    Hi there,
    I searched the net but could not find anything, hope you could help.
    I have a problem with incoming calls, my Desire picks the call itself, without me doing a thing. It rings for a second, no more and the call is answered. I restarted the phone but no luck. Did it happen to any of you? How to fix this.

    Haven't heard of this happening. Don't suppose you have installed any apps that might be messing with call settings?

    That's what i thought, I installed tons of them and can't stop. It will be hard to get to know which one. Besides I used task killer to kill anything in the background, but problem remains. Do you think hard reset would help?

    The task killer might be the problem. Try uninstalling the task killer, then restart the phone and get someone to call you to see if it still happens.

    I've had android for months and months and I still cant stop downloading :p

    You have the option to auto answer calls, make sure it's disabled. On android 1.6 this option is in Settings -> call settings -> gsm call settings

    Is the phone in a pocket at the time?

    It's a new feature, not a flaw ;)

    Hello,

    I have a desire s that acts the same, it answers the calls itself. The phone is in my poket most of the times it does that. I tried to extract it like a surgeon would, but it still does that. :) Any clue?

    Thanks,
    Mircea
