    Answering calls:

    I figured out the swipe part, and soon I may learn how to do it with one hand. But the screen instantly goes dark and then a voice tells me who's calling and to press 1 on the keypad if I want to take the call.

    So - while the caller is waiting - I have to tap the screen to bring it up, tap dialpad, and hit 1 to answer the call. That's 4 steps to answer a cell call, impossible for me (anyway) to do all with one hand and incredibly dangerous while driving. If I can't make this into a one-button-answer phone it has to go back. Possibly all smartphones (except blackberrys) are like this but it won't work for me. Pls help, THANX!

    UPDATE - n00b was getting forwarded calls from Google Voice which apparently defaults to Call Screening. My much smarter son disabled it, now calls come straight through. Can't tell you how much I dig GV, great way to manage your primary number.
