    Speakerphone

    Does anybody know of a way to activate speakerphone without holding down the phone button for 3 seconds. Is there a way to make it just a screen tap or something?? I hate holding down the button in the middle of a conversation and either missing some of it or having it blast my ear when it starts.

    thanks

    Other than holding the physical talk button or the on screen talk button, the only way I know of to do it is programmatically. I am not sure if any of the third party dialer applications offer a dedicated speakerphone button.

    The TAPI (telephone API) for the Pocket PC 2003 SDK provides a "phoneSetHookSwitch" function which allows the programmer to enable the mic and speaker separately or simultaneously. So, the functionality is available, it is just a question of whether any third party apps use it.

    It would have been nice for the built-in dialer to have an icon, like to mute one, to select/deselect the mode with a quick poke...

    I found out why it can't be done so if anybody else searches for this hopefully they will find this thread.


    Is a Limitation of HTC devices. Microsoft reserved VK_F16 (VK_TSPEAKERPHONETOGGLE) for this, but HTC didn't implement it. Would be easy to do, for their phone app is owner of the hookswitch device, and a simple call will activate it.
    I can confirm this. Through our hardware supplier, I was able to contact HTC and received a definite reply that this cannot be done via a user application

    Talking Speakerphone

    NO FREAKING WAY, I did not know that, I had the freakin 6600 for about a year and I didnt know you could activate the Speakerphone by holding the talk button down for 3 secons. I love this forum.
