Answering incomming calls while paired to bluetooth speakerphone

On my Bold 9900, when an incoming call came in, there was an option on my screen to take the call on my handset instead of the connected bluetooth device. I only today realized I don't have that option with the Z10 or at least can't find the option in settings to set it up properly..  If I'm wrong and am missing something in settings, any advice would be greatly appreciated !

Answer it and then touch the top-left selector which will have a "bluetooth headpiece" icon and it will allow you to swap it to either the handset or the speakerphone.

Re: Answering incomming calls while paired to bluetooth speakerphone

The dialer took me a bit to get used to as I was coming from Android where it's very different.

 

The thing is that the way BB10 works is far more-intuitive if you're not ingrained in that which was not but you adapted to it over time. 

 

One of the things people have said, for example, is that if you miss a call and have voicemail from it that from the "missed calls" screen if you touch that you'll call the person back and not listen to the visual voicemail.  Well, yeah, you're on the missed calls screen!  :smileyhappy:  It took me a bit to unlearn the ingrained "that's actually intuitively wrong but it's how my last phone did it" things.....

Re: Answering incomming calls while paired to bluetooth speakerphone

You're assuming the headset is on your head.  If I put my Plantronics on, it answers automatically.  If it's on I say "answer" when it asks.  But if it's not.....
