Issue with speakerphone on LG UX260

I got this phone a few days ago. Today I accidentally pressed the speakerphone button. When I press the same button to turn it off, I get a "start command" menu to give voice commands. I cant find out how to just turn the speakerphone off, from the users guide. Help!

Poor quality pictures---settings help???

Embarassed I have just gotten the palm centro and my husband got the rumor---My pictures are great---His are terrible on the rumor. He is thinking of taking the phone back because of the pictures. He had an older phone that takes great pictures so he expected it to be as good as that phone considering it is also an LG and 3 years old. I thought maybe he has some of his settings messed up and would appreciate any help with this before we take the phone back. The pictures are dark even when brightened. Thanks everyone!!!!

Master Reset

I wouldn't be surprised if this problem has already occurred but here goes.
I recently bought an LG Rumor from my friend. The problem is that it still has the phone number set as the previous owner's and it's all set up.
I was wondering how I would go about resetting the phone so that I can activate it on my plan? I don't have a Sprint Store around me so I can't just go down and have them wipe it. I already went into the "Security" options and did a "Reset" but it still has all the Phone Information and I need it to be totally clean so I can activate it.
Please help seeing as how my Samsung A640 is totally dying on me and I need this new phone ASAP.
