How to turn off display during phone call

The hero does not have a proximity senstor to turn off the display when the phone is placed up to your ear. Therefore I want to manually shut the screen off after placing/answering a call. Unfortunately the button to turn off the display is also the end button!

Anybody know how I can turn off the display without ending the call or waiting for the regular screen timeout?

I have my screen set to never go off. But it does while I'm on a call...I thought that was the proximity sensor, I didn't realize it doesn't have one.

You're probably activating the light sensor.  It's not as good as a proximity sensor but the next best thing.

Check out the Screen Suite app.  It can be configured to lock your screen automatically during a call i.e. when you make a call or answer an incoming call
