CallLock fixes proximity sensor bug [Jailbreak]

CallLock is a new tweak available for Jailbroken iPhones that does exactly what it says -- it locks your phone once an incomming or an outgoing call is connected. If you are like me and your iPhone 4 is still having proximity sensor issues issues then this will prevent you from ever face dialing, muting and ending calls ever again.

The setup is also simple. Once you have it installed just go into Settings and you will find CallLock. Select it and you have two options: Manually Lock and Automatically Lock. Manual lock allows you to press the lock button to lock your phone without ending the call. Automatic lock will lock your phone once your call is connected, no button press needed.

To download this tweak visit the Cydia store and simply search for CallLock. It is currently available and it is only $0.99.

If you have an iPhone 4 with proximity sensor issues and decide to try CallLock out, leave us a comment let us know how it works for you!

CallLock fixes proximity sensor bug [Jailbreak]


If your phone still has proximity problems, go to Apple, say it has proximity problems, and they'll give you a new iPhone 4. They did that with mine.

Yeah, I am on my 3rd IPhone 4 and the proximity sensor is still an issue. Apple needs to do the RIGHT thing and recall these POS phones they put out. The cost of gas and wasted time isn't worth the trip to the Apple Store. Apple dropped the ball on this one BIG TIME.

I have the exact opposite problem with prox sensor. When the sensor locks the screen it won't come back on. Can this help that? 3GS - IOS 4.1. never been dropped

I installed this program on my iPhone 4 IOS 4.1 yesterday to test it out before putting this on my wife's identical phone.
It would not lock the phone, when set to manual or automatic. All it ever did was have a box pop up after answering a phone call that said "WARNING" with a spot to click OKAY to close. Waste of a buck if you ask me! Frankly, I am getting sick and tired of these paid apps or tweaks that do not work or do what they claim! No wonder why so many people resort to downloading cracked apps! If the app sucks, DO NOT EXPECT TO BE PAID!!!!

UPDATE: This app was updated today to version 1.02 and it works correctly now when I set it to auto lock. It locks a few seconds after you make/receive a call.

This tweak works great and the developer is great at giving support. After installing reboot the phone and it will work flawlessly.

Didn’t work for me. I’m on 4.1 and using lockinfo. When this activates I think lockinfo causes the call to be ended. Good idea but I imagine alot of people are using some sort of lockscreen.

Guess I've been fortunate enough to not have a sensor issue. My friend still on 4.0.1 however does, guess I'll recommend this.

I been having too many issues with proximity sensor replaced phones 3 times. Still no good. Sick of running to apple store and wasting time every few weeks. So thank god for this CallLock, luv it works as advertised.

I have iPhone 4 (7.1.2) and cannot make a purchase in Cydia since it says that the app (1.3 at the moment) maybe not compatible with my phone. How to contact developer?
