    This isn't all the time but it happens frequently...

    I'll give an example

    my phone is in my pocket, I heard it ring, I see it's my mom calling.. I slide to answer but it doesn't recognize my touch. The touchscreen is completely unresponsive... phone call ends.. she calls back and same thing.. no response... I push the lock button and then home then it responds

    whyyy

    Nope. When's the last time you cleaned out your multitasking tray? Also, try restoring to a fresh 4.3.5 or 4.2.10 (GSM vs CDMA). Might help clear any software related issues.

    It's trying to tell you: "Upgrade me to iPhone 5 already, you cheap bastard." :D

    A restore won't help.

    I have been having this issue since my first iPhone and iOS 1.0, and the problem persisted with my iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS and now my iPhone 4.

    Correct.

    When a call comes in that you are unable to answer, press the Sleep/Wake button once to mute the call, then for some reason the Slide to Answer button will work once again.
