How come sometimes when I get calls, I see two buttons, one answer and one ignore, but other calls, I just see a slide to answer? Is there any way to get the two buttons ALL the time? How am I supposed to ignore/quiet a call when there's just a slide to answer bar. I prefer the buttons.

You should see slide to unlock when the phone is locked. You only see the two buttons when your currently doing something on your phone. To send a call to voicemail when you see the slide to unlock press the power button once to silence the call and press the power button twice to send the call to voicemail.

Finally! Now I at least understand why sometimes it's one way and sometimes its the other. There's no way to make it ALWAYS 2 button is there? Even jailbroken? Because I really don't like the slider, especially the way I'm themed. It just doesn't look good.

EZDecline may be useful to some but it's still $0.99 for a function that you can execute without it.

To ignore or silence an incoming call when the iPhone is locked:

1) Press any one of the Volume buttons once

OR

2) Press the top Sleep/Wake button once.


To send an incoming call to voicemail:

Press the top Sleep/Wake button twice.

I understand what you're saying, it messes up my lockscreen too, so I changed my lockscreen, that's how annoying I find that slider to be.

I had a tap to unlucky lockscreen and the slider made the button look retarded. Wish I wasn't this picky.....

So I got EZDecline and realized after the first phone call why it's not a standard feature on the iPhone. I hung up on the first person who called just by taking the phone out of my pocket :]

I ended up just untheming my phone. The mix of the two bars caused by the theme just looked horrible. I wish I wasn't that picky, but thats not the case.
