    Cheap phone that works well with phoco

    I am looking for recommendations on a relatively cheap phone that will work well with phoco. It must support two simultaneous BT connections (so it can connect to PC and headset at the same time) and also preferably be a flip phone. Also, dial, receive, and phonebooks should come through.

    Anyone have a phone theyd like to recommend to get? I don't care about ringtones or video/mp3 and all that.

    Thumbs up

    Sony Ericsson t68i

    or an old Ericsson T68 (Before sony bought them out)

    Had tried both of these, and seem to work without any problems

    you would have to stay away from symbian phones.. n70, n80, n73 are all symbian based (i have n70) it will work with phoco and 2 BT connections, but no SMS, no phonebook from phone (you would use outlook phonebook) no call lists (missed calls, dialed calls etc.) but you will have caller id !!
    so i beliece old SE's are the best bet..ask Zorro, on his forum, he replies fast!!! he would know better

    this phone allows two BT connections? if so, it would be perfect for me, nice and inexpensive =) my only requirement is that it be able to connect to a BT headset while maintaining a serial connection to the pc. i didn't want to use the computer as my headset. could you verify that it does this, please? thanks!

    ok, i dont have a b/t headset, ive checked the available services on the phone it has the following:

    1. Serial port 1
    2. Serial port 2
    3. Voice Gateway

    I can use phoco to connect to the headset part of the phone, and serial connect, as i can make/receive calls while still connected the the headset part... but i dont know if the same rule applies for a seperate bluetooth headset...

    i have tried a symbian sony ercisson p800, Samsung d600/d500/d900, Motorola Razor, Nokia 6310, and none of them even compared to the good old t68, it can read the phonebook, make/receive calls, display call history, im not 100% on sms messages, havnt really tried that yet, as this is a phone that ive had gathering dust the last 3 years!
