    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...

    I'm left handed and tried this setting and could not see a difference :thinking:

    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. ;)

    Found out, it swaps the speaker and hang up buttons from the right to the left..

    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.
