One Comment

I can't find the answer button on my Samsung Epic Galaxy 4G when the phone rings. The manual doesn't have a picture of the screen to show where the button is. I tried to use Accessibility settings to make the Home key the answer key, but the only option was to make the power button the key to end the call.
