    Default Change the way to answer the phone

    Does anyone know how to change the swipe from left to right to answer the phone. For some reason if the phone is in my purse or pocket it answers on its on.

    In the Phone app can you look at this: Menu -> Call settings -> Call answering/ending
    Do you have the 'Answering key' checkbox checked? If so, inadvertent Home button presses while it's in your pocket may be causing the call to get answered.
    Are you using a 3rd party launcher or lock screen replacement?

    I was missing and fumbling calls when outside in bright sunlight or trying for a quick one handed swipe while pulling out of pocket. I found if I didn't hit the red x just in the right spot or missed it altogether due to the sunlight that the call was missed. So I set to answer with the home button. Hard to miss a call now. My screen is set to auto lock in one minute so no worries about an auto dial or answer, and no explaining to a certain someone why I didn't respond to a call

    While I'm sorry to see that you too may suffer from FRAIM (Failure to Respond In A Millisecond) syndrome, it does give me hope to know that I am not alone.
