Ok I have it! This drove me nuts! The key is "no overides " Which I have no idea what it really means. And I'm not sure which of several I set to " no overides" is actually the solution. But I got what I wanted and stopped! I had been clicking buttons and using my wife's phone to call mine for 30 minutes. I desired the phone to vibrate when it rang but NOT do that notify thing when u were talking.

Menu < settings< profiles< (select desired profile) > phone > settings:
Notifications (no overides)
Ring mode (no overides)
Vibrate mode (no overides)

Gosh this drove me nuts. One thing on an AWESOME mod! Now its ALL awesome!

My phone does vibrate during a call, but I noticed my screen, even when I'm talking, the sensor just seems to be off because my screen just flashes on and off and on and off and on and off.

Is there any way to recalibrate the PSensor or something? I've heard of something called "Proximity Recover" being used to fix this problem in the ZTE phone forums. What is that? Is it an app, because it's not in the market.

I was trying lots of solutions I was seeing seeing from my searches, but nothing seemed to work for me.  But then, thanks to Jay Barr's post above, I suspected the profiles.  I can't say I did a proper experiment because I did change a few things at the same time and so I don't know exactly what fixed it, but I thought I'd post here.

- I ended up simply deleting all my profiles and creating a couple new ones.
- I also played with the "Settings->Sound->Vibrate" and "Silent Mode" options, but I can't tell you exactly what I changed to/from because I don't remember what they were set to.

Hope this helps someone who was just as frustrated as I was!
Now onto figuring out how to get visual voicemail working...

I was wrong.  I think that it was only working because my phone may have been in silent mode.  Or maybe there was a regression and the problem came back.  Anyway... still looking for a solution and I'll try to remember to update this if/when I find one.
