    Whenever I place my finger on/near the front camera on my iPhone 5, the screen turns off?
    I am assuming this is something to do with the OS thinking I have placed the phone up to my ear, perhaps to record a voice message, but is there any way of disabling this?

    It's annoying when, for example, I am looking at a photo I was sent and holding the phone landscape, the screen goes black.

    This is very annoying. Need a way to disable it. If I want to record a message, I'll hold the mic icon down and speak...
