You might not have realized that the iPhone can be set to automatically answer incoming calls in speaker phone. This option is by default nested in Settings → Accessibility → Incoming calls, and can be switched between Default, Headset, and Speaker. This setting is intended to help people with additional physical or auditory needs, but it can be a handy option for other uses. Suppose you spend a lot of time in a workshop where you have to answer a lot of calls while keeping your hands free. Constantly pressing the speakerphone button throughout the day is a hassle, and you don’t want to dig through all the settings again when you leave. The recently released Speaker SBSettings Toggle allows you to automatically answer incoming calls in speakerphone when the toggle is on, and returns the phone to its normal behavior when it is off.
The Speaker SBSettings Toggle is available in Cydia for FREE under the BigBoss repository. This is a toggle which, in some settings, could be as useful as the default WiFi and Bluetooth toggles. To enable the Speaker toggle, select the more option in SBSettings pane, choose the Set Window Toggles option for either the Dropdown Window or the iOS 5+ Notificiation center pane, and switch the toggle for Speaker to ON.

I’m confused. If iphone already has that auto answer to speakerphone without jailbreaking, why is this app needed? I am one of the handicapped that needs this function. Jailbreak went horribly wrong. Managed to restore phone to DFU, but I need this function to yell for help when I cannot reach my phone. Please help

I have a reason now. I use my bluetooth sync when I’m in the car to talk hands free. My phone needs to be in speaker in the car and not on speaker any other time. This would be a much easier way to manage that function.
