    My wife and I both have the Inc. and are non rooted. Recently when we get incoming calls, we try and swipe to unlock the phone and take the call but no matter what we do to unlock the phone, it wont unlock. We have to ignore the call and then unlock the phone and call the person back.
    No other time do we have issues unlocking the phone.

    Any suggestions?

    I had this problem when I got my DINC. I almost threw the phone away cause I bought it on ebay.

    Since then, I've rooted my phone and flashed Redemption Rom....the problem has pretty much disappeared.

    It is just a guess but I think the problem was with the over the air update that brought the phone up to FROYO that caused the issue but I have no proof.

    Before the flash, I did install ES TASK MASTER and killed all the tasks that I never used each time I booted the phone. That helped some.

    I also installed NOLOCK which also helped some. It gets rid of the stupid lock bar.

    I did tons of research before I rooted/flashed the phone. You'll find lots of people with the problem but no known resolution.

    Good luck.
