I got the Moto Droid yesterday and love it.I was just wondering if there was a way to change the slide to answer a call to where you just have to press. It's not that big of a deal I would just rather press rather than have to slide
Why do I have a "Slide" to either answer or not answer every Phone Call? The problem is that it only started doing this when I just turned the phone off and back on. I have had the phone since release and it has never done this before. Does anyone have any idea how to disable this slide to answer or reject feature. I don't want it.
This has happened a couple of times: I have the phone in my pocket and it's screen is locked, I get a call and the slide to unlock screen is there, but nothing will work for me to answer the call. No sliding in any direction will work, if I press a button it just sends the call away. I end up having to call them back.
I heart my Incredible, and I hope this was just a weird one time glitch.I saw a missed call from my boss, so I tried to call back.The call connected, but I couldn't hear her and she couldn't hear me.Tried several more times, tried another number, etc.Each time, call goes through, but no sound on either end.So I draw upon my Blackberry habits, and pull the battery.Phone boots up, I make a call, and everything is working fine.Any ideas what happened?It worked last night, and the only thing I've done since then is install Handcent.could that have caused an issue? Or is there a setting I've inadvertently changed that got reset when I pulled the battery out?
Currently, if the phone is locked and you receive an incoming call, you have to swipe down to answer it. For whatever reason this happens in my pocket at times.Is there a setting or an app that adds a swipe pattern, removes the swipe and maps it to a button, or any other method that would make it harder for my pocket to achieve?
Is anyone using or aware of an alternative way to answer calls? The 'swipe down' mechanism doesn't work well for me since I often end up inadvertently hanging up while taking the phone out of my pocket. I think the Droid/Nexus One had answering screens that let you swipe sideways. Is there such an app available for the Inc?
So, the slide to answer / decline "feature" on my EVO is driving me crazy. I keep the phone in my pocket. When I go to answer it, it will generally auto answer or auto decline a phone a call. Is there a replacement screen for this? I'm rooted, so I could go with a different ROM if needs be? Or a mod or something? I've seen other people talk about it - but with no resolution.
I got my phone back late oct, and i use it unrooted, all the time, I can make calls very simply. with minor lag here and there. But anytime my phone is asleep, and i try to answer any incoming call, either Google voice or direct, I can't slide the screen to answer. and none of the buttons do anything and the call goes missed. it's really annoying. my wife has the same phone and hers eloquently answers calls. after a few moments, the display changes to show the call is missed. and i can operate the phone again - usually with the dismay of having to call the person back, at the same time while they are leaving voicemail - NOT being able to answer the phone when it rings is really kinda a critical problem for me. Anyone familiar with this issue, and would like to take a stab at helping me fix it. I'm willing to wipe and restore to defaults just to make it work right.
Recently I've noticed that I accidentally answer phone calls without realizing it while the phone is in my pocket.Callers then hear the rustling of my phone rubbing the inside of my pocket.I've read that when the Droid X's screen is off, I should have to slide to answer a phone call.However, even when my screen is off and the slide to unlock and pin number lock are active,I am still presented with two buttons when I get an incoming call.This happens regardless of whether people call my regular phone number or my Google Voice number.I have LauncherPro installed.Am I missing something?I'd like to have the slide to answer feature so I don't unknowingly answer phone calls.
I have to call back about one out of 3 callers because when I try to slide the answer button, something goes wrong and the screen to answer disappears without answering the phone. the phone continues to ring, but I can't answer it.
1) Is there an app to change the answering options?
2) is there a way to get the slide screen back so I can answer?
Is there an application to change the ability to slide to answer? For some reason a lot of times ill go to answer a call and have to end up sliding multiple times for it to answer. If there were an app to change this screen somehow, I'd be all over it.
When my phone is on for a while, the screen times out (Screen Time Out - depending upon settings). If I hit the red button on the right, the screen lights up, but I'm not yet at the Scene pages. I have to "Slide down" to get to main scene desktop. If I have my Security set to require a pattern, I will have to enter a pattern. For purposes of this question - assume there is No Security Pattern set. Hence, the slide down goes directly to the Scene desktop.
If I set the Screen Timeout to 1 minute, it'll go dim, and when I hit the red button, it will require the Slide Down to get to the Scene Desktop. If I set the Screen Timeout to "Never timeout", it'll never go dim, but this will use more battery power. Once the Screen is Timed Out, it requires the Slide-Down feature to get to the desktop. When receiving an incoming call, the Slide-Down feature is required to answer the call when the phone is Timed Out.
Question Is it possible to avoid this Slide Down altogether? It seems the only way to do this is to set the Menu --> Settings --> Sound & Display --> Screen Timeout --> Never timeout
I don't want to use "Never timeout" because this will use more battery power.I find it annoying when I receive an incoming call, if the screen is Timed Out, I am required to use the Slide Down menu to answer the call. Problem is, the moment I do this, it answers the call. There is no: Answer / Decline option available unless the screen is in non-Timed Out mode. I want to be able to answer my phone and completely avoid having to deal with this Slide-Down feature when answering incoming calls. I don't even see the picture of the person in my contact until I slide this down. It would be nice if I could avoid the Slide-down altogether. I would like to have it set such that when the phone rings, I can get immediately to the Answer / Decline option.
