Often I'll be busy browsing or writing a message or whatever and I'll be interrupted by the full-screen incoming call display.

I'm looking for something that automatically puts incoming calls in the background, ideally just in the notification bar or something without interrupting the current app.

It's particularly annoying when I'm writing a message in Opera for example and an incoming call wipes the message because Opera doesn't have a proper restore state.

I don't want to block calls all together, just make them less intrusive.

I found a program called backgrounder, but it didn't seem to work, and from the youtube video I saw of it, a full screen still appears to pop up on an incoming call.

I just googled this again and realised I made this thread a while ago. I'm still after the same thing. Anyone know if it's possible?

Haven't tried it, but recently discovered a nice app called itouch which simulates apple's assistive touch feature. If you press "home" or "recent apps" on it during an incoming call, it takes you out of the incoming call screen, and you can use your phone normally without having to cancel on the person calling one of its many great features.

An other NEW android software which probably will be helpful too, is the 'Eclipse Hider'
