    Yeah, I meant with Phonco thank you. But I'll remember the power button thing if I end up getting one.

    If the phone is plugged into the usb serial cable, then can the PC use the car speakers and mic for audio through the BT connection, or is that still not an option?
    Can Phoco do what it needs to do through the cable connection and leave the BT as a headset?
    Thanks.
    Spent so far: $1,755

    Yes. It works. Why did you want to run two instances of PhoCo? I forgot.

    You can either use a BT headset and have your phone plugged in via data cable or vice versa.

    All finger-pointing aside. The v551 CANNOT be used to have the computer's mic and speakers emulate the cell over bluetooth. Correct?

    Can it be done with phoneco over a serial connection? I was always concerned about having bluetooth active all the time, anyway.

    If that was aimed at me, I've been here the whole time. The thing is, it was running, then it wasn't, then it was, etc. I would like the definitive answer

    When it comes to PhoCo and the v551, there is no definitive answer. I have it running fine through Bluetooth or the serial connection without any big hassles. Other people haven't been so lucky. In other words, try it for yourself and see if you are lucky.

    The bugs I've noticed are minimal and differ when I use PhoCo directly or when I use it through Centrafuse. As of this moment, I have only one major complaint and it is not Zorro's fault.

    OK, I guess that's rather encouraging. Now, the reason haven't tried it out so far is that I actually don't have the V551. It's the front-runner in my list of phones I'm considering though. I dont' wanna spend the dough on 6230 and I'm not that fond of phones that aren't flip phones. I'm sorry to go off topic here, but could you tell me how you like the camera on the phone, it's one of the things I'm most interested in. It's been driving me crazy what phone I should get, Thanks for the info.
