Yet another iPhone 4 problem?

First it was the pre-order problems; then yellow spots on the screen; then the too-easily-shatterable back; then the reception problems. Now the increasingly troubled iPhone 4 launch may have hit another technical glitch: a hyperactive proximity sensor.

The sensor is used to turn off the touchscreen when a user is holding the phone up to their face. Now, though, people's faces are disconnecting calls, pressing speakerphone, and all sorts of things only their fingers should be doing.

No word yet on whether Apple are acknowledging a problem, or whether it's fixable through a software update.

Have you got an iPhone 4? Are you experiencing any problems? Let us know in the comments.
