    Default Face Detection????

    Mine doesn't seem to be working. I thought this was a built in feature of the Storm 2. Ideas?

    I posted the same question yesterday. I don't think it is working either. One guy said it just locks the screen but mine doesn't do that either. When I think of this it should turn the screen off when close to your face and then turn back on automatically when not. Mine does nothing.

    That's weird, mine does. When I'm on the phone and it's near my face, the screen blacks out immediately. When I pull it away, it comes back on.

    It turns off the click functionality when close to your face and goes dark. You have to click it to turn it back on though. You can't click with your face though which is the whole point or at least you shouldn't be able to!

    Test it by placing a cloth over your finger then try to operate the touch screen. It should be locked and unable to move. Then hold it up to your face and try to click it with your cheek. In the past that would cause problems for Storm 1 users, on the Storm 2 the screen should lock

    My storm two does the face detection just fine. That's weird that it doesn't for some of u. When I put it to my face the screen locks up completly and goes black. When I take it off it goes back to normal.

    I haven't actually out mine close enough to my face yet to rest this out.......BUT I have noticed thsg the screen becomes noticeably stiffer when you have an active call. @ least this has been my experience.

    I thought mine didn't work, and my wife has hung up on countless calls. I wish there were a way to adjust the sensitivity.

    I'm guessing the sensor is in the speaker. When I *really* press it against my ear, the screen cuts off. Maybe for the first few days it's in a 'learning' mode. Now I'm just too hopeful...predictive text is one thing, software that learns the normal pressure you apply to your ear during a conversation is another (-:

    If yours works, post up a picture of your ear. I'd guess those with flatter ears have better luck.

    Totally joking about posting ear pics btw.

    I agree with you. I had to push the phone on my face to see it actually turn black the screen and go stiff. But I dont normally push the phone against my head that hard hahah. No biggie though lol

    Works on my S1 with the new OS. I thought it worked by light sensor (in the LED) and accelerometer, but was told that it is a combination of phone being on a call and the amount of surface area of the screen that is making contact with skin. In other words, in order for the screen to trigger the lock, you have to be on a call and the screen has to be in contact with your face. Nothing to do with your speaker/ear (unless you have huge ears of course).

    I don't think there is a new piece of "proximity sensing" hardware in the S2 since my S1 has it - it's all software generated. As a test, connect a call and lay your hand (without clicking) on the screen.

    I've tried to test this on my phone and it never dims and the screen stays the same when I'm on a call. The good news is that since the click is stiffer its a little harder to press the screen with my face, lol

    This actually does work on my phone. I didn't have the phone close enough to my face before. Screen turns of and on automatically now. If you want a good test make a call then put your hand over the entire phone front. You will see it turn off and back on when you lift your hand off.
