Petition for developers to LOCK SCREENS DURING A CALL

As we all know, we cannot lock the screen while we talk. Not only drains battery, but also renders "handsfree" handsets completely USELESS. Why? The screen is still on while we talk and the touch screen reacts to all kind of touch and bumps.

Will on another thread commented that there were no updates for the locking screen, yet he said that they wont allow 3rd party apps to run in the background for battery concerns, however, no lock screen support is quite ironic, because turning off the screen while we talk SAVES battery.

Now, sign if you agree to make this update....in any upcoming MR... It worked once with the keyboard, hopefully it will work again.

And to quote AKIPIKA:

I WANT TO LOCK THE SCREEN WHEN ON A CALL!!!!!!!!!!!

P.S. Sorry if this has been done before, and please point it out if it has been done!

P.S.S. CALLING SPRINT COSTUMER SUPPORT WILL LOCK THE SCREEN!

Sounds like a good idea, however, I doubt that it would make it into MR5. I would imagine that the content/fixes for that update would be pretty well set at this time and in more of a testing phase. Just trying to be realistic.

Ironic isn't the word for it... I think it's another kind of "ronic".

Oh, and.... Agreed.

Agreed - I can't stand answering the phone with my bluetooth headset while the phone is in my holster and having it cancel the bluetooth headset because it got bumped.
