    Default I hate the new call screen / help me CB Nation!

    Hi guys.
    My first thread in the great forum

    Got the new official update 10.2.1 T Mobile

    Unfortunately I hate the new call screen.

    Is it possible to instal a .bar file with the old call screen?
    If yes, can somebody help me out?

    Thanks a lot.

    Nope, can't be done. You can downgrade your OS, but not the call screen

    I am going to enjoy my vertical call screen for another day or 2 before upgrading, i suppose I have to embrace change and will get used to it.
    Unfortunately when I hold my phone my thumb moves up and down much better than side to side.

    I don't like this new one. It's was easier for my crippled hands to use the old one. Oh well...

    Same here, I was surprised today when my sister told me that she doesn't know how to decline a call on her iPhone when it's locked, after owning it for a whole year now and she said my old calling screen is way better than this one.

    I agree the new call screen is bloody awful, it feels like a cheap android rip. The old screen was a million times better and (to me at least) appeared unique to BlackBerry. I hope they bring it back, though that's probably just wishful thinking!

    I have a feeling this call screen is temporary. They probably couldn't fit the extra features smoothly in the old call screen because of the answer bar being in the middle. I'm sure they will come up with something new because it does look like a cheap android rip off.

    What extra features?... the call screen is essentially the same just layed out differently.

    The call screen was changed because people had trouble figuring out how to answer it. IMHO it may have been easier to demo on the phone how to answer and reject a call instead of building a new screen.
    The OS is evolving but it looks like BlackBerry is starting to dumb down some parts of it.
    Off topic but the new notification screen is horrible. I really hope 10.3 brings aesthetics with it.

    I also hate the new call screen, the previous one was awesome and unique, something that would stand apart.
    This one is a cheap copy of android.
    BlackBerry should have atleast provided the option to choose between the both.
    Hope we get the older one in the new update.
    BlackBerry you are unique, don't copy from such OS's.

    I don't mean this in an offensive way by Any means, but I'm amazed that this makes a difference to anyone. Side to side vs. Vertical swipe?

    It makes a difference because to pull towards you is to "Accept" the call, flick away is to get rid of the call and hence decline. On the other hand, there is no easy way to think of it for right and left.

    Yeah.

    Why not give us the OPTION to choose our call screen?

    I'm z10ing. Yes, I invented a verb.

    More options is always better, I like the new way better but, the old way was fine.

    +1 for the new screen especially on the z10/30 much easier to slide the bar at the bottom of the screen than do gymnastics with my thumb to reach the middle of the screen then do the stretch to decline.

    Obviously I like to use the phone with just one hand and use my thumb to control it. With the old way I had to hold the phone just right and it's not desirable on the go

    I flick!
