How to force your VX6000 into "speaker phone" mode
I didn't break this one up into steps; I did remove unecessary stuff, and [edited].
(thanks to Chaser and whomever wrote the original)

-- Initial Preparation: One-time Setup --
It requires a little bit of initial setup which can be a little bit of a
pain. Basically you need to make sure you have a voice ringer on your
phone. The easiest way to produce one of these is to go into the Voice
Memo feature, record a quick memo (can be silence if you like)...
[Send & Cancel a Pix Msg:

back to top, left soft key (for Menu), "1" (for Camera), "3" (to send Pix Msg)
you can put anything you'd like in the address
attach sound (highlight "Sound," "Voice Memo," Hit "OK" on the file/voice memo)
send Pix Msg (highlight "text," left soft key "Send"), hit End before it actually tries to send].

-- Starting Speakerphone Mode --
Now you're all set. To initiate Speakerphone mode, you need to press and
hold the * key twice to throw the phone in Silence All mode. Go into your
My Media menu (Menu + 7), Music (2), and scroll down to the voice memo you
saved as a voice ringer. Let the phone sit there for a few seconds, then
hit End to return to the main screen.

If you like, you can now hold * a few seconds to exit Silence All mode.
[For more info on Silent Mode look in the manual on page 31]
[alternate way to enter silent mode:
from normal mode...
1)close phone
2)hold lower side button for ~3 seconds ("manner mode")
3)hold lower side button for ~3 seconds again ("silent mode")
{I actually find this less annoying}]

[Speakerphone will be automatically enabled.
To test it, just hit the voice dial button (lower side button).
You should hear "Name Please" loud and clear through the external speaker.]

-- Drawbacks/Bugs/Needs Further Investigation --
The press-any-key-to-go-speakerphone functionality seems to remain active,
surviving power-cycles, until you remove the battery. I haven't found a
way to turn off this functionality without killing power to the phone, but
then again, most of my work tonight has been focused on getting the phone
INTO speakerphone mode, not out of it.
[It's actually pretty simple, all you need to do is go cycle to "Normal Mode"
go into your My Media>Music and listen to one. It'll play to the external
speaker, then speaker phone will be shut off.]

Obviously, this is better suited for use as a "toy" feature more than
something that will appeal to die-hard speakerphone fans, since there's no
way to toggle the speakerphone off during a call.

So there you go. Enjoy.
