Whenever I filp over my N8 on an incoming call it goes into silent mode even though the sensor setting is set to off.
I forced my friend to buy a N8 and this problem was also found in his N8 Grey.
Are nokia developers aware of this?

Mine does exactly the same thing (and I think everyone else's) on firmware PR1.2.
I am quite afraid I can lose incoming calls now.
NOKIA should definitely address this issue.
I wonder why Nokia is still not aware of this issue and why not addressing the problem?
I'm expecting a device update for this otherwise I'm gonna have to sell off my N8.
I'm a biker and bcoz of this issue I cannot recognize an incoming call.

It happened to me again, but I managed to make it work again. It seems when you restart the phone this option stops working properly. So what I did to make it work again is:
1. I ticked the silence calls box, then
2. I restarted the phone,
3. With the ticked box tried calling to see if it worked – it did what it was supposed to do (it silences the calls when I turn the phone over), and
4. Then I un-ticked the box and it started to work properly i.e. it does not silence the calls.
From trial and error, I noticed that step 3 is important!
