Z-10 Making & Answering calls while device is locked

I have my Z-10 password protected & set to answer calls when removed from the holster but it doesn't work the way it should! I still have to swipe down on the screen to answer the call and to make a call when the device is locked I have to enter the password! This is extremely inconvenient! Anyone have any suggestions other than removing the password protection?

Yes, I have the phone set to answer calls when removed from case or holster! It will not automatically answer the call as it says it will! You have to swipe down on the screen after removing it from a case or holster in order to answer the call! Its very  inconvenient to have to do this just to answer the phone!

Does it have a magnet in it that puts the device to sleep when inserted in the holster? Without a sleep magnet the device has no idea whether its in a holster or not.

Re: Z-10 Making & Answering calls while device is locked

If you remove the password requirement does it answer calls properly?

Don't know! I'll try it & let you know,but I shouldn't have to do that! If so, Password protection is virtually useless!

No! Removing the Password makes no difference!
