My proximity sensor took a dump (I'm pretty sure, phone refuses to kill screen during a call and auto brightness won't work), but I notice today, my "raise to speak" feature for Siri is inop as well. It was stubborn (sometimes you had to raise the phone a few times or jar it a bit) but now it's inop altogether. Is it part of the proximity sensor or is it another piece? Thanks in advance!
Ok, I think I figured it out. My motion sensors are working, as verified by my compass. But, since my proximity sensor isn't working now, the "Raise to Speak" feature needs that to activate. It has to detect that your ear is near the phone to lock the screen and activate Siri.
Don't you just love self-service help? :) If there's anything else we can do for you don't hesitate! :D Glad you got it figured out.
