My daughters phone screen does not shut off during a call, when she's holding it to her ear, is there a fix for this? Thx in advance.

There is a proximity sensor under the glass near the speaker. Does your daughter have any sort of a case, cover or screen protector on the phone currently that could be blocking the sensor?

Don't know if it will work, but it won't hurt.... Try doing a hard reset/reboot. Pess both home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo. No data will be lost, this is just a complete shut down of the device and restart.
If you have an Apple store nearby, you may want to schedule an appointment with a Genius so they can run diagnostics on it.
