    Hello again,

    I was wondering if theres any sort of setting or app i can use that would allow me to answer a phone call without putting in my pattern. It gets in the way during those "photo finish" call answerings where you push the button right before it goes to voice mail.

    Thanks!

    Nick

    I only have to do the quick swipe to answer a call. It doesn't make me put in the unlock pattern for voice or text calls. I don't think I did any special settings. I think it was the default after I put in the unlock pattern.

    Same here. I do not have to enter the unlock pattern to answer. The normal swipe answer/ignore screen comes on.

    Are you using a Home replacement (dxTop, etc.)? It could be interfering with the way your lock screen operates.

    Just a thought.

    I also have handcent and I don't have to unlock for that either. If I get a text, I get a pop-up and can answer with doing the unlock. If I get a call, I can swipe without having to do the unlock.

    Same here - Handcent and swipe on the call answer screen that appears to answer, even when the phone is locked.

    You must be using the unlock security option to unlock your phone change to no security.

    I'm having the same problem with my Droid and it wasn't always the case. I can't answer the phone without entering the pattern. Also, when I want to end a call the screen won't come back on unless I hit the power button and then enter the pattern. This just started happening but I can't trace it to a particular app I installed.

    Anyone else experiencing this? Sure does make me wish the Droid would have a call answer/end buttons.
