    I don't like it... I thought the rotary styled unlock on 2.0 was cool. It was different and easy to unlock with one hand. This new unlock/answer call is more difficult. It looks better sure but even my girlfriend who doesn't use my phone agrees its too difficult. What are your thoughsts? Anyone experiencing the same problem?


    Update: I was going to post pics but it looks like you guys already took care of it!'
    Thanks NoKz

    I'm still getting used to it. I think I preferred the older unlock style.

    Is there any way to use the Unlock "screen" with the one that is shown on the HTC commercial with the Black Eyed Peas?

    I don't see how the new unlock is more difficult to open. I prefer this new style.

    I find the new unlock screen to be easier to unlock. The old arc one was indeed different, but sometimes I had trouble unlocking it so I find this one to be better. Just my 2 cents...

    I dont see how it is more or less difficult?? It is the exact same process..Touch and slide...just a different look IMO. I think the new look fits the "Droid" look better. I think its fly!

    New one definitely looks slicker and is EASIER to do because you don't have to arc your swipe... not sure what you guys are talking about, it's definitely not harder...

    I'm actually a big fan of the off-center clock! might be a minority on that one.

    def liking the straight looking swipe more than the 'arc'.

    Did somebody really suggest rooting the Droid just to get the old unlock screen? Seriously?

    i like the old arc style better. simply because it's more ergonomic as you swipe with your fingers, you tend to arch (without bending finger). when i first saw it, i kept bragging to my iphone buds how arc is better/cooler. now it's just like the iphone. lol

    Actually, you never had to "arc your swipe". But I agree, new one looks better for sure.

    Haha, "fly" is not exactly "new", really :laugh:
