    coolest .328 feature my gf found i bet you didnt know about.

    So were sitting here and she explains to me how when she takes her phone away from her to look at the screen or hit a button for an auto mated system before you even touch the screen it lights up. when you put it back up to your ear the screen goes dark again AND it locks. it looks like this new update fixed the issue with hitting buttons with your cheek and best of all you dont need any 3rd party app for it.:aargh4:

    BTW i had the free screen lock on my phone from nanna boat and this feature wasnt working but screen lock was interfering with it and you have to make sure you hold the phone pretty flat against your face but way to go with this new feature.

    I believe that's the proximity sensor.

    yea it is but i never noticed mine working like this. it actually locks the screen so you dont hit buttons by accident now. i think i read the storm 2 was going to have this feature but i didnt realize it does it on the storm 1 now also.

    all i did was removed screenlock cause it worked on hers and not mine. after my phone rebooted i called her and put it to my face and at first it didnt work until i put it flat against my face and sure enough my screen goes black and i tried clicking it with my cheek and it stayed dark. no more hitting mute or flash by accident. also when you take it from your face to check the time or what ever it automatically lights up for you so you dont have to click anything. pretty nifty.

    I 1st noticed that on 1 of the previous 5.0 leaks. I was on a call and took the phone away from my face and the screen was dark but the function buttons were lit.

    I miss the .140 call screen. when you were in a call all of the screen options hide. There was nothing to select on the screen unless you showed the keyboard.

    Well, well, well. I hadn't noticed because I was using Patternlock. Very smart move on RIM's part.
