    I'm late to the dance as I see many of you have had your droids since last year. I have a simple question. Can someone please direct me to a link on a discussion about answering this phone?

    Funny, the most difficult feature I have found is answering a call. to slide that sucker takes too much time.

    I searched the forums but maybe I used the wrong keywords. Any help would be appreciated.

    thanks

    There was a reply earlier that is now gone. guess they realized it wasn't such a silly question:>

    Thanks Samurai26, I have noticed, after finding a few related threads, that this is a common complaint. This phone is amazing, but not as a phone! it would be nice to just push a simple button or on screen icon. It kind of takes 2 hands to answer this thing!

    If you hate the slider, disable it with an app from the market : )

    After checking those out I think I'm gonna live with it until they make a simple fix. You shouldn't have to modify other functions of your phone just to disable the slider. oh well.

    Thanks again.

    You are quite welcome. Have you tried the built in pattern lock?

    Yes, I like that. Can you answer a call with it? That would be faster than messing with the slider IMO.
