Default Car Bluetooth dial when holstered?

Please Login to Remove!

Tried to find something on this and can not...

Have 8300 curve (AT&T), and BMW X5 which integrates nicely, downloads phonebook, etc.

When the 8300 is holstered, it is locked. The car will receive and answer calls at that point, but not dial out.

There is an option under Settings, Security, General called "Allow outgoing calls while locked". Seems obvious, right? But I have tried it both YES and NO, and it still will not call when locked, I have to unlock the phone first.

I want the phone locked while holstered as I have the leather, and it will otherwise hit keys, might redial, etc.

Any insight?

PS While I am on the subject is there any way to disable the redial feature. I find on both headset and car, if the person on the other end hangs up and so do I, if I manage to click after the call ends, I end up redialing. I don't really use redial so would be happier with it off.
