Awesome! I could have long dead and gone and still not figure this problem. Kudos to you. I have replaced this phone with a new iPhone 5s principally because of sound / voice issues. Went to trade it in for next ipad mini retina 16gb and was told the dealer will not buy the phone since the proximity sensor is bust. Can now do the trade. Thanks a ton!

Hi,

i also had the issue. I was using screen guard. i think that caused the issue. after calibration the problem was solved.

Mine is NOT resolve. I get the following error message when calibrating my Xperia Z:

Failed(timeout) Please retry. Or your phone may not support this function Error Code m= -98

 

I have already reset it to factory default and done it many times, always with the same error.

 

I HATE THIS PHONE.

I am having this issue as well. My screen will not reactivate until the caller disconnects. TOtally aggravating!! Has anyone had any luck with the ProximitySensor Calibration app? I installed it but it errors out when I try to run it.
