    I would of put this in the sticky thread about how to do things but it looks like it has been locked. Thought that was a good thread. Anyone know why it was locked?

    So when i get a call and the screen is off, it doesn't give me an option to ignore it. I do get the option if the screen is on.

    I know I can hit the power button twice but that is a pain.

    Am I missing something?

    I agree - this should be fixed. I noticed that I can press the volume rocker and it will stop ringing.

    I'm confused, what button do you want them to let you use to ignore the call? What's wrong with pressing the power button twice to ignore a call?

    Yep, this is really annoying, I had to answer the call and hang up to stop the vibration.

    Or press the volume button.

    What is the big deal about just using the power button?

    I don't want to have a button to press to ignore the call (not stop the ringer), I want them to give me an option to ignore the call if the screen is off the same way they give the option if the screen is on.

    The volume button just stops it from vibrating and ringing, it doesn't ignore the call. Hitting the power button twice is stupid and inconvenient.

    I still can't figure it out and since they won't answer my question, I'm guessing they want volume button for stop ringing and for ignore, so that they could complain that they accidentally ignored a call when they wanted to silence it. *shrugs*

    Or slide the top ringer switch over to "red" mode, then simply walk away from it.

    when the screen is locked, you have to drag up to answer so you don't accidentally answer the phone. it would be tricky to add drag-up-to-ignore to that interface, right?

    how would you do it?

    I'm so confused. So when the screen is off you can see and touch things on the screen? Give us an example of your ideal solution to the problem you are facing.

    I didn't say locked I said off (not trying to be harsh), but you make a good point, when you drag up it should give you a choice to answer or ignore not just answer the call.

    I am talking about when the screen is OFF. If you get a call and the screen is OFF you can only answer it. If the screen is on you get the choice.

    My perfect solution is to give me the same choices I have in the same format as when the screen is on as when the screen is locked or off.

    Waddle....your scrambling my brain! .

    I get your point, maybe they could add that feature.....but in the meantime just tap the power button twice.
    It's not perfect, but it accomplishes the goal. Palm included the feature, so it's not a complete oversight on their part.

    Do you have a camera handy (i don't have a pre so i can't do this myself (I'm a poor canadian child :'()). Turn off your screen, call yourself (private - so we don't see your number), take a picture of the device when the call starts.

    Thanks in advance for taking the time to do this.

    I'm guessing they did it because it makes it harder to ignore a call on accident.

    I would think taking a call on accident would be worse.

    How would you do that unless you already had your finger on the screen intending to ignore it??

    Maybe I misunderstood you. Can you clarify what you meant by "did it" in the below post?
