Review: BlackBerry Curve 9370 for Verizon
Pressing the send key opens the phone application and defaults to the call log. If you're not used to BlackBerry OS, you have to remember that the BlackBerry key is your golden ticket to hidden actions and menus. This is especially true in the phone app. With a call in progress, the options presented are similar to what is seen on other devices, including quick access to the speakerphone, mute switch, and so on.
