This is not a normal function of the iPhone. There is no setting or nothing your doing wrong.
To be honest these are the solutions that may or may not work.
First thing I would try is rebooting the phone by holding the sleep/wake button and home button for 15 seconds until you see the white apple logo.
If that doesn't work I would restore from backup. If that doesn't work I would restore as new. If all else fails take it to your closest apple store they may replace the phone for a working one..
I was suspecting the case. I have an Otter. Really, with my tendency to destroy things in my pocket, there is no other option. I'm guessing the case is setting off the proximity sensor.
I wish there were a way to turn the proximity sensor off. For the moment, I may have to resort to taking the case off for those types of calls. That's not an easy task with an Otter.
