    I've been looking at the FMA stuff, and it only works with certain SonyEricsson phones reliably.

    Apparently, FMA uses only AT modem commands. The full list of commands is on the sony developer site (free registration required)

    FMA is nice and all, but there is too much going on in that program for use to use it very effectively. If Zorro were to add the AT command for turning off auto answer (which is somewhere in the 318 page AT manual) I think we would be set.

    The only one command I know for "Auto Answer", that will reliably work on all phones, is setting register "S0" (by ATS0=x). BTW: My document has some T610 specific commands on page 318. This one I have is from August 2003. What date is yours?

    But this one has nothing to do with the auto answer from the BT.
    Cause: When a call is pending, the phone looks, if configured that way, for a appropriate headset device and if there is one, it does all the identification stuff. If this passes, it waits for the headset to connect. This connect usually is done by the user by pressing the button on the headset. One the user presses this button, the phone is accepting this as a "hookup" and the caller will be connected.

    The major difference to the Widcomm Software (for the Headset Profile) is, this "Button press" is raised automatically, as soon as the software recognizes an connection request and the initialization / authentication stuff passed. There is no way to have the Widcomm Stack waitng for any user interaction (except the SDK... I guess ).

    There is another thing. As soon as one routes a call to a headset, there is no such function like "take it back". This sure depends on what phone you use (but I don't know any phone that's capable doing this - correct me if I'm wrong). At least, there is nothing that can be controlled remotely via AT-Commands.

    BTW: Making settings to the mobile that are static (means: they can be done once i a session and the phone will keep it at least during the session) can be accomplished via the <AdditionalInit> and <AdditionalDeinit> tags within the configuration file.
    So you can play around and try many things without having the need waiting for me to change the application.

    Angry carpc as headset

    HI well i Have looked around but guess i could not get a satisfactory answer.
    Using a NOKIA 6600 is it possible to use carpc as a head set for answering phone calls. and also is there any better way of getting to read the phone book ( insted of exporting it as .CSV file ) and getting to read incoming sms.

    You can use your pc as headset with any phone that supports BT headsets. The problem is the one that started this thread: with Widcomm BT stack you can't decide if and when answer to incoming calls. The pc just answers every call as soon as the phone starts ringing.
    I remember that Nokia 6600 has no bluetooth serial port so you can't access phonebook/sms via BT (except from Nokia specific software), but you can via IR port with PhoneControl (thanks Zorro) and similar software.
    Hope this helps and remember that I've no 6600 so my information should be not so accurate

    Edit: ops wrong thread, I assumed that this was the bigger one I started.

    In short terms:
    1. No (It's not possible with any Nokia phone)
    2. No (not without any extensions running on the phone)
    3. No (same as above)

    Unhappy

    I don't know if it has been discussed before, but I just installed XP SP2 RC2 to test the BT support and I noted that:

    A) it's lighter than Widcomm stack
    B) it's easyer to configure
    C) it doesn't support ICS in network profile
    D) it doesn't support audio profiles

    D point means no way to have the CarPC has headset with Microsoft too
    Cheers

    Choose weather to accept or decline calls.

    This FAQ over at FMA shows how this can be accomplished. I've tested that this works with that software. Since this is a function of just setting up the bluetooth devices properly....maybe it can be accomplised in Phonecontrol as well.

    Kato, thanks a lot for this link.

    I've tried is also and yes it works.
    All you have to do is to check the "Secure connection" of the Headset Profile (not necessary on Audio Gateway but you can check this as well).

    Again, this has nothing to do with PhoCo but with the BT-Stack and the dialog you see can't be controled or changed by software (you may get a bubble over the BT-Icon first then, if you click it the dialog comes up)...

    When you enable this feature, don't click/tap on the "Accept" / "Hangup" buttons in PhoCo rather click/tap on the bubble and then click/tap on "Yes"/"No".

    But hey... at least it's a workaround

    Possible to use a usb cable and a bluetooth headset?

    Hey guys, since my phone doesn't support point-to-multipoint, I'm wondering if I can do this:

    -Use a usb data cable for the 'serial' communication from phonecontrol to my phone
    -Then just have my regular bluetooth earpeace to answer calls.

    I dont want to use my carpc as my handsfree/headset.. I like the privacy of my ear piece...

    will this work?

    Thx,
    Chris
