If this sequence is set for 2 or 3 rings in Settings: if speaker button is pushed immediately after call is initiated, the rings play back correctly. If speaker button is pushed after first ring of audio file plays, then when speaker button is pressed, there is only silence until the audio file completes and the voicemail number recording plays.

* When calling a recording, it now shows “calling…” instead of “calling…mobile”

You can then enter the number “1” for the U.S. country code and then the rest of the phone number will still display properly (for U.S. phone number format).
