  • Phone help please

    I have RoadRunner running just about perfect for me, except I've never tried phone integration, and I would like too.
    I have an Orange SPV C500 smartphone. Can anyone tell me if this might work and what else, apart from Phoco and a Bluetooth dongle, I will need to get it up and going.

    I hate to tell you that as far as i know Phoco doesn't deal well with smart phones,and i'd be very suprised indeed if Phoco supports your Microsoft os handset.
    I might be wrong though so just in case here's a link to Phoco 1.5 = http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LUHUPSO3

    You could just try it and see.

      I have a "smartphone" too and it doesn't work with phoco either. If your phone is not in the compat. list of phoco, then you shouldn't keep your hopes high.. I've only heard of some WinMobile 4.2 phones working with it. but like Griff1, I thought no Winmobile phone worked at first.

        Thanks Guys,
        Looks like I must revert to Plan B
        Sooo, If I get a compatible phone...just to keep in the car.
        Can anyone suggest a blutooth phone model that will EASILY set up in Phoco.
        Preferably one that I can buy cheaply second hand, maybe an earlier model ?

          well i dont
          know if the word "EASILY" and PhoCo should be used in the same sentence. But if your looking for a cheap phone that works with phoco i would have to suggest the SonyEricsson T610, the original phone that phoco was developed for.

                      I've now got a T610 as advised. Can someone give me a bit of extra advice.
                      I don't have a "plumbed-in" car kit, but what I do have is a Jabra SP100 bluetooth speaker/mic kit.
                      Can I use this for the audio feed, or is this "too much" bluetooth. ?

                          I'd say the phoco forum would be more helpful for setting up your phone, but basically, it all comes down to having the widcomm drivers in place and then setting the services you'd like to use. If you want to use the computer as a "headset" widcomm will allow you to do that -- as for the native drivers that come with your bluetooth dongle, I don't know what all they have (or even if they work well). But I was able to connect to my T637 for audio, control (RR) and dial-up all through the BT and all at once (or so I remember) -- If I still had my old phone, I could prob. give you some steps, but I don't.

                            Sorry Guino,
                            Are you saying that I could use a Mic on my CarPC for phoco. My PC audio out already goes through the car audio system, so could the PC be used for both ?

                              yes, but it only depends on you setting it up propperly. It's kind of a pain, but I've done it and didn't like the resulting echo of the car's speakers going back into the mic..
