It won't turn off and this causes accidental dialing, accidentally hanging up, accidentally turning on the speaker phone and other ridiculous things. The flickering when the conditions are a little darker are especially annoying because the light becomes bothersome, especially when it is flickering.

If this update has not been able to fix the issue, it is clearly a hardware issue, like the antennae and like I said earlier, AT&T and Apple need to allow disgruntled users to return these defective products. We have been promised all kinds of fixes and the product is still broken.
Ah, got it now. Ya, I wasn't eligible for an upgrade when it came out. Still holding out for next version or revised current edition.

I didn't have the proximity sensor problem before the ios 4.1 update and I still don't have the problem after the update.

They are offering refunds for the phones.

Cool, I'll have to call them up again and see if I can get an exchange for a different product.

My understanding was they were only offering full refunds for items purchased within 30 days.

I pre-ordered before knowing about the plethora of issues.
