That does seem ackward. I've accdentally hung up on a couple people while trying to put them on speaker. Not really much of an issue now that I spent a small fortune equipping my car with Bluetooth capabilities. My biggest complaint about the Pearl's input is the predictive typing. I can shut it off and use mult-tap, but it defaults to the predictive mode all the time so I keep having to force it back. There's also the issue with the side buttons being hit accidentally. I disabled one of them, and set the other to show maps, which is something I often need to access quickly.
