Currently, most of mobile phones that support headsets come with an auto-answer feature. However, the auto-answer will only work if the headset is plugged in prior to receiving any mobile terminated call. If the mobile phone receives a voice call first before the headset is plugged in, the auto-answer feature will not be invoked. The user will have to press the “Send/End” key on the headset to answer or press the “Send” button on the mobile phone to answer the call. See Figure 1. This is especially inconvenient and not user friendly to mobile users when driving a vehicle and receiving call without the headset being plugged-in prior to receiving the call.
