When I used to make phone calls, the screen would go black when it approached my ear, and now it doesn't anymore, making me hit buttons and things when i don't want to. For example, I am always hitting the mute button. It has nothing to do with my case because I don't have one. Any idea's how I can fix this problem?
There may be a problem with the proximity sensor. To troubleshoot this you'll have to:Create a backupImport your camera roll photos and/or videos to your computerRestore your iPhone as new
After you've restored your phone, when prompted selest "Set Up as New iPhone" and then make a few calls. If the display still won't go blank the proximity sensor is malfunctioning and you'll need to get it repaired. If the display does go blank then it's a software glitch, so if you restore the phone to your backup you'll continue to have the same problem.

Before restoring the device, remove any cases or screen protectors on the device to rule that out as the culprit.
