    So I bought a Bluetooth headset that has the button for answering and initiating a call facing out, and glued to the button one of those little rubber bumpers you have on kitchen drawers. The only # programmed into my phone is AT&Ts menu, I use their Voice Dial system which is free for disabled. Their VD sys is actually very good. My phone is an old Razor, so I thought if I’m upgrading maybe I could get something that I could do more than call with.


    that's a great idea! I've used those bumpers for different things & found them really helpful. what kind of bluetooth do you have? the button on mine is microscopic and flat, so a bumper wouldn't help.

    Thumbs up COMPLETELY HANDS FREE Iphone 4S

    Only the setup is a bit confusing. After that, it seems to work really well for me.
    Also, at the bottom of this email I will include a list of the voice commands that you can use with this setup.
    Mike~

    You have to first JAILBREAK your iPhone using a free program called Absinthe. Once you've downloaded this program onto your computer, and unzipped it, just double click absinthe.exe to install it onto your phone (which, by the way, needs to be fully up-to-date via iTunes). After absinthe "jailbreaks" your phone... Then, download the below apps from the new Cydia icon that is now on your iPhone via "search". I recommend downloading them only one at a time so that you can make sure they are working fully before acquiring the next app.

    If you have any install questions, you can ask me or just do a Google video search. There are plenty of installation videos out there.

    Cydia download apps
    @ BIGBOSSREPO:

    "hands free control" -- obviously this is your voice control.
    "auto answer" -- this will auto answer your phone when someone calls you and puts you in speaker mode.
    "assistant extensions" -- http://cydiahelp.com/assistantextens...k-tweak-video/

    FINALLY, do these two last things for safety:
    CHANGE PASSWORDS -- http://www.ijailbreak.com/jailbreak/...-ssh-password/
    DOWNLOAD "openbackup" app to backup all of the above apps -- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3N524Nsokzg
