| | Re: steering wheel "phone" button
The 2010 and 2011 Base models did not have those buttons on the steering wheel, as the base radio didn't support those features.
Even if you didn't pair a phone, I think the phone button should still show something on the radio display (like giving you options to pair a phone). It will not announce anything over the speakers, you have to press the voice button for that.
Typically when I make a call, I press the phone button then the voice button, then say "Call someone".
