    Ok, I like the iPhone that I have but there is one thing that I'm getting really annoyed with...

    When I'm on a call, my ear keeps hitting the 'mute' button.

    Anyone know of any applications that you can put on the phone to stop this from happening? Like a screen lock while on a call and you have to enter your password.

    Anything??

    It's a common problem with the proximity sensor. Take it back to apple and get a replacement...

    If you jailbreak there's an app I think it's call call lock or something like that..it locks your screen when you answer a call

    Really? I have to take it back? Someone tole me to just hit the home button and let it go back to the main screen. I did that but it still goes back to the call screen and the mute button is depressed.

    It's up to you but as I said it's a well known problem so you won't have any trouble getting a replacement...

    tbh i get the same issue, but i often hit the speaker icon = deafened. so i just tend to hold it at more of an angle to my face.

    i found the clear 'gear4' case also helps

    I've had my phone for 4 months and I swear I used to be able to hit the top on/off button to lock a call while active. Now it hangs the call up. What happened?

    You can lock you phone if on loudspeaker. I think it also locks if you are using headseats, either wired or Bluetooth...

    You may have a proximity sensor issue. When a call is made or received on an iPhone & you put it up to your face the screen is supposed to shut off to prevent just that from happening.
    Take it to Apple & explain the situation, either that or you are holding the phone too far away during the call causing it to happen.

    After you answer the call, you can just hit the home button and it will minimize the call screen :)
