    From Crackberry.com,

    "Face Detection feature! - Last, but certainly not least, the BlackBerry Storm2 features a proximity sensor that powers down the display when the phone is next to your ear on a call. Earlier hardware/software versions we have seen of the Storm2 never possessed this feature, but this review unit certainly does. Simply start talking with the BlackBerry Storm2 against your ear and the screen powers down - no more ear typing! As soon as you pull the phone away from your ear the screen powers on and you can enable calling features (mute, speakerphone, etc.). Finally!"


    Mine does not do this. I wonder if I have a bad unit?

    You guys are correct. I set my screen to dim to a longer time and now it turns on and off.


    Thank you

    My Storm 2 is back to its old tricks. No Proximity detection. I give up.

    Do you think it could be a bad restore from my Storm 1?

    I do not want to take this thing back and switch out another handheld. That is a nightmare with all my emails and apps.

    It could be.. I didnt even go as far as mepascal went.. I only restored what I needed from an advanced restore... ie contacts thats it and a couple of simple other things, sounds and profiles.. and then reset everything else like it was brand new.. I even redownloaded all of my apps fresh.

    Nepperz did the best choice... If painproducer and MeNeep still have settings for apps lingering that didn't work... That will corrupt your OS!

    Proximity Sensor

    I have found that the proximity sensor works when you are on a call, but it depends how you hold the phone.

    To test, if you make a call for example to voicemail and then gently place your finger across the top third of the screen (without pressing down) for a second or or more, the screen will turn off. If you then lift your finger the screen will come back on.
    So I guess when you are on a call you must make sure the phone is placed so that part of your face will rest against part of the top third of the screen.
