If what I understand is happening, the answer is no.

Apple (and I expect of smart phone OSs) "know" when the phone is next to your ear. Since the screen is the largest single power drain on a cell phone, when the phone is at your ear, the screen is off. This function is not going to go away. One option if you really can't do any thing else is increase your power drain rate even more -- change to a speaker phone.
