I am also hanging up on people and invoking facetime do to the proximity sensor, however i have found if i simply click the home button and exit out of the main call interface, the call stays active and I do not have the same proximity sensor issues, not a real fix, but it beats hanging up on people!

That is a great band aid fix. Thanks for the idea. I will start doing that and hope they come out with a real fix soon.

I've also been having this issue (it's not frequent) but I find that using the headphones and powering off the screen and putting it in my pocket also works.

it's a temporary fix while I wait for an update because I don't want to take my phone into apple since my phone is perfect in every other sense (no dead pixels, no dust under the screen, nothing is cracked and the camera is perfect and no Antenna issue no matter how hard I grip it)
