    Hopefully someone can help me out here, its more annoying than anything, but it still hinders my use of the phone.

    After about a day of use, my home button stops working completely, also when the screen is blank and a call comes in, it will not give me the option to answer unless I unlock the phone, it doesn't even show that there is a call, just rings and makes the screen blink. The odd thing about this is that the two seem to go hand in hand. If I restart, all is well for a day or two, then it acts up again.

    Any suggestions?

    Its either something that a hard reset might fix or an app that you have causing the problem. Are you using a custom lock screen or any apps that you could possibly relate to interfering ?

    The only thing that I can think of that would relate is that I have Taskiller installed. Otherwise, mostly stock stuff, including the lock.

    From reading this a several other forums for the last month or so, the general consensus is task-killers do more harm than good. I'd try un-installing the task-killer and see if that helps.

    I'd try ES Task Manager from the Market. Ive had good luck with that one...Its free

    I've been playing around with it for a while now and I think I found a simple solution.

    It only seems to do it when the phone falls asleep (goes blank or whatever) while in a screen other than the home. Once someone calls in that situation it goes crazy for some reason. If I make sure to always go to the home screen before I lock it, the problem never seems to re surface.
