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.
