My G4 is fine.

I wonder what apps you installed. Apps tend to break functionality.

The carrier usually does a full factory reset then sets it up and 99% of the time the phone works again.

It is a proximity sensor issue. I own a cell phone repair company. I just fixed this exact issue on a G3 a couple weeks ago. Debris accumulated between the glass window and the sensor and phone no longer responds to touch once the call engages.
