Screen lock during calls????

I have been trying to find this out from every reviewer of the phone and am unable to get a straight answer. I know that there is NO proximity sensor on the phone, but there is a light sensor to control brightness, this is not what I am talking about.

Can you answer that for me please???? Mobiletechreview says it dims for whatever preset time you have on the phone, but she didn't tell me whether this would happen during a call, even when I asked explicitly.
