I never had the proximity problem. I updated and love what apple has done with it. Well this morning I was on hold(important phone call) and the lady finally answered after 20min of wait time, and I say hello. She then replies hello,hello sir are you their? I muted the phone and it never left my ear. Lol. But she stayed on long enough for me to un mute. I just thought it was funny but if she would have hung up I might have been mad. Just thought I'd share that little story with you all.
