    you dont need to unlock the phone to answer the phone.... when it rings just slide the green answer button and say hello.

    Actually, the slider is what I'd like to deactivate. It's annoying.

    I have had the same problem a couple of times. A call comes in, but I can not unlock the screen by sliding the lock from the left to the right. It just won't do it. I found out that if I press the toggle button on the top the screen lock will release. But I only tried that a couple of times, so I don't know if that will work every time either.

    Thanks for response but i do know how to answer the phone, the problem being that sliding the green dot to the right will not answer the phone all the time for me and takes 7 or 8 swipes before it does, and by that time the caller hangs up.

    UPDATE* The new firmware update has changed the screen you power on to so it may not be an issue anymore for some of us.

    you might have to take the phone back in. I'd try a battery pull first though.

    I have a pattern lock on mine and when a call comes in it goes right to the green dot / swipe to answer or ignore. No issues with this so far.

    This may be a dumb question, but what is a pattern lock? I thought the Droid will always go to the slide (unlock) screen. Is that programmable?
