    After setting up the key-guard it seems to work, but every time I get an incoming call it is immediately disabled which is VERY annoying because the screen on the phone answers as I remove the phone from the holster. Is there a way to either make the key-guard actually disable the touchscreen when calls are incoming?, or disable the touchscreen answer key?

    Thanks.

    I've tried putting the pass code, and I've tried disabling the screen during calls neither of those options worked.

    I think that's Palm OS only, I would also like the OP's request of keeping keyguard for incoming call notifications...

    where do you find the the option to lock the screen on incoming calls? The option that I found only locks the screen during incoming calls. (I'm using the Treo 700wx -sprint-)

    How did 4 people vote yes? Tapping the screen will answer the call, NOT GOOD when its in your pocket. Besides, that is not what its supposed to do!

    the only way you can answer the incoming wall by touching the screen is if you tap the bottom left conner where is says answer. the screen guard IS disabled during the incoming call.

    during the incoming call you have a few options.
    1. press any key on the keyboard, or the center of dpad, to silent.
    2. press the green key to answer.
    3. press the softkey under answer.
    4. press the answer on the screen in the taskbar area.
    5. red to end
    you may be misunderstanding somethings. the keyguard is so no accidental keypress make calls or open apps, thus saving battery duw to screen activation. this is only good while the phone is off. disable touchscreen while in call is just that. while in a call and not when incoming call is coming in, will the screen lock to prevent accidental screen clicks with face and ears.

    so yes, I can answer incoming calls by touching the screen, BUT ONLY IF I touch the small area where it says answer.
    if I were to vote I would say yes. there is no way I can tape the small area where it says answer with my case while removing it. I can bearly hit it with my finger. lol
    I hope this helps, cody

    I understand what your saying about the key guard, but ultimately there isn't a way to prevent the touchscreen from answering incoming calls?

    Well then for SOME STUPID REASON I felt that since this phone has a touchscreen, that a tap on the screen (whereever it may be) shouldn't answer a call, or at least be an option.

    If you are engaged in physical activity and have the phone in your pocket, the screen gets tapped a thousand times. If the phones off, who cares? But the phone wakes up WITHOUT KEYGUARD when the phone rings. Silly is me who thinks this should be different, when I hear a friend screaming HELLO HELLO when I didn't want to answer the call right now....

    Granted, this has only happened once to me, because my phone is usually in a holster, but the potential is there...

    If you check the manual for the 700p i found it at:
    http://www.palm.com/us/support/handb...psprint_UG.pdf

    on page 299 of the manual it mentions the keyguard:

    2. Select Keyguard.
    3. Check one or both of the following boxes:
    Incoming calls received: Disables the screen when the phone rings. You
    must use the 5-way to select the onscreen Answer and Ignore
    buttons, or press Talk to answer the call or Power/End to
    ignore the call.
    On a call: Disables the screen after you answer a call. You must use the
    5-way to select the onscreen buttons during the call. Use this
    setting to avoid accidentally pressing onscreen buttons while you’re
    holding your device near your ear to speak.

    it has two options where as the lame windows mobile version doesn't this is weak-lets get some more no votes.

    After an at length discussion with the people at Palm (45 Minutes later) Palm doesn't consider the lack of the two touchscreen options to be a problem. (Even though the feature is available on the 700p) Maybe if more people complained. . . we could get some results like the SMS issue.
