I'm having two problems with the proximity sensor not working.

I understood that when I hold the phone to my ear, the touch screen should deactivate so as to avoid interrupting the call. My doesn't seem to work as my calls are often switched to speaker by my cheek-pressure. Or I will have annoying touch tones ringing in my ear during the phone call.

Also, when I'm checking a voicemail for work, I listen then press 2 to save, 3 to delete, etc. After listening to a message, I moved the phone away from my ear to press 2 to save and move onto the next message. When I put the phone to my ear, I hear that I've deleted the next message (the 3 key being in the same vicinity as the speaker option makes me believe that again it's my cheek pressing on the phone.)

Any recommendations on how I can lock the screen when I take a call or hold the phone as to not trigger the touch screen?
