Yes, you get get prompted with an option to answer or decline without unlocking it. I have my One tied to an exchange server tied to mine with strict security policies (disables message previews and forces deletion after certain amount of tries) and I can still answer without unlocking.

Very strange. I have had my phone setup with a security pin since the day I got it and I have always been able to answer my phone without unlocking it.

I'm on stock kit Kat and it works fine. I have pin setup and when someone calls I can answer or decline. Probably just because viper is based on another device. Viper will probably update our base at some point.
