How to answer incoming call on Z10?
I know that this sounds silly put I have a huge problem with my Z10 answering calls with swiping down on screen. In 9 out of 10 cases i can not get it to connect. I've tried auto answer when taken out of holster but that does not allow me to screen calls.
My question is: Can I answer incoming call on Z10 any other way than swiping down on screen.
I am so frustrated with loosing all my calls that I am ready to dump this phone.

Lick your finger first...
Then do the hokey pokey.
If that doesn't work use a bluetooth device or take the phone back. If it doesn't answer when you drag the white bar right to the bottom then something is wrong

I kind of had the same problem at first, but by the 3rd call I got I realized that if you touch the number and swipe down a bit slower than normally with the phone, it answers the call everytime. I just had to slow down my swiping speed for the incoming call screen.

basically just pull that white thing down. I get like 20 calls per day on this phone... never had any issue. if you still have a problem... maybe something wrong with the screen. or do you have a screen protector? maybe try another screen protector.

I watched my brother have this issue… hey… seriously… get this… you can’t just swipe down on the screen randomly, you have to grab that gray bar and pull it down… Actually, this goes for most of the OS, swiping at it randomly rarely does anything…

Sorry all, I thought this might be a good time to mention that if you swipe up the call will be ignored. I have noticed that if you hesitate on the white bar then pull or push up, (depending on your intention) it will respond better. I do not think this is a flaw just a failsafe to make you aware you are really gonna talk to the random person that will give you a good deal on a cruise if you sit through a 4 hour presentation. But that is for another post.
CB10 App, Z10
Touch screen is also sluggish but i did found out that it was screen protector that was causing all the trouble. I got it from Rogers store and installed by staff.
When i took it off everything started working fine.
Thanks for help

There are a few instances where my screen hasn't been as responsive as I think it should be. Incoming calls is one of them, but according to the responses here I've been doing it incorrectly as well. Thanks for the tip.
Ending calls is another function that I have to tap the buttom a number of times to get it right. I vary the pressure of the tap and so far I haven't got it right. Although sometimes I get it on the first tap without any problem.
Some of the buttons in settings give me grief, sometimes... and other times not.
I wondered when I bought the screen protector if it would affect the screen sensitivity, and when I asked the sales rep I was assured that the screen protector wouldn't affect sensitivity at all. But according to the responses above they seem to (I should have known from other activities that a cover would do that, lol).
I'm going to wait until I get the March 7 update from Bell before I make any more adjustments, that way I know I'll be working with a somewhat de-bugged OS.

Good that you resolved the problem...Never had this issue though. You can try a bluetooth headset...that way you can look at the device, see the incoming number and decide if you want to answer or not by pressing the answer button on the headset. You can give the wired headset that came with the Z10 a go and see how that works for ya...

lol. some people are funny. you know when you press the GREEN phone button to answer or make calls. you PRESS THE GREEN PHONE BUTTON because that is the button for making calls. So with the Z10 PULLING THE BAR DOWN is the way to answer calls... simple.
You will get used to it. I havent had a single problem.
And SWIPING RANDOMLY DOESNT DO ANYTHING to prevent things from happening when they are not intended

Thank goodness I am not th only one who is "swipe deficient"!! Other than answering calls I love love love this phone. Touch screen was a bit awkward at first (and very sensitive) but I am used to it now and messaging is very fast. I will try holding the number to answer.

I understand you don't have to just swipe randomly to answer a call, but when you have to hold and swipe down the bar five times before you can pick up a call, that's a design flaw.
