I love the idea! And maybe a feature like dumping the call to a BT headset
device if present. I am curious, I assume there would be a config option or
something, because how would it tell if you are the driver? A preference
per contact could be used as well. ie. I don't mind if my family calls me
while driving, but not Joe, Bob, or Steve."
*I hate the fact that I cannot download or save my voicemail messages... I
cannot with Verizon anyways. Developing a voicemail utility to save a
voicemail locally when service is available but you are just ignoring calls
would be quite nice.The ability to start recording at any time during a
conversation could be useful as well.
