Incoming calls on my lg 3 phone are almost impossible to answer. The screen doesn't recognize the swiping motion and freezes up. I also have a red border around the outside edge of screen.

"Set the switch off." What switch???? What to do here is not at all clear.

I have an LG K7. Think it's the Android Lollipop 5.1 .Rarely it would answer, sometimes not. I tapped and swiped the icon repeatedly.

Never read the instructions. Turns out I have to place my finger on the ringing icon and keep my finger on the screen as I move the icon to the right, or probably anywhere on the screen. Just tried it four times, worked every time. So, unknowingly, sometimes I was doing that and sometimes not. That's why sometimes it would pick up and sometimes not.

Hope this helps.

Excellent - the "swipe" instruction on the screen is so misleading, but this post was so clear and correct. Thank you, thank you.
