    Has anyone else been having a problem when you are getting a phone call, but your iPhone will not let you slide to unlock?

    It has happened 3 times this week. Fairly annoying.

    Has happened to me since I bought my iPhone. And all of my friends who have an iPhone say they have this problem occasionally.

    It's doesn't happens very often to me (maybe once a week), but it is very frustrating trying to answer a call and not being able to.

    Poor phone performance due to a variety of reasons can be a problem.

    Had it not happened to me however, I would not have tried Android.

    Now I have the best of both worlds.

    A terrific iPhone, and when it craps out I've got Android to count on. It never fails.

    Agreed, it can be very frustrating. Although it doesn't happen often, it can be very annoying when it does happen. I have had a few calls that I could never answer and missed due to this, but usually after trying several times I can get it to slide over and unlock. What I find sometimes seems to help is to wet my finger with my tongue, but even this does not always work. I really wish Apple would fix this problem.
