Volume Keys along the left turn off incoming call alerts, change earpiece volume during calls, and change ringer volume from the home screen.

For instance, by highlighting a menu item, pressing the Smart Key will select it. Outlets for the Headphone and Accessory Connectors are located on the top and bottom respectively. While the speaker grill is placed on the back for loud and clear handsfree access.
