It seems like this is a new behaviour. Every time I take the phone from my ear, the screen goes dark, and it takes several seconds before I can use either the button on the top or the Home button to get anything back.

Maybe its supposed to be this way, but it's v annoying.

There's a couple sensors on the phone that when its up to your ear it turns the display off to conserve the battery. Once you move it away from your ear it should come back on in a couple seconds at the most. I think while the screen is black, the home and power button are disabled. As long as the screen is coming back after a couple seconds, I wouldn't worry too much.

But it doesn't come back on...

And as I move it from my ear its on, then goes off as I lower it, just as I am trying to see whats going on.
