Auto Answer w/Bluetooth - how to for 8330?

I recently switched to using my BB as a phone as well as the email/data/internet.  


I can't seem to find a way to set my phone to auto answer when wearing my Bluetooth.  I've gone thru my entire phone looking for the setting and can't find it. Every phone I've had until now has had the capability to do this.  Is this something I can do?  


I have to say, I'm very disappointed with the lack of basic features that my 8330 has that my other less expensive, but very good phones have had.  Doesn't make any sense to me.


Any help you can provide is really appreciated.  Thanks.

Re: Auto Answer w/Bluetooth - how to for 8330?

You can set your BlackBerry to autoanswer when removed from the holster.


Press the green dial key to enter the Call Log > Menu key > Options > General Options > Auto Answer Calls = Out of Holster.


Otherwise, there's no other setting for autoanswer of calls.


Good luck.
