While I was shaving just now, my phone rang with an important call I had been waiting for all morning. I run to my iPhone with wet hands and it says "slide to answer", but when I tried sliding it'd slide ALMOST slide all the way but then it'd slide back to the beginning! I tried consecutively four times until I had to wipe my hands all over my bed to get it to answer.

Oh, how my iPhone teases me! :mad:

I have the same problem, but this is all the time. To be able to unlock it I actually need to press the only button and then slide my finger. It sucks. Could it be that my iPhone is defective?

HAHA the iPhone's only weakness; gravity and water!

And to the other poster - touching the iPhone screen with a wet finger probably wouldn't harm anything annything. It didn't for me at least.

Lastly, I didn't want to make a new subject for this - but has any one had a friend name their iPhone..? My friend named mine Pete... =/

Well I mean the slide to unlock thing is a feature...It's kind of like locking the key pad on a regular mobile phone.
