Answering calls in pocket

    Seems like this has been an ongoing HTC issue that has never been addressed, but...

    When the phone rings in my pocket, removing it from my pocket automatically answers the call. The vertical slider is triggered through my trousers by my leg as I slide the phone up.

    Can anyone suggest a way of changing the action required to answer the call so this doesn't happen? I'm not interested in suggestions to change the way I keep the phone in my pocket, I shouldn't have to as this is a design flaw in the software.

    i've not had that problem, i'm with O2 (UK) and the semi circle is on the bottom of the screen, so when taking the phone out of my pocket, it doesn't move the unlocking trigger

    What about the answer/reject buttons which slide downwards?

    hmm, your right they do slide down, but, i've still not had much problem with it, i do keep the screen to the inside (leg side) when it's in my pocket.

    So do I, which seems to be the problem. Do you have a screen protecter? I'm thinking maybe that would de-sensitize the screen in my pocket...
