    Is there a way for the phone to automatically unlock when you receive an incoming call?

    I didn't think you had to use the pattern just to answer the phone. I believe you just slide the lock.

    Am I right or wrong on this people, I don't use the lock pattern so I'm not certain?

    I use the pattern lock on my phone. When i have an incoming call, i just simply grab the slider and slide it to the right and it answers the call. Ive never had it lag or be slow/dysfunctional enough to actually miss a call. Are any other apps/ touch functions effected ? do you have a screen protector on the phone ?

    I have a hard time making that slider slide just right as well. Lately I have been trying to slowly drag it to the right until it hits the little green light, it works 50% of the time the rest of the calls go to voicemail. Others have no problem answering my phone, just me.

    I'm having the same problem. I do not have a screen protector on my phone either. I bought My Lock and when someone calls me, I still have to use the slider. I have to make myself slide it slowly but a lot of times I have to try more than once. I hate that in this phone. I wish you could just tap a button on the screen to answer.

    answer phone

    That my problem. The app works generally but not for the phone answering bit. It really s----. Between that and the fact Wifi won't work generally I just might lose this thing.

    It's extreme, but this app should work: AutoAnswer -- you can make it so only auto answers starred contacts, contacts in general, or anyone: AutoAnswer v1.0 Application for Android | Communication

    The myLock developer is working on a way to allow answering with just a button press, too.

    For what it's worth, I was able to fix this problem in my circumstance (Moto DROID).

    I believe the lag time in answering the phone was due to my rooting and underclocking. I had the DROID set up to run at a fixed 250 MHz when the screen was off to save battery life (via profiles in SetCPU). Since the screen is off when the phone call first comes in, the phone has to operate at 250 MHz while handling the phone call, waking up, turning on the screen, disabling screen lock, etc. All that is a lot for an underclocked machine, and as a result I didn't even see the answer slider until 1-3 rings in, and after that it was dicey as to whether I'd get it to slide in time to get the call.

    The solution in my case was to disable that profile, so that the phone does not run at a fixed 250 MHz when the screen is off. My phone still has underclocking on demand, so most of the time I'm still running at 250 MHz and saving battery life, I'm just not ~forcing~ it to anymore.

    The result is snappy call answering with no auto answer or screen lock apps! For even more improvement, lower the SetCPU UP threshold. But be careful - set it too low and you'll start burning some serious battery.

    Hope that helps someone,
