It absolutely does, but requires the Phone Clip+.  The Linx2 allows audio through the iPhone wirelessly, but still requires you to use the microphone of the iPhone.  The Phone Clip+ becomes the microphone.  It additionally allows you to make program changes, volume changes, mute functionality, and answering/rejecting an incoming phone call.

Only if you use the Bluetooth Clip.  They use the microphone in the cellular phone, so you need to have the phone somewhere near your mouth when you talk.  I have a pair of Linx 962's in both custom and RIC.

You will have to use the ReSound Unite Phone Clip+ to have hands-free.

Yes, the microphones in the hearing aids serves as the mic for the phone, so there is no need to hold the phone to your mouth.

This is not the case at all. Hearing aid mics do not send the users voice to the caller via bluetooth.

Is Julie Norin incorrect? She's the only one out of the 5 who responded to my question saying that the hearing aid itself acts as the microphone for my speaking on my iPhone. That way I can keep my iPhone in my purse.

I believe the correct answer is that you will need to purchase the Phone Clip+ accessory from your audiologist, and have the device setup with your hearing aids first. The Phone Clip+ can be clipped onto your shirt and will pick up your voice and send it to your iPhone, which you may keep in your purse at that stage. Unfortunately the hearing aids cannot pick up your voice.
