Opening it one-handed?


Jul 14, 2005, 8:42 PM
I dealt with many phones, and Kyocera interface is the most intuitive, so I was really looking forward to getting a KX2 to replace my KX414. But couple days ago, I spent some time playing with the phone at a Verizon store, and maybe I am missing something, but opening/closing the phone with a single hand is well, awkward at best - but from these phones, it does not seem to be an issue - maybe there is a trick to doing it? I've read the manual, and looks like the phone is fully usable from closed position - without having to use speaker phone. How does this this work out? Or should I wait for the Slider Remix? Thanks!

It can be done one handed but it takes coordination. To answer a call when the swivel is closed (Only reason I can think of for having to open it 1 handed) you use the jog button on the side to select "answer call" then just hold it up to your ear like a candy-bar phone.

To open it one handed here's what I do:

lay phone across my right palm face-up with the antenna between thumb and fore-finger,

brace the phone against the heel of my palm and use the last 3 fingers to push the swivel as far as I can, then flip it the rest of the way against my hip or anything else in reach.

Closing it one handed is simple, I just hold the keypad part and swivel the phone closed against my hip.

The swivel is very easy after a little time.I catch on to stuff pretty fast so it only took me about 15 minutes and I am right handed.I mastered it wit my left hand.It's easy:

Just put the phone in your left hand.Hold the phone wit 4 fingers,index-pinky and then use your thumb to push the swivel.Trying wit your right hand is harder than wit your left.Remember,
    I am right handed
and I done it + I am kinda clumsy. Wink
