  • Connecting phone to computer

    How would I go about doing this (probably simple) task?

    I just got a new phone - Sony Ericsson z520a, which is bluetooth capable. My problem is, that I can transfer files between my phone and computer using bluetooth, but I'd like to answer my phone through my carputer, using the carputer microphone to talk, and outputting the soud through my trucks speakers.

    Should I buy the USB cable for my phone, or can all this be done wirelessly through bluetooth?

    Any suggestions and help will be greatly appreciated.

        I don't think the Z520 works on Phoco... When I tried it out with phoco built in to CF... it didn't work...

        Peace,

          thanks for the replies...looks like I'll have to check out phonecontrol.

          Just incase compatibility is an issue..are there any alternatives to phonecontrol?

            There is an app that works kind of ok on SE phone.... I don't remember what it's called right now, and I'm not sure it does "everything" that you want...

            As soon as I remember what it's called, I'll post it on here...

            Peace,

                The Z500a works fine with Phoco (no bluetooth though)

                  From Phoco.net

                  Future of PhoneControl.NET

                  As of end of May, I'm not selling PhoneControl.NET to end users anymore. Instead, I'll make it available for integrators (such as Fluxmedia) and dealers / resellers only.

                  Integrators / dealers who want to participate must set up their own first level support for end users. I don't support end users directly anymore (except those who already have bought a license before end of May 2006), rather I'll train and support the integrator / dealer staff.

                  This step will hopefully give me the time needed to improve and expand the functionality of PhoneControl.NET.
