I tried what wop.simone and still i can't answer ! i called again the senior tech and he is sending me a new phone (it will be the 3 replacement but this time not frome the apple store !!!) because i tried to remove the case and the screen protector as he told, still the same problem. I am prety sure that their is some phones that bugs with OS 4.3 for iphone 4. If their is the same issue, the senior tech will make a engeneer calling me directly from the head quarters I will keep you posted. I can't accept the fact that a phone that can't answer calls even if doesn't happen often, it's not acceptable we pay a lot for this phon

Apple has replaced 3 iPhone 4's for me all due to the slide to unlock not working. This last iPhone 4 I received at the genius bar came with 4.2.1. For 3 months the phone performed flawlessly, but I secumbed to 4.3.3 when it was released and imediately after the install the slide to unlock was NOT responsive.
Not sure what this says other than it seems to be either a 4.3.3 issue OR something is corrupting the software updates in iTunes.
I have just received my 4th IPhone 4 today, in 7 months. After talking with Apple and entering contacts,I thought I was ready to go. My first call that came in, a call I needed to take, the phone would not unlock and let me answer. Since then, it has happened 3 more times tonight on me. It isn't anything I am putting on the phone. I restored the phone as new, with the latest update. I haven't loaded any apps yet. There is something inherently wrong with the phones and Apple will not openly address the issue. They tell me there are no problems with the phones and they are wrong.
The only thing that has stayed the same with all the phones is my sim card. They say that would not cause the problem.
I'm done with the phone. Tomorrow I have to buy another, more dependable phone, at full cost.

I'm calling Apple Cupertino offices Monday morning and insisting on action. This is just crazy, this iPhone and the 3 before it suck! If I cannot slide to unlock and get to the home screen apps or answer a call someone please tell me what good this device is! Please!!
Good to see that you feel so low about yourself that you have to demean another human being that simply works for the faceless corporation that you're angry at. I hope they transfer you to their supervisor, and they hang up on you.

I guess it's you that will be answering the call?! Why don't you experience what we have gone through with these iPhone 4's and maybe you'll understand my attitude towards their lack of addressing issues.
My company admits to and adresses it's mistakes with immediate priority, we seek solutions and fix them, we DON'T tell customers..."well thats the first time we've seen this problem"!!!
Never have liked this forum,
Over and Out!!

It's defninetly the 4.3.x OS the probleme, my phone worked flawlessly from october 2010 to mars 2011 when i was on the previous OS 4.2.x ! they replaced my phone already 3 time and each time the same problem. I tried everything possible and imaginable :
* restoring without backup.
* remove the screen protection and the case.
* running without any application on the new phones
* changing my sim card.
* ect ..
I am in a contact with a senior tech with apple care and he is supposed to get back to me and possibly contact an engeneer from apple. I am trying to convince them that I go back to 4.2.1, he said their is a way that they can do it but it's not their procedure.
I went yesterday to apple store since i din't have any news from the senior tech to apple store to convince them to go back to 4.2.1 but no luck.

ios 4.3.4 (8k2)
in my experiences I don't think depends from position in the pocket o finger wet o anything else I may suppose. In my experiences happens also with the iphone simply on my desk, with screen up or down... My frustraction is Apple Care that received my iPhone for maintenance and deny replacement, assuring that they don not recognize this matter. But somebody else in AppleCare reads this discussions...? or many other post on different internet forums...?
Really wait for next IOS...and pray !!
