    If I'm reading the description of Lock 2.0 correctly, you still have to slide your finger across to unlock. And I dont believe it changes anything with answering calls.

    Whoops... yeah. I fail at reading comprehension tonight. I thought you'd said you'd wanted it more like the iPhone, for some reason. :eek:

    This is a major design flaw and perhaps even a deal-killer on whether I keep this phone. My old phone just flipped to answer. Droid users have to: 1)Look to ensure that you are holding the front and not the back towards you. 2) Ensure that you aren't holding it upside down. Again, it's hard to tell. 3) Slide your thumb across the screen just right. Otherwise it doesn't answer the call.

    This phone needs an app that would allow answering the phone with a double tap on the screen.

    Try Awake Screen On app widget. It has 3 settings to basically remove the lock slide portion. I have mine set to Awake Stay where I can push the "display on" button at the top and it takes me right to my home screen without having to slide the lock screen.

    The only thing I wish that WAS out there was a screen double tap to activate the display vs having to hit the power button at the top.

    Not exactly what you are looking for, but it does get rid of the lock portion (there are 2 other settings for this application), but this is what I use it for.

    Do a search for "stay awake" or just "awake".

    What phone are you using? I don't know if it's possible not to see it in the marketplace if you are using a different Android version (I'm on 2.0) and am also very new to android.

    Here is the link to the application I'm talking about:

    Awake and ScreenOn Widget v1.2 Application for Android | Tools

    Maybe you could do a search for "screenon" or screen on"?
