    Default How to avoid having to "swipe-to-answer" to take a call, despite the fact I don't use a lock screen.

    I don't use a lock screen, but incoming calls require that I slide to accept the call. I'd prefer (as on my bionic) to simply hit "accept". any way to get rid of the "swipe-to-answer" feature?

    I think the reason for the swipe to unlock is similar for the reason we have swipe to unlock lockscreens; so you don't answer the phone with your ****. A button can easily be hit by sitting in your pocket hitting against your leg, but a swipe to answer is much more difficult to have accidentally happen.

    And there is no way to change it to a button without heavy modification to the UI apk elements.

    Check out an app called 'small call'.

    What I do is simply say "answer" or "reject" when I get an incoming call.

    Within the s-voice app if you enable the option to control apps via voice there are a lot of things you can do. It may not work for you, but it's an option.

    I know on the AT&T device, you can go into the Phone display, then go Menu, Call Settings, Call answering/ending. You can check an option here to let you press the Home key to answer incoming calls. That's about the only way I know in the stock OS. Here's what it looks like on AT&T:

    Have you tried ShakeCall? Answer and end the call by shaking the phone.
