HTC Incredible :: Slide To Answer CallMay 4, 2010
Has it always been "Slide down to answer call"? I could have sworn that I used to have two buttons, answer and decline....did I change a setting somewhere?

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 slideView 2 Replies View Related
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.View 4 Replies View Related
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.View 20 Replies View Related
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?View 5 Replies View Related
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?View 12 Replies View Related
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?View 2 Replies View Related
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.View 6 Replies View Related
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.View 3 Replies View Related
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.View 3 Replies View Related
Another Evo issue: at times, when the phone is locked, screen won't accept the slide down (to answer) or up (to decline) ringing phone.View 7 Replies View Related
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.
Menu --> Settings --> Sound & Display --> Screen Timeout -->
Various options including:
* 1 minute
* 2 minutes
* 10 minutes
* Never Timeout
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.
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.
Hey I have a motorola cliq and everytime someone calls, I have to slide to answer. Well everytime I try to slide it doesn't answer at all. Any suggestions to help?View 3 Replies View Related
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.View 1 Replies View Related
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.View 16 Replies View Related

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?View 2 Replies View Related
I know this has been asked before, but at this time the answer of the post is not true.
Vringo and other apps does answer the phone by pressing a button on their app, so there must be a way to do it.
Anyone has a suggestion?
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.View 9 Replies View Related
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.View 4 Replies View Related
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?View 6 Replies View Related
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.
The snippet of my code
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?View 15 Replies View Related
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.View 3 Replies View Related
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?View 2 Replies View Related
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.View 9 Replies View Related

Anyone have a problem with not being able to answer the phone or hang it up after a call? Verizon hasn't been able to fix it either.View 10 Replies View Related
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.View 12 Replies View Related

After i installed 2.2 on my desire sometimes the call beep (the one beeping when you wait for the other dude to answer) keeps on beeping even after the other person answers and even after the call ends and we both hang up. The beep continues till i turn off the phone and restart it again. One of my friends have this problem as well so i assume there are others out there with the same problem.
Anyone got a solution to this problem?
Is there an easy way (or an app) so that when the Xperia is sitting in its holder in my car and I answer a call it goes automatically to speakerphone, without me having to answer it first then go through the menu ?View 1 Replies View Related
Is it possible to develop an Android app that would answer an incoming call and play a recorded message to the calling party without the phone ringing? For example, if a specific caller called during certain hours play a message asking them to call a different number during those hours.
In a similar vein, is it possible to intercept a call and if it is in a certain list of phone numbers divert it directly to voice mail without the phone ringing?
Thanks for any insights into this
Is anyone having serious problems with their call waiting? When I get a call while in a current call, my phone automatically puts the first call on hold, and answers the second call without giving me the option.View 1 Replies View Related
One thing I've noticed with my HTC Hero (Sprint) is that I have a very short period of time to answer an incoming call before the caller is directed to voice mail. When I do answer the phone people are routinely telling me that it rang 4 or more times before I answered even though, from my perspective, I answered it rather quickly. Could this have something to do with using downloaded ringtones? Perhaps, while the phone should be ringing, instead, it is loading the ringtone off the sdcard.View 9 Replies View Related

So my gf is having a weird problem with her phone. When she wants to play with the inc, she can swipe the screen down fine to unlock it, but if a call comes in, she can swipe it to answer for the life of her, and she is getting very annoyed. Anyone else having this problem? Is there another way the phone can be answered? I have tried a hard reset and no dice. Please help before she throws it out the window.View 18 Replies View Related
I am so sick of having my phone ring while it is in my pocket and then when I go to take it out of my pocket to check and see who it is it ends up answering the call because it swipes down.View 4 Replies View Related
Which i hate, my Eris did it and it would get pressed in my pocket when i didnt hear/feel the vibrate.
I would love it if this phone only answered calls with the "answer" or "decline" buttons.
