General :: Can't Answer Phone If Slide Screen Disappears

Sep 4, 2012

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?

Sprint HTC Hero :: I Can't Slide Screen To Answer Calls

Jan 14, 2010

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.

Mar 29, 2010

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.

Motorola Droid X :: Want Slide To Answer Phone Calls

Oct 10, 2010

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.

HTC Eris :: Physical Buttons - How To Disable Slide Unlock To Answer Phone?

Oct 9, 2010

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.

HTC EVO 4G :: Slide To Answer / Decline Calls Feature

Sep 7, 2010

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.

Sprint HTC Hero :: Avoiding Slide Down Feature To Answer Calls?

Nov 18, 2009

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.

Screen Timeout
Menu --> Settings --> Sound & Display --> Screen Timeout -->
Various options including:
* 15-seconds
* 30-seconds
* 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.

General :: Sony Xperia Neo L / Paranoid CM9 - No Screen To Answer The Call

Jan 12, 2013

I am using Sony Xperia Neo L with ported Paranoid CM9 rom with CM9 OC Gov Net kernel. I have used it for a few months until today, I can't receive phone calls but can still make phone calls. When somebody calls me, the phone will just vibrate for less than a second. I can see who is calling me in the call logs. There isn't a screen for me to answer the call: with a call icon which can be pulled left or right. The caller would just hear my neo L's voicemail greeting or like forwarding to another phone ( i know that because the beeping sound is different.) I have checked the forwarding setting already.

Jelly Bean :: Keyboard Disappears From Screen?

Oct 26, 2013

I have a couple of Chinese made smartphones with Android 4.1 and 4.2, and Telstra (Australia) pre-paid sims. To recharge a sim, I have to call #100# then enter a selection from the resulting text menu, in this case by typing a 1. The problem is that as soon as the call connects and the text menu appears, the keyboard has gone from the screen, so I have no way of typing a 1. If I tap the keyboard icon to bring the keyboard back on screen, the call automatically disconnects. Is there a way of 'locking' the keyboard on screen? (Unfortunately my grandchildren aren't in the same town as me).

My current idea is to purchase a used pay phone and somehow connect it to my cell phone so that I can place and receive calls. I know of devices that can be connected to landlines but they require their own phone number and I don't want to add a line. Are there any devices that I could use Bluetooth to send my call into the landline phone?

Android :: ScrollView Disappears When Keyboard Appears On Screen

Aug 11, 2009

I have the following layout:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

<LinearLayout xmlns:android=" android" android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="fill_parent" android:layout_height="wrap_content"> <RelativeLayout xmlns:android=" android" android:orientation="vertical" android:layout_width="wrap_content" android:layout_height="wrap_content">

<TextView android:id="@+id/title" android:text="@string/.......................

When I click on the EditText "@+id/updateStatus" of the ScrollView, the keyboard appears on the screen of the device and the ScrollView is hidden. I'd prefer to hide the ListView "@+id/myListView" at the end. Is it possible? Why that view is hidden?

Motorola Droid X : Mobile Signal Widget Disappears From Phone

I bought this handy little widget a few weeks ago because it gives me a much better idea of my signal strength. It works great most of the time. The only issues come when I reboot my phone and the widget, option for the widget and icon disappear from my phone. I have to uninstall/reinstall it to get it back up again. I emailed the dev and have yet to receive a response. Any ideas on a fix for this or is it just a marketing scam to inflate his download numbers?

Android :: Add Integer To Screen And Print Answer Loop Wise

Aug 31, 2010

Rather than do this by just creating a lot of strings (which I've already managed), I want to add an integer and then print those list to the screen. At the moment, I'm just trying to get one integer on the screen without even adding it, but the app is "force closed" in the emulator. Why doesn't this work? Add one to it and then print the answer to this for a given loop (say up until 10).

package com.monkeez.count;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.view.View;
import android.widget.TextView;
public class Count extends Activity {
/** Called when the activity is first created. */
TextView countDisplay;
@Override public void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState) { int counter = 1;
countDisplay = new TextView(this);
countDisplay.setText("counter here");
} }

The log cat is thus:
