Hi Radek,

thank you so much for the update! I like the keyboard idea!

I noticed just a small thing, but perhaps this happened with earlier
versions of qtmoko as well and I only noticed it now: hang up is not
working correctly. When i call a landline and hang up, the landline
phone does not stop ringing. If I once i hung up answer the lanline
phone, the line says busy.
If I don't answer and during landline ringing I call another new
number on my gta04 it actually calls the old number. After the
landline number hangs up, the phone then calls the new number which
probably was previously put in a queue. Quite complicated but hope it
is more or less clear what I mean :)

Regards and thanks again,
