    Hi All,

    I've noticed that when someone calls me, and the phone is locked, it seems to be very hit and miss as to wether I can unlock it - as the slider control does not seem to register the swipe across the screen.

    it's an iPhone 5, running iOS7.0.2 - Never had an issue like this on iOS6.

    Sometimes it unlocks after a few attempts, sometimes it does it straight away - but a lot of the time I miss the call because I can't answer it as I'm frantically swipping the screen trying to get it to register!

    This unresponsiveness only occurs when there is a call comming in. Without one, it's fine and a swipe is picked up immediately.

    Anyone else encountered this? Is it a widespread issue, or just me?

    Ta,

    GOO

    I have noticed the same problem on my iphone 5 running 7

    Sometimes it helps to start the swipe in the middle of the green answer bar

    Can't say if iOS7 is more or less prone to this, but I have had this issue very occasionally on every iOS version. Not so far on iOS7, but it wouldn't surprise me if it happened.

    Sometimes a DFU restore can fix the odd issue.

    This used to happen a lot with my 4S on iOS 6 though.
