    As the title, just in bed while surfing the net on my black 5 and noticed the proximity sensor is 'on' faintly. Siri's raise to speak is off so don't know why it's glaring at me! Anyone else experiencing the same thing? It doesn't seem to be affecting battery life, but never has this with my 4.

    Me too. I have noticed the same thing. There a little red light near the proximity sensor. It can only be seen in the dark. Any ideas? Never seen it on my old iPhone 4

    It's becoming "Self Aware" and it's the start of SkyNet.

    Judgement Day is coming....

    Same problem!

    My black iphone 5 has the proximity sensor always on! even if siri is completeley deactivated- It only turns off when put in sleep mode.
