I had something similar and my speakerphone will open a line if you push one
of the memory buttons so I programmed the necessary code (a 1 in your case)
and instead of pushing the sp-phone button I just push the memory button.
Saves me a lot of switching on my Newton and lets me use the Address Access
dial method, forget to mention that one the other day when I sang praise of
this application, which idiotic programmer came up with the Newton built-in
dial method that you have to hang up every time, quite annoying after 10,000
times ;-)
