 4.0.1 had nothing to do with the proximity sensor so if anything is different then it's a placebo effect. Also since Steve Jobs stated they have acknowledged the issue and will have a software update fix coming shortly just adds to the fact that 4.0.1 did nothing for that problem.
