    Answer The Phone

    I've gone through numerous searches on the site but haven't found any help yet. My question is when the phone is in the sleep/standby mode and the phone rings I have to turn the phone on with the button on top, then swipe to unlock. Is there an app or something that will allow me to just answer the phone in one motion instead of two?

    That's not how mine works, nor the way it worked when I was running stock Moto .... I can't recall if there's a setting somewhere but you should see a screen appear notifying you of who the caller is and a slide to answer. Since I'm no longer running stock, I can't look into it now.

    Yeah, I can confirm on stock that it's not supposed to behave that way and there is no setting that could cause that.

    Has it done this since you've had it, or only recently?

    Obviously I didn't have a clue what I was talking about. I did go in and turn on the auto answer and yes the caller screen comes up and all I have to do is swipe once...duh!

    You shouldn't need 'auto answer' turned on (what if you don't want to speak to that person!?).
    When you get a call in standby mode you should get the callers name/number/pic in the middle of the screen.
    At the bottom should be a green 'Answer' button and a red 'ignore' button. You have to swipe the button into the middle of the screen to answer or divert the call.
    So if you want to accept the call place your finger on the green button and slide it into the middle of the screen and that should work fine.
    If the phone is not in standby mode then you simply press the button.

    My wife's phone started behaving like this after it was repaired and had a software update. My phone is fine. I've check the system version etc on both phones and they are the same. This is driving the Mrs mad and therefore me! Any help would be much appreciated.

    Hi and welcome to the forums!

    Have you tried what the OP did to fix their issue? I wouldn't leave the Auto-Answer on, but maybe turn it on, then off and reboot.

    You can also try going to Settings > Applications > Manage applications, All tab, then find the Phone app and clear data. Warning: you may lose things like call preferences, etc. Then reboot.

    If you still can't find something that works, you might need to try a full factory reset. I know it's a pain, but sometimes it really does help.

    A few other questions: Is she using a third party launcher like LauncherPro or a lock screen adding like Widget Locker? How about a contacts or dialer app like Go?
