    We have Verizon just got two iPhone 4s ( they were free). Anyway she got a call today and the screen won't darken. Called Apple they want to replace it. Well fix it. My thing is her phone is white. We have griffin cases on them I took her case off it works fine. I thought it may have been the color if the case reflecting on the phone or some weird crap tried mine on it same thing won't work? Any ideas?

    The case may be causing the sensor to fail. Rare but possible. You may want to try a hard restart and put it back in the case and try again.

    Take the case off. Get a black permanent marker and color in the frames around the front top lens. I have an older otterbox that did the same thing. I colored the frame surrounding the light sensor lens and problem was solved.
