Same problem, and it's not the proximity sensor either. I have scoured the internet and seen others complaining about this, but not one person seems to know the answer.
It is very annoying when during the middle of a call this keytone sound blairs out all sound.
Anyway, it would be great if anyone on the planet has the knowledge and exact cause of this issue.

My case with all the notes (6 months worth) has been submitted according to Apple Engineering.
I would suggest anyone with this issue call Apple support, and ask for assistance from senior level support to submit a problem to engineering. Also, submit a feedback request here: http://www.apple.com/feedback
Ask to title your request "Keytone sound during call".
Last, make sure when you call Apple you are ready to run through the diagnostics they will want you to do.
1. Back up your phone first either through iTunes or iCloud.
2. Restore your Phone.
3. If you are on iOS7, make sure it's the latest version.
-- If you are on iOS6, the last version at this time is iOS 6.1.4
4. Be prepared to do that either prior to the call or during.
5. Ask for your case to be submitted to Engineering and to have a call back to resolve.
Hopefully if we all band together, they will find the issue and we can get our hearing back after the numbing keytone has been blasted in our ears enough times.
Please share your expierences here, but also note that other threads exist on this forum as well for the exact same problem!!
And many more!
... And on almost ALL the carrier forums for support as well. If we all ask for help, and not just complain here, we should get a meaningful response and hopefully a fix! Post up here when your case is in with Apple support.

I have a 4S on Sprint and also having the same issues. Driving me batty! I contacted Sprint they stated it was an iOS issue and that it may repair itself on the next update.. That was 2 updates ago.. So very aggrivating. Wish someone would have a resolution.

I am having the same problem -- beeping while on a phone call. It reminds me of when we had land lines and someone would pick up and start to dial without realizing someone was on the phone already. Very aggravating. It is not my sensor either. Checked that. Will send a request to Apple as well.
iPhone 5 Sprint

Yeah, Sprint is full of valuable advice like that.
What's amazing is Apple cant explain this issue. No one can apparently. It's an unexplained phenomena like Big Foot, UFO's and J'Lo's badunkydunk.
So to clarify.....
Apple has no answer.
AT&T has no answer.
Sprint has no answer.
Verizon has no answer.
Maybe we should call SETI as our phones seem to be phoning home....

I've been having this issue as well since I got my iPhone 5 back in Oct 2012. I also recently got a new iphone 5 back in early Jan 2014 and it's still having this issue.
I will be talking to my fiancee and all of a sudden I hear what sounds like someone pressing down on one of the numbers. It's so loud and surprises me. My fiancee says she didn't hear anything.
This is such an annoying issue.

I think this is actually a Sprint problem and not an Apple problem. My friend has a Galaxy phone on the Sprint network and it does the same thing. Trying to contact Sprint to see what they have to say about it.

I have AT&T and I hear it all the time ... Still just as often as when I created this topic back in September. Now, however I have upgraded to the iphone 5S, and it's the exact same. It's so strange!

I have the same problem with my iPhone4. I don't hear the beep but the caller on the other end hears it. I am not hitting the keypad as it is not even open.
I have AT&T. Seems to happen when talking to person using a Samsung Galaxy 3 using AT&T network.
If anyone has any solutions, please let us know. Thank you.
