Can't answer phone sometimes
I have a weird problem. Hopefully, someone out there knows what to do.
Here it is: I just got a call. The screen came on like normal. But when I tried to swipe down to answer it, it wouldn't allow me to swipe.
I had this happen a couple days ago, but figured it was just a one-time strange thing. However, my wife said that she tried to answer my phone once and it did the same thing to her.
Oddly, another call came in after the one I missed and I was able to answer it successfully without any trouble. I had made no changes to the settings or anything between the calls. Sometimes it works right, and sometimes it doesn't.
Anyone have any ideas on what the problem might be? My phone us unrooted and I have only a few apps that I've downloaded.

PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. Otherwise, it's like calling your doctor and saying "My head hurts." Your doctor can't treat you unless he knows whether you have a headache or a concussion, and we can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they occurred.
Give a person an answer, and you've solved one problem. Teach a person to search, and you have helped them solve problems forever.

Mine does that and what I figured out was, while the ringer is ringing, it will not swipe to answer. I have to swipe during the pause between rings. As if the when the ringer is sounding, all other action is stopped. May or may not be your issue but that's what mine does. This is my second evo and it was the same on the first.
