    On the T730 (and the V60s, I assume), you can set AutoAnswer under
    Headset options, so when (and only when) the headset is plugged in, it
    will answer after one ring with no user action. And when the caller hangs
    up, the phone will also hang up in a second or two, again, without any
    user action. I just leave the phone closed in my pocket with the headset
    plugged in, and say "hello" when I hear it ring.

    You must be talking about another model because I don't think you can
    hang up with any button on the outside of VX4400. I tried all three.

    That's not s matter of the phone, it's a matter of the case. The
    leather pouch I go for my Kyocera 7135 is a pouch, not a case.

    It's a matter of taste. I prefer flip phones because the flip gives it
    a more +phone+ feel to me (when open), plus with it closed there is
    absolutely no way to accidentally dial someone on turbo-speed-dial. I
    occasionally get "empty" calls like that from my brother, if he leaves
    the phone on his belt when driving.

    OTOH, whether I get a flip or not next time depends on the rest of the
    feature set. If Verizon had the Treo 600, there is a very good chance
    that I would have gotten that instead of the Kyocera 7135. The Kyo is
    a flip, the Treo is not.

    Um, your wife could always hang up... this should disconnect both ends
    of the call.

    I have both kinds, one for work one for personal use. I completely
    prefer the flip for a number of reasons:

    1) Protection of keypad
    2) Prevention of accidental calls being made
    3) Screen on nonflip phones that are PDAs/advance results in a
    'scummy' screen from having the phone against your face/ear and
    continuous exposure to elements.
    4) With PDA types I prefer hard buttons as opposed to the 'screen'
    buttons which require the screen to be illuminated whenever the
    buttons are needed and sometimes navigating back to phone can be a
    pain just to push the buttons.

    If the phone you like the best is non-flip then consider it. Otherwise
    I'd get a flip and find that you can find one that has virtually all
    the features of a non-flip.

    Andrew,
    Yes, the most recent reference in the thread was to Motorola phones.

    I thank you for your time and would appreciate any information
    you may find about "Jeff Bond" jbond@nowhere.com AKA
    Alan P (alan@nowhere.com)and his true identity. I would also ask
    that you not to contact "Jeff Bond" before we are able to track him
    down. Should he learn that we are seeking him, he
    may be able to flee to mexico to avoid us.

    Thank You,

    Detective VAN
