make and answer calls with clamshell closed

I’m impressed with this phone but I can’t believe how bad the manual is. This is my first serious cell phone so maybe I haven’t been “schooled” in the art of reading cell phone manuals but here are some examples of common things you need to do that are never mentioned anywhere in the manual (and I even searched the electronic version):
- how to turn speakerphone on or off
- how to turn vibrate mode on or off

I would love a "real" manual that tells me about the things I actually want to do with this phone and explains the features in detail (instead of one liners).

That said, what I really want to do with this phone is to make and receive calls with the clamshell closed and just use the speakerphone. I get the impression from other postings and from talking with the salesman that you can’t do that without an additional hands free headset but since the phone is so poorly documented and since people seem to stumble into settings that do undocumented things I thought I’d check here to see if anyone knew how to do this.
