    CallLock is a tweak that locks your iPhone screen during a call. It can be enabled either manually or automatically and will prevent you from accidentally pressing buttons that could dial, mute, hold, or hangup a call by mistake. This is especially useful for people who have a faulty proximity sensor in their iPhone 4.


    CallLock will override the default action of the Power button during a call to lock the screen instead of the normal end call action.


    CallLock will automatically lock your screen as soon as a incoming or outgoing call is connected.

    CallLock is enabled in manual mode by default. To enable CallLock automatically you must turn on the feature from inside your Settings app. No new icons will be added to your home screen.

    Available on cydia for only $0.99. I just purchased mine.. it works beautifully.

    Credit goes to BigBoss.

    Can I please ask you to do an experiment :)? Can you please take or make a call. It automatically puts you on lockscreen or only if you get it to your ear? If you unlock it, to say watch your calendar, will it lock itself afterwards if you keep talking?

    It does not use the proximity sensor to lock your phone automatically...

    It has two modes, auto mode automatically locks it when a call is dialed or received, you can unlock it and go do something else, but then you will have to lock it again manually afterward using the power button.

    If you choose manual mode, you will have to press the power button to lock the screen. and of course you can unlock and lock it again repeatedly.

    Update Version

    I just installed CallLock. There is a new version out and now it will activate by the proximity sensor when you put the phone up to your ear.

    If you need to access your calendar, web, etc., during the call, you just "slide to unlock" and go about your business. When you put the phone back up to your ear, the screen locks again.

    It seems to work perfectly. Thank god someone came out with a solution to this really annoying problem!!

    Well, when I press the sleep button and I'm not using headphones, the call hangs up. So for me the $0.99 was well spent.

    Why would I want to hang up the call?

    Great app, must have if you have an i4 with prox issues.
    Love the prox sensor automatic lock feature.
