    i just got a phone call and my screen showed the name of the caller but that was it. there was no choice to answer the phone. has this happened to anyone? do i have a defective phone?
    i think i might know what the problem is. i was using handcent while i got the call. would handcent do that?

    I don't use handcent personally, but I don't think it should do that. I'm pretty sure an incoming call is always supposed to take priority over anything you're doing and bring up the answer ignore screen. What apps do you have installed? Is this the first time your phone has done this? Which apps have you installed most recently?

    Hmmm I don't recall running across anyone having any similar type problems associated with any of those apps. I'd say wait and see if it happens again. If it continues to happen, uninstall your apps and see if it works normally. Then you can reinstall them 1 by 1 to try and pinpoint which one is causing the issue. But as beneharris said, may have just been a 1 time glitch based on the uniqe set of stuff that was going on on the phone at that exact moment.

    I just wanted to say that my phone actually did this once about two days after I got it.. and I was texting also with the stock messenger and I was thinking great a faulty phone but then it has never done it again... "knock on wood"
