    Speakerphone Convenience Key ??

    Advertisement



    The left side convenience key on my Curve 8320 is assigned to voice dialing by default. I don't use voice dialing very much and would like to change this key's function to launching the speakerphone. Does anyone know if this is possible? It doesn't seem to appear as an option in the Options/Screen & Keyboard Menu. Or, is there any other way to launch the speakerphone with one key (rather than ALT-$)? Thanks!

    Nope. From what I know you either push the menu key and scroll to speakerphone or push (alt+$) like you said. I tried looking for a easier way too. But no luck yet.

    Speakerphone isn't one of the functions listed on the Curve series.

    Not sure about the 8100 but on the 8130 it's the "op" button to activate speaker.

    ALT-$? That doesn't do anything does it? All you have to do is push down the speaker phone button while on a call and it should just switch right? Am I missing something here?

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Youre right, when you're on a call you just hit the speakerphone button. The $ sign is not used while on call.

    You proably can just hold the $ button down and it will turn the speakerphone one. But I always push alt+$ to turn on the speakerphone.

    I think different people are talking about different things.

    (1) There is no way (that I know of) to start the phone application in speakerphone mode with a single keypress.

    (2) Once you've dialed the number in the phone app, just press the $ key to switch to speakerphone. No need for the ALT key. No need to wait for an answer. And yes, the OP key on the Pearl works the same way. That's why it has the speakerphone icon on the top of it.

    There you go. You can just press the $ key and it will turn on the speakerphone. :-)

    That's what I was confused about the single keypress speaker phone and the inclusion of the ALT key.

    I can see the single key press of speaker phone for a landline but for mobiles not possible.

    and lew2 is right tapping the speaker phone button is all you need to do. Have people been using the ALT key?

    All you have to do is press down on the $ key after you make a call. You have to have made a call for that to work. I don't think it gets harder than that.