I am currently using xtrROM 4.2 and like many - am SICK of pocket answering my Eris. (I know this happens regardless of rooting). Is there a way of completely disabling the slide unlock to answer the phone? Using the Green to answer, Red to deny works perfectly well. I want it like an "olden-days" dumb phone. Is it at all possible to modify/flash the ROM to render the screen inactive for this? Most threads point to unlocker apps, but I'm trying to avoid them.
On my previous phone it had a "full lock" feature on it that when a text message or phone call came in it would show all stars on the screen and require my password before you could answer the call or view the text message does the hero have that option or is there an app I can download?
I tried the pattern lock thing it has but if a call comes through or a text message comes through it still allows you to answer and/or view the message without entering the lock pattern..
Does anybody know whether it would be possible to configure the Evo (or add an app) to answer an incoming call by shaking the phone? For example, a down-up chopping motion? This would help when answering the phone with gloves, because it has no physical buttons.
I want to answer a phone call. I found the intent android.intent.action.ANSWER but it seems that the only effect that I obtain is an ActivityNotFoundException. Why? Is it a deprecated intent? How can I achieve answer? I have also heard about the "telnet technique". What is that?
Is it possible to change the answer call lockscreen from the original slide down bar? I am using the vanilla lockscreen but I still get the HTC lockscreen when answering calls and this causes these calls to be answered/rejected when I take my phone out of my pocket.
So the other day i got a call and i pulled the phone out of my pocket and tried to slide to answer and nothing happned. I tried to slide it to drop the call and nothing happened. I then mashed a bunch of buttons in frustration and think i rebooted my phone. It did it again to me today, though after about 10 seconds it finally allowed me to answer the phone. I have weatherbug going without GPS as that killed the battery, also have pocket empires going today.
I get two different screens when my phone rings. One has the puzzle pieces, where i have to slide them in order to answer/ignore the call. The other just has regular buttons. They occur randomly. Why do I have two?
I know this is not the good forum to post my question, but I need help and I spend 3 days to try to find solution ,but no way:(. I'm trying to develop application that can answer incoming call automatically.
In my code I use the intent "Action_Anwser" but it's seem not work.
I am looking for a lockscreen replacement that most importantly gives the option to answer calls without using the slidey swipey thingy. Maybe just a answer call button. I have tried goto - that was cool, but still had the swipe to answer. Also i tried screen suite, but that thing didn't replace the home lock screen for some reason. Can you sugget any others you might be using or know of?
I was wondering if anyone else has this problem and if there is a work around. Often I will get a call and the screen is locked up and I can't answer the incoming call. I have the same problem with the regular slide to answer screen or now using No Lock. I think it has to do with my hands being sweaty or damp since it is mostly when I'm working out doing hard work. On my palm pre I could slide open the keyboard to answer a call if this happened. Is there an alternative hardware button that will answer a call? Or, maybe an app that would change the power button answer a call instead of ignoring a call.
Is there any easy way to answer a call? I just got my first android (4.2) phone and find it a complicated procedure to answer calls.
When I get an incoming call I get a white phone symbol which I have to press and hold to get the red and green phone symbols to appear and to answer a call the timing has to be exact as if I release the white phone symbol before I have started the slide to answer it fails and I find it about impossible to reject a call with this method.
I thought there might be some setting to alter this like the lock screen but can't find anything.
I am using the following code to do an automatic answer of a call, but it doesn't seem to be working. Intent answercall = new Intent(Intent.ACTION_ANSWER); startActivity(answercall); I get the call state of "ringing," but it never answers.
Is there an app or setting that will allow me to switch on the speaker phone when I answer a call when I have my Hero in a holder in my car with out haveing to press the menu button and then speaker. I would like either a button on the screen or a default profile that when I accept a call it will answer straight to load speaker?
I cannot answer about 75% of calls from my wife. The Answer Icon does not appear when it rings and I do not have any way of answering it then except for the incoming call to end, then I go to call log and call her (them) back.
I have a Galaxy S4 Google Edition with Stock 4.3, and my husband has a Galaxy Note 3 from T-Mobile, with 4.3 as well. He usually listens to Pandora, however, the music from Pandora doesn't stop playing when he receives a phone call. So he hears the music AND the phone call at same time. He uses the Samsung headphones that came with the phone. I use the Google Music app to listen to my music, and the same thing happens to me. I get a phone call, and the music keeps playing. Our friend, has a Galaxy S3 from T-Mobile with Android 4.1 (I believe, could be 4.2) and he says his music stops when he gets a phone call.
Is this a 4.3 bug? Is there anyway to make it stop playing music automatically when answering a call? If it's a bug, is it fixed in 4.4?
I want to develop an application which will answer the incoming call after specific time is elapsed. Can anyone help me in generating the (green key)KEYCODE_CALL event programatically. I have tried the same with Intent.ACTION_ANSWER but I am getting the exception that No Activity Found by this.
I'm trying to write an app that will run when the phone rings but NOT answer the incoming call. The app would have an answer button that when pressed would perform the regular call answer action, but this isn't what I need help with. I've searched the internet and haven't been able to find any consensus on this issue. My app only needs to run during the call ringing stage and nothing more. What would I have to listen for to do this and what manifest entries would I need? Forgive my incorrect/nonexistant use of terminology, I haven't worked with Android in close to a year and haven't freshened up fully yet.
