Disable automatic phone answering on the flip phone

I just got a AT&T Cingular Flip™ IV.  I recall in the older model, I had a setting where I could disable the phone from answering automatically when you open the phone. Now it does it automatically and I cannot find anywhere in the settings where to turn this off!! It's necessary to do this, so I'm not automatically answering everytime I get a call. Appreciate the help in figuring this out.

We're here to help with the automatic answering of calls on your Cingular Flip IV @johnghadimi.


On page 21 of the Cingular Flip IV user manual it states the device will automatically answer upon opening the device. There is not an option in this model of device to turn that feature off. 


We hope this helps! Thank you for reaching out to AT&T Community Forums.
