When your iPhone is locked and you receive a phone call, you’ll see a slide to answer knob that allows you to respond to the call, and declining a phone call will require you to press the Sleep/Wake button twice. Cou is a new jailbreak tweak that allows you to customize this interface and replace the slider found on the Lock screen with buttons you normally see when you receive a call while the device is unlocked.

Developed by danteseig, Cou replaces the Slide to Answer slider with two buttons called ‘Answer’ and ‘Decline’. This means that you can easily reject a phone call by pressing the Decline button rather than double pressing the Sleep button.

Other than this, the tweak also allows you hide the tiny ‘Remind Me’ and ‘Message’ buttons that appear when you’re receiving a phone call.


After installing Cou, head to the tweak’s preference panel from the stock Settings app. There, you can enable or disable the tweak via the kill-switch toggle as well as hide the Remind Me and Message buttons on the incoming call interface. Enabling/disabling the tweak requires you to respring your device.

That’s all the tweak offers and if you’re like me and prefer to have buttons rather than the sliders, then you should definitely give this tweak a try. Cou is available on Cydia’s BigBoss repository for free and is compatible with iOS 7 devices.

    Finally… I never get it why isn’t a stock option! So simple and Apple made that complicated!

      Sliding from Right to Left for 3CM is Complicated? ._.

      • Nuno123

        Is more complicated to reject a call, plus the sleep/awake button suffers.

    Is there any tweak to get slide to answer in round buttons like in 7.1..i am on 7.0.4 but i want those round buttons in incoming calls.!

    • HooDatty

      No but you can update to 7.1.2.
      You should be there already for its MASSIVE performance improvements from 7.0.x.

      • Varun Soi

        But now ios8 is released i mean can i still upgrade to 7.1.x?

      • Ali Morina

        you can upgrade to 7.1.2

      • Varun Soi

        But how?

      • Ali Morina

        sorry bro you missed it, you can no longer install ios7.1.2 :/

  • jack

    Yeah now it is much easier to anawer and decline by mistake when grabbinh the phone out of your pocket. Stupid tweak

  • Dan

    Great tweak, been waiting for something like this for a while. Another reason to stay on 7.1.2


    Hmm slide to answer only on lock screen is for safety from mishandled attending of call while on pocket done by Apple as safety measure hmm this tweak removes that safety :p

    Now I am not sure is Cou tweak worth to have hmmm….

    If you are buying a unlocking website that is still able to unlock AT&T phones following their data base power down, you are ready to check out Att-iphoneunlocking, it’s one of many most reliable unlocking website on the net, I tried it for 6 of my phones following the turn off previously

    If any of you people is having trouble attempting to սոⅼοсking AT&T devices, you can take a search at just google attiphoneuunlockiing, it’s one of the few sites that’s still in a position to ՍΝᏞΟᏟΚing AT&T phones after AT&T had its database renewed, which means AT&T denied many cheap սոⅼοсking owners’access to their database.
