    I was wondering if anyone knew of a Cydia fix for the Proximity sensor for 4.0.1 because it's killing me!

    Can I ask are you using a screen protector ?

    I discovered I started having the proximity issue for the first time on one last night, I have used a few handsets now...the thing is it only happened when using a screen protector, it was fine again when I took the protector off and also when I used a different screen protector with a hole over where the sensor is...

    Could this be the issue..

    Or a case which is incorrectly made and interfering with the sensor.

    I was having the issue with the sensor until I put my phone in one of the new Otter-box Defender cases. No I have no problems at all.

    take it apple if you can theywill test your phone to see if it's in specs. strong rumors out there the next firmware version will improve it. even the Apple Genus when I was there mentioned it. Not even saying they have inside info just that Apple is well aware. As mentioned allot has to do with case choice. also the sensor is allot more sensitive then previous models. Oh and Dev-team has a couple exploits in there pockets to use on real firmware upgrades not Apples junk upgrades.
