How did you initiate a call with earbud and flip closed?

With the headset connected, I press the bottom outside button. The phone has a setting Menu, 7, 4, 1 that allows commands to be given after pressing "Side Key Only" or "Flip Open". I am set to "Side Key Only". Let me know if you are successful at this.

During the second call, he was not as loud for some reason. I think that I was at highway speed during both calls.

You also mentioned trouble in recognition of digits.

I noticed while around town the when receiving a call in "Driving Mode" if the headset is connected the number is still announced through the speaker instead of the headset. I thought that this was quirky at first but makes sense now. If you don't want to keep the headset in your ear you can still hear the number.
