    I just noticed that I am having difficulty swiping the unlock code (stock) when I have an incoming call. I have to swipe across the screen multiple times before I can unlock the phone.

    Anyone else with that issue? works fine when I'm just unlocking it to access the phone.

    My phone is completely stock by the way.

    Dont usually have that problem. Try a factory reset to see if it helps.

    Lots of folks have the problem. In addition to the app above, Tedd's phone tools provides similar functionality and solves the problem.

    My friend has this problem but he has very oily hands. That and his screen is horribly dirty.

    I'll mention this diagnosis to my wife. Mind sending me your phone number so she can discuss the problems she has had? :)

    I've been having this problem as well. I just got a replacement droid and this one is doing it and my last droid did it as well. I've found if you lock the phone and unlock it and swipe then it seems to work.

    Yes, very common.

    Both apps work, I like MyLock Phone Tools. It makes the camera button (copper-colored on the right side) a hardware "answer button"! dancedroid

    Works everytime and no problems at all///
