  • What do I need to use Phone Control?

    I have the computer in my car, but for right now I'm trying to just get it working first on a laptop using Windows XP and my Blackberry 7250. So I went to the website and downloaded the software but when I try to install it, it says I need the .NET Framework version 1.1.4322 and asks if I want to download it now. "So I click yes, it brings me to the .NET homepage, I download the x86 version (2.0), install it and Phone Control still complains it needs the .NET software. So at this point I realize I've downloaded 2.0, and not the 1.1.4322 version it was looking for. So I go to the previous versions page of the .NET homepage and it only has version 1.0 there. So I think we can agree I've gone as far as I could by myself and I also searched for information on getting it to work, couldn't find anything. Help?

        Here's 1.1 direct from M$'s site:

        .NET v1.1 @MSFT


        Not to be a dick, but 10 seconds of google-time yielded this link.

        If that one doesn't get you what you need, PM me.

          Cool so I got that installed. Now when I try to run Phone Control, it says, "License invalid, shutting down stack server."
          I just downloaded the free version from the website just to check it out and see if it works before I buy it. But when I run it, I get this and when I try to update the license, it asks for a key. Is there a way to test it before buying it? And when I hit OK on this, I get a list of COM ports with a test button but can't make any sense out of what it's doing.
          And when I run through the wizard to set up the program (it starts automatically after getting this error), it complains that the device I'm using doesn't support any services and I need to open the Bluetooth Device Manager and add at least the SPP Service. I have no idae how to do this, I've been all through that Device Manager and couldn't find anything to do with services. Anyone else get these errors?


          I've posted on www.blackberryforums.com to try and figure it out as well.

              Any idea why? I just checked the Services in the Bluetooth options and it lists the following:
              Headset
              Handsfree
              Desktop Connectivity
              Wireless Bypass

              Maybe this is where SPP is supposed to be listed. I think the Bluetooth version in this Blackberry is 1.1, not the newer version so that could be a problem as well. Why do you think it won't work, Wired? Or how do you know rather?

                  Ya I saw the compatibility list, it only lists Sony Ericsons, your first link doesn't work though.
                  Oh well, too bad. Atleast I can plug it into a USB port and use it as an EVDO modem.

                    The first link was just a search with the terms "phoco blackberry". No one has gotten it to work, so as of yet, it doesn't work.

                    Also, you do see that the "sony-ericson" is a drop down, right? There are LOTS of compatible phones, the blackberry just isn't one of them.

                        I'm thinknig about writing something that would do it, but I'll probably just pick up a 8703 which has the bluetooth 2.0 as opposed to the 1.1.

                            All Blackberry firmware and applications is written in java. If you can write that, you can make anything you want.

                              i can write java code, the question i have is that i am not really writing a "blackberry app" am i? i'd be writing an app that runs on the pc that connects to the blackberry? or would it be an app that responds to PhoCo's queries? are you interested in helping with this at all? i know i've seen plenty of interested folks on these forums, the phoco forums, and a few on the bb forums.
