Enabling privacy mode while on a call using easy access

You can enter the privacy mode while on a call using easy access.

To enable privacy mode while on a call, perform the following task:

  1. Press and hold the Select button for about 3 seconds until you hear a beep, after receiving a call.
  2. Release the Select button.
    Note: Stop pressing the Select button after the beep. If you continue pressing the Select button for 10 seconds or more, the badge uploads diagnostic logs to the server.
    The Genie announces, Entering Handset Mode.
  3. Look at the screen and ensure that the handset mode icon appears at the bottom.
    Note: To switch back to speakerphone mode, press and hold the Select button again for about 3 seconds until you hear a beep. The speakerphone mode icon appears at the bottom of the screen.
  4. Continue your call in privacy.
  5. Press the Call button to end the call. The badge automatically switches back to speakerphone mode.
    When you enable handset mode on a call, there is a badge property named B3N.HandsFreeAtCallEnd that controls whether the badge reverts to speakerphone mode (hands-free mode) at the end of the call. By default, the property is set to TRUE. If the property has been set to FALSE, the badge stays in handset mode after the call is completed. If so, you can switch back to speakerphone mode at any time by pressing and holding the Select button again for 3 seconds.
