Default Enabling Speakerphone issue?

Please Login to Remove!

Let me first apologize if this has already been answered, but I have searched and just can't find it.

Anyway, just upgraded to an 8700g from 7100t. Love it! I noticed the speakerphone button and started playing around with it. It seems to work great when the phone is in normal handset mode.

However, if I have my bluetooth headset enabled and I press the speakerphone button while using my headset it doesn't work. Is this normal?

I was driving in the car with my wife talking to a friend using my BT headset. I wanted to put my phone on speakerphone mode so we could both talk to our friend but it just wouldn't do it. I had to use the track wheel to make it happen. It seems to me that it should work, but for the life of me I am at a loss as to how to make it happen.

Any ideas?

Mine won't jump from bluetooth to speakerphone with that button either. It's just a function that wasn't programmed into the OS. If you click the thumbwheel while using bluetooth, you can select an option to activate handset or speakerphone.
