    Totally dropped my phone from maybe 2 feet, it landed on its side, but the screen still cracked and wont turn on. The capacitive buttons still work, but I cant answer a call without the touchscreen...

    Anyone know whether there's a way to use the Buttons to answer? Thanks in advance!

    You ever watch the television show - House M.D.?

    Well around here instead of lupus being a constant suggestion we have root.

    Somewhere on this forum at any given time someone is typing the word - root.

    What adds to the hilarity is the fact some of the issues people are experiencing are straight out of the box, several hours old issues.

    It's like telling someone to paint their brand new car - banana in order to get rid of "that noise".

    And now I've overexplained a joke thus effectively not only killing it but am now beating on the remains.

    I am not aware of any combinations of soft keys to answer a phone. Sorry. I think you probably will have to replace the screen or phone unfortunately.
