    Many of us in the BB10 community would like to have the option of selecting which incoming call screen to use. Some prefer the older 10.1 style (Up/Down). While others like the newer (10.2) style (Left/Right). The remaining group of BB10 owners would like the ability to change it up once in a while. And to be fair, I can't leave out the "I don't care" and "I prefer something else" camps.

    Please take our poll. What is your preference?

    Learned to live with the new call screen, but certainly would welcome the old call screen back with open arms

    At first I wasn't a huge fan of the change, but I feel it works much better now, not necessarily for me since I never had an issue, but two female friends of mine could not answer the phone half the time using the 10.1 style.
    I vote "like" and I don't need the option.

    You think you've got issues?
    Someone actually tried to convince me that the world was round the other day!

    I mean, really!!

    and, this poll is rigged!
    Where's the option for "I couldn't care less?" HUH?

    (or is my vote to Quacked to count!?)

    I'd prefer the old screen IF the swipe up answered the call and down was ignore. They (BB) said there was a "think point" on the old screen and i agree with that, as it took me a couple calls to get the down swipe as answer. Even though all other swipes up on the phone usually end or minimize something it is still a positive action, and one I assumed would be for answering a call. Plus it is more a natural action in that direction IMO.
    I also liked the large amount of screen real estate associated with the old screen. I've had a few mis-intended ignores with the new one just because a quick response landed to much to the right.

    Agreed with Beakman.

    Although I never had a problem with swiping down to answer, it is possible that people if he instinctively swipe up to answer.

    However, in either case, the older method is better in my opinion. With the new method, I have cancelled a lot of calls by mistake. Being a right handed person and having the phone in my right front pocket, whenever I take out the phone with my fingers wrapped around the phone, the thumb sometimes slides across the screen from the center to the right, rejecting the call. It was very annoying before but now I make a conscious effort to not touch the screen. It shouldn't be like this - having to consciously position your fingers.

    Older method please! And as Beakman said, swiping up is a positive gesture and also because that is the gesture most used while navigating, it just remains consistent throughout. Also, it is like Android and iOS. BlackBerry should be different like it was.

    I gotta agree with you, every week there's at least 3-4 threads about the new call screen or people asking for options to change to the old one.

    Yes. I want the option.

    BlackBerry listened to the fans and changed the icon size, the listened to the fans and gave us the dark theme. Here's hoping third times a charm and we get the option for the old call screen.

    yes please, the new call screen BUT i'd love to have the option to cater left/right handed person with:
    - swipe to the left to answer/to the right to reject, OR
    - swipe to the right to answer/to the left to reject

    if that option can be implemented that will be GREAT!

    but please, no more old call screen, somehow it's very intrusive to have the caller's name and the bar hovering right on the centre of the screen defeating the purpose of having the caller's image. that's just so... redundant.

    Didn't realize there was a topic limit to what people are allowed to post. I have many accounts on different forums and this quite common. Clearly there is a good percentage of people on this forum who don't like the new call screen. Keep it up guys... maybe this will make it's way back to BB an we will get an option in 10.3
