    As most I wanna protect the iphone screen so I put on one of those clear screen protectors, but when i'm on a call and have the phone next to my face it goes blank like it's supposed to, but when I'm ready to hang up and take the phone away, it doesn't wake back up because it senses the film and thinks it's still by my face. So I end up waiting 5 seconds or so and hit the wake/silent button and it goes back to the locked home screen....anyone else with this problem cause it's kinda annoying.

    are you sure it's the film on the screen? maybe you could try taking the film off and making a phone call to verify this. i have a film on my phone, and the screen lights up when i take the phone away from my face without issues.

    for reference, i use power support's crystal film set.

    Though I personally don't believe it needs a protector, you could cut off the top 1/4" or so and see if that helps (the IR sensor is near the top).

    If it really is because of the film on the screen, then I can't say that its a big problem. Maybe look into the type of film siurpeeman uses(if it is different, and it is the source of the problem)

    But putting things on the screen, you can't expect Apple to plan around that. (although I guess the company who makes the film could have tried harder)

    I don't believe this is accurate for two reasons.
    1. The screen turns off because of its orientation.
    try holding it more horizontal to turn the screen back on.

    2. Screen protectors don't register as a touch. Much like gloves
    gloves don't work either.
    I have used screen protectors without problem.

    Thats wrong the accelerometer has nothing to do with why the display turns off its the proximity sensor, while on a call put your finger over the top of the display while its on a table and it will still go off.

    why make a comment like that when you don't know what you are talking about?

    the proximity sensor bounces back signals to see if it is near your face. the screen protector may be bouncing back the signals.
