    Can't answer call

    Two times I have not been able to swipe the green call answer key to receive a incoming call......and then after several times just tapping on the screen or trying to swipe to answer call, it brings me directly to the home screen and I have no function to pressing any keys / icons.....Both times this happened I had to do a battery pull as even the power down button would not let me choose to turn off the Droid.

    I don't know if this is common or if this is an application that conflicts with the answer call key or whatever else.

    Could it be related to installing LockBot (free)....or even installing Dialer One?

    Anyone experience this problem?

    The following is what I have installed:
    Advanced Task Killer
    Battery Status Pro
    Color Note
    Dialer One
    Handcent SMS
    LockBot (free)
    Meebo IM
    Profiles
    Pandora
    Pro Paint Camera
    Weather Bug
    Quick Tip Calculator

    Try uninstalling LockBot or Dialer One and test it out.

    why get rid of task killer and weather bug as I wouldn't see any of those related to the Droid's dialer/answer function?...or are you saying just get rid of them for disliking the applications?

    tat2 did you find out what was the problem? I have dialer one and the mylock also. I havent uninstalled either on but I have disabled the mylock with no sucess. Have you uninstalled dialer one and tried it?

    I'm going to guess LockBot causes the problem. I have a good portion of the apps you have (including Dialer One and myLock), plus a bunch more, and haven't had any problems like this. (I don't have ATK, but have used it in the past... and I don't have Meebo, Battery Status Pro, Color Note, or Quick Tip Calculator.... but none of those four seem like they would affect call answering.)

    from the list of apps in my original post, I have gotten rid of the advance task killer, battery status pro, and weather bug (switched that to beautiful widgets).....and since then I have not had any problems where I can't answer a call. However when I did the recent update to 2.1 version, I had one time where I couldn't answer the call.

    I still have the Lock Bot (free) and also Dialer One and the run on my phone daily causing no problems.

    Every other app that I originally mentioned is also still on my phone with no problems other than those that I mentioned that I removed.
