Help Trouble answering calls if I'm on the other line....

Am I the only one having an issue answering an incoming call if I'm on the other line? Don't get me wrong, I LOVE my Incredible but this is quite an issue for me. It will show the call waiting, yet I cannot answer it to save my life. I have tried the mylockphone tools which is great but whether that is activated or not, I still can't grab the incoming call. Ultimately, I let the person I am speaking to go and then have to call the other person back.

What am I doing wrong? I recall my Moto Droid having the same issue. Help!

I'm confused. Don't you see the incoming call screen, as if you weren't on another call at all, with the options to Answer or Decline?

The phone might be locked, in which case, IIRC, you have to hit the power button (one or two times?) to get to the unlock screen.

My phone will lock itself if I'm on a call and using headphones while it's just sitting on my desk. I forget exactly what you want to hit to get the unlock screen, but I do remember the buttons not working until I brought it up and unlocked the phone.
