    Recently I learned that with Google's update of Android to 2.3, the api no longer has access to answer calls, which sucks.

    What I am wondering is with Root access could an app bypass this and have the ability to answer a call?

    My long time favorite call blocking app, Afirewall, has been greatly effected by this and this is the reason I am asking.


    Thanks for the help,

    Travis

    I did have a had a problem receiving calls. My wife tried calling me the other night and my phone sent her right to voicemail. Didn't ring and I had no clue she was trying to call.

    Their replies are typical of the type of "answers" you get on this forum nowadays when you ask a question which is why I don't even bother anymore.

    From what I understand it doesn't work anymore, I hear complaints about it all the time.

    Ok, sorry for making light of your situation, have you tried "call control" it's a free app in the market has excellent 5 star reviews that are current. I just downloaded it myself today, after someone in canada called me
