Zoran did a great job with the program for phones that will be cabled to the CarPC but it isn't such an elegant solution with BT phones.

    Hello Mbai2,

    Your wrong about no solution, A workaround is a solution when it works.
    Look at Windows, we even use it as a carpc base
    It works great with my V3. Your right, it's better to use handsfree profile but i guess/hope he will/is going to work on that.

    I don't know about a better software sollution to do the job. And i think we need to be glad Zorhan is doing it. I guess nobody else will right now

    that's all great and everything but I don't currently have time to write a phone application from scratch, considering how big of project that would be... it's a project and software within itself... I might in the future, but I have many way more important things to work on right now...

    zorro understands a lot about the way these phones work and he is still working and improving phonecontrol... doing what you suggested is not easy, at all... most likely will require the purchase of the very expensive widcomm SDK, which is very complex... not sure you understand what you are asking for...

    I knew it would be a big task which is why in a similar post in another thread, I stated it could be a possibility in the future (not near future). I am aware that as SDK is needed to work with the BT profiles which is why I said "if you were up to it" in that same thread. The SDK blows a huge whole in the bank account (a few thousand if I remember correctly) which is also a discouragement. Oh well, it was an idea that was worth throwing out there. I guess I'll just have to stick to the non-computer interfaced handsfree setup

    Regardless, CF is a great program and I look forward to future versions.

    Man, I just want something that will work with my Samsung A700 Sprint PCS phone . Sprint PCS is the only service I know of that allows you to use your phone for internet access without charging minutes or bandwidth used.

    I pay $60 a month (after referal rebates purchased on E-Bay for <$2 a phone) for 3 phones sharing 1000 anytime minutes, unlimited Cell-2-Cell, unlimited Nights & Weekends after 7pm, and unlimited Internet access on my phone as well as my CarPC (slightly faster than a 56k modem). Plus that includes Picture & Video upload/storage and I get all my MS Exchange work e-mail text-messaged to my phone using their Business Connection software.

    You just can't beat Sprint PCS for price and features (and it gets much better reception then my Verizon I had 7 years ago or my AT&T I had 3 years ago). Too bad none of their good phones have BT and nobody makes good software for the USB cables.
