    Phone rings, I can't answer

    Sometimes I get a call, and I can't unlock the screen to answer it. Anyone else have this problem?

    How often is this happening? Rooted or unrooted? Can you see who's calling on caller ID and just no options to swipe down to answer, up to ignore? Sorry for the plethora of questions, but we need a little more info to help you figure this out.

    It's just like any call. Rings, and caller ID appears on the screen. But when I try to drag the unlock portion of the screen, it won't budge. After the call stops ringing and goes to voice mail, I am able to unlock the phone. Why would the call lock the screeen?

    Are you running stock 2.2 (OTA update), 2.2 installed via a .zip file you found online, or are you rooted? Is this a problem that started right after Froyo was installed or was it happening with 2.1 too?

    I guess I should have put more information in my post. I am not rooted, received the OTA update - stock 2.2- and no other mods -yet. It never happened before Froyo, has happened three times since then, and other times it did unlock while the phone was still ringing, but not immediately.

    Had the same problem 2-3 times since OTA Froyo install.

    Hmm, I'd contact Verizon to ask if it's a known issue and tell them to add it as one if they don't already have notice about it. There were some funky things associated with the OTA but usually in limited batches. It's possible you both were part of a bad push.

    I've had somewhat similar problems but my unlocking seems to respond to a double swipe. I am rooted with Skyraider 3.1 Sense and maybe it has something to do Froyo if it also occurs with the OTA and rooted ROMs

    This was going on with me right after the OTA update and it was driving me nuts. Then fast as it started it stopped and I haven't had a problem again.....at least not so far. I did nothing to correct this it just stopped happening.

    My brother and I both have the exact same problem. Not rooted or anything just stock.

    I should point out too that it hasn't happened in a few weeks so maybe the update fixed the issue.
