Hello David and all:

 

Yes, it does work better with headphones though I find the experience better
with headphones. The sound quality is excellent in my opinion. Plus, if I
move the phone away from my ear those on the other end do not get to know
how much of an Abba fan I really am (smile).

headphones.

Good morning Donna and all:

Beware. I also have an aversion to wearing headphones. Though I must confess
I found myself on a call with the Ipod playing in the background. If the
sound quality of the Iphone's ipod was not so good I might have turned it
off. Instead, I found myself enjoying both the music and the call. Never
thought it would happen though it might happen again (smile).

Even if that does not appeal to you ... run out and try it. Once you pick it
up it is contagious (wink).

I guess I'm just going to have to try this out, it's really hard to picture!
*smile* But, it's good to year yours and Cheryl's assurances that this can
be done. I don't know why I have such an aversion to headphones, but I
really dislike wearing them, unless I'm listening to music or something like
that. And, we don't have a land line, so frequently I'll go running across
the house to wherever I happened to have left my phone. It's nice to just be
able to hit that left soft key and be on the call.

 

So, thanks for the feeddback, I will keep my enthusiasm for getting an
IPhone alive! :)

Best,

Donna

Good morning Donna and all:

 

Donna. You can relight your enthusiasm for getting an Iphone (smile). It is
not a requirement to have a head set on to answer or hang up from calls. You
can do both quite nicely without the headset. I had to get used to the
reality that moving the Iphone toggles the speaker phone. It was not an
annoyance just a little surprising at first (wink). My niece thought it was
pretty cool (smile). Now to keep her from running off with it. Is there an
app for that?

Hi all,

 

As one who doesn't yet have an iphone, the problem is this issue of
requiring a headset.  I don't *want to *have to wear a head set to use this
phone.  Apple really needs to address this.  I was really hot about getting
the iphone, now I'm pulling back.  If I can't answer and end a call unless
I'm wearing headphones, this isn't a phone I'm ever going to buy.

Best,

Donna

I thought that the 3GS came with a ear bud set with a mic on the cord.

My

nokia phone has this on the ear buds and it works great for answering

and

ending calls as well as talking handsfree.

 

Maybe it is under the accessories page that apple has under

apple.com/accessibility.

 

I've not checked out this sight yet but maybe it might have suggestions

for

accessibility devices that will make your IPhone experience even

better.

I don't want to put in those earbuds for every call or walk around

with the earbuds on all the time in case somebody calls me.

So if I can't hear voiceover say "answer" and "end call"

I  just double tap until it answers or hangs up. Usually, though not

always, it will eventually hang up

anyway. A couple of times I haven't managed to answer till the third or

fourth ring but I haven't actually missed a call this way yet. What we

probably need is an independent way to turn up voiceover without having

to

get it to talk to turn it up. I wonder: if you had a real headset with

the

microphone built on instead of just the earbuds, is there an auto-

answer

setting? Or could you get a headset with an answer button on the

headset?

These might be options if you didn't mind wearing a headset all the

time,

though I think I'd rather not do this.
