    Allows you to hold the phone in your left hand. This procedure isn't supported in the standard Android 2.1 OS.

    I get notoriously bad reception when using the left hand feature, will this be addressed in Froyo 2.2? :D

    Thanks, but that's what the feature is called, so I got that. ;)

    What I am wondering us what the setting does, what it changes in the UI or what functionality is modified...

    I was under the impression this was a smartalek thread about a smartalek feature, which is why I gave a smartalek answer. I'm a dumbalek. lol

    No worries, I actually got a laugh out of it.

    The feature is in Call Settings, and it is called:

    Use left hand
    Use left had hold the phone, need a reboot to effect

    Grammar issues quoted intact from phone.

    Just curious what it does, I was just going to select it, since I hold my phone in my left hand most of the time, but was curious what I would be doing, since settings sometimes change things that aren't obvious or UI related...

    Uh, yeah... I'm left-handed and I don't see what this "feature" does or why I should enable it, but I feel I should. ;)

    Not so much the hang up button (that's in the middle) but the dial pad button and speaker phone button.

    I love when little things like this are found...

    Ah, so it is functional. I can see a use for this. I'm ambidextrous and generally just use whatever hand I pick something up w/, and when I do it w/ my phone, it's a bit awkward. They're def set up for righties. It's not even so much the configuration as it is the calibration.
