    Anyone else seeing this? I'm frequently checking emails and texting while on a call (almost always on a bluetooth headset) and the notification panel won't pull down from the call screen. If I tap home I can then get to the panel, but on the phone screen, it doesn't pull down. Can a few dp owners try this and see if you can still pull down the panel when the screen is on and on the main phone screen while on a call?

    Thanks!

    I just tried on my Pro and it worked for me. I called my banks autamated line, pressed home button and the notification bar started changing colors to let me know there is an ongoing call. I was able to pull down the notifications bar without problems.

    Yes but can you do it from the call screen? I think that's what the OP was trying to figure out. I also tried to bring up my notification bar from the call screen and I couldnt. I guess you have to hit the home screen or be on any other screen other than the call screen in order to pull it up.

    I have the same problem on my Motor Droid. I'm rooted and flashed to Cricket network. I thought maybe I screwed up the flash. But apparently others are having the same problem. Its really not that big of a deal to hit the home button first. Maybe it will be addressed in the next update.

    If you need to go somewhere on your phone while on a call just tap the home button and you can rummage around just about anywhere and your call will stay connected...

    Hope this helps

    Yep, was trying to do it right from the call screen. My Droid Incredible allows it. Must be a Motorola thing I guess. Not a big deal, just curious if there was a workaround. Thanks!

    I found this post from a Google search. I have the same issue on my Droid Charge. It's a bit annoying that I can't use the notification bar from the dialer screen while in a call. Pressing the back or home buttons work, but that's not exactly what we're looking for. If we're having power control toggle buttons in the notification bar for added convenience and ease of use, why can't we have this simple feature? It must be something that is intentionally blocked.

    Been that way on every Android phone I've had. Hit Home, and go on your merry way.

    Use home or back arrow to exit dialer once you're talking and no longer need it (dialer). Can do anything else you want from there.

    You also can hit the screen off button to turn the screen off and then again to bring up the swipe unlock bar.

    I wonder if you turn off the screen lock feature would you not have a problem?
