I have to add a problem i encountered.
* I got a call from an no saved number which I wanted to save. When a
klick on "save to contact" the dialoge is shown if i want to create a
new contact. The "yes"-option seems not to work. The "no"-option does
only work if I press the AUX-button to quit the dialoge.

* To the problem with the incoming calls: The "Speakerphone"-mode is
used not everytime. Luckily you can switch to "Handset"-mode with the

* Indeed the speakervolume could be a bit louder. But I think I will
handle this by changing the statefile.

Greetings Bastian
