    I'm pretty sure that film would prevent the proximity sensor from working properly. When you remove the original, is there a film on that?

    You may be right , but that's the problem , I can't confirm if there is really a film blocking the grille holes . When I did the conversion , I didn't take notice of anything that would interfere with the proximity sensor, but now that I have this problem ,I should of checked , I don't want to disassemble the phone until I'm sure there is one .

    Only reason I think there is one is because I was googling pics of the backside of the LCD and notice a blue film or tape over the grille , help please:confused:

    As a Apple Certified Mac Tech, I know that on alot of the repair parts that would come in, they put a protective film on certain areas to protect it while shipping. For example, on the bezel of the MacBooks, there's either a blue film or clear film over the camera hole that needs to be removed prior to installation. This may be the same thing.
