    I'm often on large conference calls. Everyone is asked to mute when not talking, otherwise everyone's background noise is picked up on the conference bridge. When I want to quickly say something, it takes too long and requires too much manipulation to get to the mute button on my phone screen (get the phone out of my pocket, swipe, open the right screen, hit unmute) so I loose the opportunity to respond timely. If someone asks me a question, it appears to others on the call that I'm not paying attention.

    Not that I know of. Can you just leave the phone on the desk in front of you and unlocked rather than in a pocket?

    There's always the captain obvious approach... Keep the phone out and on the dial pad screen where the mute button is readily available... Or the other captain obvious approach...seek out a set of ear buds or headphones with a physical mute switch...

    I leave it handy when I can, but am sometimes on the move. How do you keep it unlocked? Mine times out quickly requiring a swipe to unlock.

    Settings, General, auto-lock.

    Thanks, but the headset I got says it has mute capability, but it's very difficult to push both ends of the volume rocker switch at the same time to mute & unmute (Jabra Classic).
