    Hi Deina,


    I've never heard of that problem before, but I can give some advice on troubleshooting it:


    • First of all, check that you have disabled all 'Accessibility settings' (in Settings > General > Accessibility)
    • Try rebooting your phone and see if it still happens


    It might also be an issue of your cheeck touching the button during a call? Is the speaker phone on when answering the call without putting the phone to your ear?

    Thanks for answer. It happens without putting the phone to my ear. I have used a several month and it did not hapens before.

    I did check Accessibility settings. How can I reboot my phone?

    To reset the phone, press the sleep and home button until the Apple logo comes back again.

    Do you have a case around your phone that is covering the proximity sensor? If yes, remove it, to make sure the screen is shut off while taking a call. If the sensor is not working right, you might touch the screen with your cheek and activated the speaker that way.

    I did reset but nothing. Ihave case but it is not covering sensor. I put case already after purchase iphone and it did not happen before. It happening some days.

    To make sure the proximity sensor is working corrrectly, reset all settings in Settings/General/Reset -> Reset all settings.
