    Make sure you try a call that is longer than a minute. I made a few short calls earlier in the day and didn't notice anything, but I just made a 10 minute call and had it go to mute 3 times and speaker once.

    Your thread title is asking for a double negative. It's a little confusing.

    Yes, it does not work?

    No, it does not work?

    Regardless, this is a really worrisome issue.

    I can't tell really. It's not in my proximity. As in, it's still sitting in a box somewhere not in my possession.

    Something you may want to add on there, is options for Yes, it is malfunctioning and I did a restore from a backup. Or No, it is not malfunctioning and I did a restore from a backup. It seems that people who restore from a backup are having issues.

    Yes mine is not working. And I have never restored from a backup before so that's not the issue. I'll be going into the apple store in October and exchanging my phone. 4.1 doesn't fix the proximity sensor issue and I'm part of the believers something will happen in October, hopefully.

    it's not a black and white issue.

    Mine works most of the time, but sometimes it doesn't.

    Put it this way, I used my iPhone 3G for 2 years and not once did I ever face dial, mute, FaceTime, or speaker phone anyone. And I have to say ever since I've had the iPhone 4, I've done each one of those things atlases a handful. It's rather annoying to me and I will get it fixed by getting a new replacement. 4.1 doesn't seem to fix it and I've read that the newest replacements have fixed it. Also I'll wait until October to see if the antenna issues are fixed as well.

    Nope. I stated I never hit FaceTime on my 3G :) which is true because the option isn't available :p

    Just a newbie trying to up his post count.

    I don't have a 4, but the three that I have used all work fine and have since day one.

    Which is why I'll be exchanging mine in October and hopefully a secret new design is out.

    Both mine and my gf's iPhone proximity sensors work fine. She did accidentally hit mute once when she had the phone propped between her shoulder and face, but that would be understandable when you're shuffling the phone around like that.

    Actually, it is. The white iPhone doesn't seem to have these problems

    Yes, mine is malfunctioning and it drives me nuts sometimes.
    Hope 4.1 takes care of it from the reports I heard so far.

    Up until two days ago when I installed 4.1 I was hanging up on every call, putting them on loud-speaker, face-timing them.

    Since installing I haven't had one single problem. Finally I have a phone I can use as a phone and I'm a happy bunny!

    no chance, no new design could be secret as has to be in with the FCC, which would be leaked quicker than a man with the craps. plus why make a new design for october when they're busy on iPhone 5 to release in June?
