    It could in the future but from what I can tell the ICS call screen looks very much like the GB call screen

    I'm not sure what the ios callbar is but on newer versions of cyanogenmod you can set incoming calls as a notification so if the screen is on, you're using web browser or something, it still rings but just puts a notification in your bar like a email or text, you pull down the bar to answer.

    Sounds like cyanogenmod just answered your prayers before you even knew it. :)

    I have a Samsung Fascinate and just put Gingerbread on it. I'm running the leaked 2.3.3. I went to Gingerbread thinking I could control the intrusive incoming phone calls. Am I missing something in the menu. And with the Cyanogenmod... thats like starting fresh again right?

    What did you figure out Dronemaloney?

    Am I the only one who wants a call screen to be intrusive. It's a phone after all. The primary function that I want to work and over ride everything is me getting a phone call.

    Don't worry. I dislike the iPhone's call bar, too. I'd rather have them as alerts that I can quickly answer. Of course, having SPAM calls weeded out by Google Voice helps a lot with that.
