    I don't want to slide to answer a call or unlock phone

    Is there a way around sliding/scrolling on the green button to answer a call or unlock a screen. I want to be able to just push one button to answer it. I was on a call and another call was coming in and I had to put my finger on the green answer button and slide to the right. This is dangerous while driving. Please advise. Thanks

    Just a note:

    Calling while driving is dangerous in any way. so please for the safety of yourself and others...just dont call and drive.

    I dunno how that is in the states, but its forbidden here over in most european countries!

    talking on the phone is illegal in Cali but you can still use your bluetooth which you still have to unlock your phone to answer. i wouldn't mind an app that allows you to answer without sliding just like they made an app for the BB storm that allows you to slide to unlock like the iphone.

    yeah i thought with a bluetooth you can just press the button on the side and it would pick up the call for you.

    My car has built in bluetooth and all I have to do is tap the steering wheel control to answer my calls. Works fine with the Droid. I can even voice dial from the car.

    Yup - I have this in my Camry Hybrid. No phone to hold and all controls on the steering wheel.

    I'm sure someone will come up with an app to answer the phone by hitting the phone icon. Even when not driving, that slide answer thing is a pain.

    It's been a while since this question was asked and I can't find any other info on it, so I'm bumping it.

    Does anyone know of an app or some way around having to drag that slide to answer the phone?? I HATE that slide. When my phone rings, the slide refuses to slide and by the time it does, the caller has usually hung up. I'm hoping something new has come up since this was last replied to.
