When I'm on the phone and I press the sleep/wake button and the screen locks. I can not turn the screen back on for about 10 seconds. I noticed that the first time you press he sleep/wake button it takes you to the call screen and you have to press it again so the screen actually locks.

Also, I got a call earlier and the screen wouldn't show someone was calling but the phone was ringing. Luckily, I could see who was calling on my watch.

Anyone else having screen issues on iOS 10.2??

Just thought I would mention that it seems like this might not be an issue anymore in iOS 10.3 (at least it seemed to work fine for me).

I'm not sure. I believe it was not a bug. Just something Apple put to make sure the phone would not accidentally activated while putting in pocket etc.

It didn't work like that before and now seems to be back to working this way again.
