    Question Phonecontrol and Motorola v3

    Hi, I have a Motorola v3 razor phone and want to use it with phonecontrol but im having problems. I understand that the phone only supports one Bluetooth connection. So this stops me using phonecontrol and having hands free enabled with the pc at the same time. To get around this I am using a USB cable connected on port 8 with phonecontrol and the Bluetooth connection for the hands free on the computer. This basically is working with phonecontrol finding the phone and reading the phone book.

    The problems im having are

    The phonecontrol answer and end call buttons only work intermittently causing my v3 to stay connected to the call even when I have pressed end call button in phonecontrol

    I canít seem to send or receive text messages from phonecontrol

    Only the read phone book button works from the selection of right hand buttons

    When a call comes in it shows the call from unknown?

    I have searched and read that other v3 user have managed to use phonecontrol to its full potential. Is this all the functions I can use from phonecontrol? Could you share your phonecontrolconfig file?
    Any pointers would be great. Thanks
    Ps. I have searched and read the whole Motorola thread. And im still stuck.

    on new pc (win2000)

    hi zorro . have sent a email with my log. thanks

    for other forum users.

    i have tried this on a new pc since my last post ( connected on port 4) and that has managed to give me full phonebook control. eg lasted dialed etc. also i can now send a text message .so two problem fixed. the problems i still have are.

    1. phonecontrol does not indicate a new text received
    2. intermittent use of end call button
    3. unknown caller.

    also must functions of phonecontrol do not run when the phone has a received text message on display but phonecontrol does not see it.

    1. That's not PhoCo. See 3.
    2. Try to add <Hangup>H</Hangup> in your Config ((<Communication id="Motorola"> section).
    3. For any reason your phone doesn't support CLIP (transmission of the caller ID). Set <UseClip>False</UseClip> in your Config. This will enable you to see incoming SMS but you still won't know who's calling.

    <edit>
    Forgot to mention: set <UseCLCC>True</UseCLCC> as replacement for the missing CLIP.

    zorro have sent my logs via email. thanks once more.
    anyone else that is intrested , some more info

    I have done a bit of testing with hyper terminal and have found that my phone gives a no reply for the commands a+clcc=? and a+clip=? . with a call connected or not.
    Therefore I guess these are not supported by v3.

    I ran two logs The first is from a call, which was dialled out and not receipted. I was unable to end this call via phonco

    The second was dialled out and accepted. I was able to end this call once it had been accepted.

    Therefore my problem is that I canít cancel an outgoing call until it gets answered.
    Thanks.

    Ok, your missing one thing. That's <UseCNMI mode="2,1">True<UseCNMI> in your config file.

    The major thing that concerns me is that you get (as some of other Moto users) a Timeout on dial.
    This means that the phone isn't responding with "OK" how it's supposed to.

    Can you please try to dial out with HyperTerm and let me know what the phone is reporting.

    I guess, you'll have to upgrade your phones firmware.
