Default Bluetooth Privacy Mode?

My friend just leased a 2009 Lincoln MKS. Interestingly, there is a "privacy mode" where, if he answers his cell phone with the button on the steering wheel, it can be enabled to route the calls to the phone (private) as the default mode. There is some way to change this to having a speakerphone call be the default mode.

Is this a function of the car or the phone? Do our Lexi have this? I'd LOVE to have my phone in some sort of mode where I can answer it one way for broadcast and one way for private. Without having to jigger the "to phone" button so that the passenger gets insulted because you are purposely routing a default-public call to private.

And if Lincoln has this and Lexus does not, I am surprised because usually this is the sort of detail that Lexus thinks of first.

You can only switch to transfer if the car is stopped or in park. So the answer to your question, is no not really...

You can always disable the bluetooth on your phone...

With my iphone if I hit answer on the phone it keeps it private vs the button on the wheel.

Most phones have a transfer button on the menu button. If in motion, I simply hit the phone menu button, and there is a "Use Phone" indication that transfers it back to the cell, and temporarily disables the Blue Tooth link.
I know it's inconvenient, but it's the only way I know of. In California,we have to go Hands Free or it's a ticket, so rarely transfer back in motion. By the way, the two phones I have linked are both LG , but I assume the drop down menu to transfer back to the phone, is common with most manufacturers when Blue Tooth is enabled. Jim

Same holds true for my Blackberry. On the menu there is an "Activate Handset" item that will divert the call from the bluetooth connection directly to the handset.
