    I noticed a bug where the icons to swipe for incoming calls while in landscape are not in the correct orientation. Can someone confirm this?

    Just got the update early this morning and haven't gotten a call yet. I tend to have the phone in portrait when a call comes in anyway...

    Can you still answer/ignore calls that way?

    I had this happen to me a couple times before the update, so it seems more like a bug they didn't fix. Interestingly, even after I switched back to portrait mode, the icons were still showing the same wrong directions until I restarted my Droid.

    Yes you can still answer, it is just a matter of a aesthetics.

    Do you touch the "red" phone image to ignore the call? Also; when I place a call the screen sometimes stays black even when i pull it down from my ear such as when you are checking messages and need the heypad or to even end call. Is this a hardware problem? Dana

    You would swipe the 'red' phone image to ignore the call.

    In regards to your screen remaining black, make sure your fingers are no where near the upper left corner of the phone.

    Thanks man! You just saved me a trip to the store. My fat, hot thumb was near that corner. I guess they have it set so your ear shuts it off so buttons don't get activated. If I just wave my fingers near that corner it shuts the screen off. I guess my phone is OK. :)
