    A warning about bluesoleil

    So I paid for bluesoleil 8 and never received a serial number form them or and response to any of my emails. After some research I found several other people with the same issue. Just wanted to let you guys know so you don't lose $20 like I did.

    I am looking for another bluetooth solution for my hands free phone now. And recommendations?

    If they ever do send me my serial I paid for I will let you know, but its been almost a week now so I am not counting on it. Time for a PayPal dispute.

    Their software is crap too. Somebody please write a Bluetooth plugin that runs on the win7 stack or the toshiba one. I wish I were capable or I would.

    Wait, you purchased CF and bought BS separately? I dont understand why you had to pay.

    Windows stack is lacking and I'm unaware of a SDK for Toshiba's stack. If you know if a free (or cheap) SDK, i can take a look. I emailed Toshiba (per their instructions) awhile ago to gain access to any available SDK but never received anything

    This has been posted here and there, but probably worth a repeat. BlueSoliel is the ONLY (read that word again) BT stack available on the market that makes the hands-free profile available to 3rd-party developers via their API. Toshiba, WidComm and Microsoft DO NOT make that service profile available. I have used the free 32 Feet SDK and the VERY expensive WCL libraries and the only way to get hands-free access is to use the BlueSoliel API. Until some other manufacturer decides to open up their API, BlueSoliel is it.

    OH. Well, poop. I got my phone working again tonight. For whatever reason the pair with bluesoleil was jacked up. I re-paired and I'm in business again... for now.

    It is worth mentioning, however, that BlueSoleil has a SDK. it is possible that their core product works, but the logic around it is what sucks. Anyone thought of writing their own software using the BlueSoleil SDK?

    My experience of BlueSoleil (10) is that Android hands free works OK, but forget it for using anything else - most things just don't work. The interface is also terrible, and confusing to navigate around.
