    Default Delay when answering

    Hey all,

    Has anyone noticed a delay when sliding to answer a call? I have an iPhone 5 on Verizon and when I answer, there's always a 3-4 second delay where I'm saying "hello?" Over and over because of the delay. Super annoying.

    I have one on AT&T. Nothing super annoying but I do have to repeat myself at the beginning a lot.

    Have not noticed this, but i have noticed a delay in hanging up after a lengthy phone call...i talked to my dad for about a half hour the other day and my phone simply wouldn't respond to any inputs for about 10sec. It was strange but eventually hung up and went back to normal. I don't remember having that kind of lag with any other iPhone before.

    I'm on att, and I have noticed this. I will say that I seemed to have the same issue with my 4S as well though.

    tuffy100, I noticed this from day one. Now I have gotten used to saying "hello" a second later after picking up. Same thing has happened on my home line when we switched to magicjack.

    Default Re: Delay when answering

    Guys i noticed that when i received calls while the screen was on and the phone NOT locked, every call could be answered with 0 delay. Therefore i enable the "reduce motion" from accessibility settings and everything is ok now The delay is produced by the slow animation of ios7. Please spread this solution everywhere as many iphone users are experiencing this problem! Peace!

    Thank you for the tip, but be aware that the last post prior to yours was made on November 15, 2012 and prior to the release of iOS 7...

    Our phones have had that delay as well and on iOS 7. I've just trained myself to wait about 3 seconds before saying, "Hello". Otherwise, I have to repeat myself. I have not noticed if "Reduce Motion" has anything to do with it. I do keep "Reduce Motion" turned on most of the time.
