    Got my Bionic on day 1 and overall I really like it. I did notice something kind of odd though. Sometimes when I have an incoming call, it is a push button to answer and sometimes it is the slide to the right thing. It's a very minor annoyance, but just a little strange to me. Anybody else experience this? Anybody know why?

    I'm not sure if there's a glitch or anything, but if you're screen is "awake" (i.e. you're currently doing something on the phone) you'll get the soft key answer. If the phone is locked, you'll get the swipe-to-answer feature. Question, is your phone locking?

    oh, that makes sense, slides to prevent accidental answering in the pocket. i'll have to pay attention to when it is locked and when it is not.

    so it probably is by design and not a "feature". :D
