    Phone control works great when making a call.....However, i have some issues on receiving a call....If I am in the music menu, everything works as planned. However, in the XM, GPS , or Video menu, phone control acts very bizarre. The music sometimes gets muted, sometimes it doesnt. Also, when I am done with the call, it actually comes back to a windows XP screen with no icons. I have to do a conrol alt delete and end RR as well as Phone control,then relaunch RR. Also, if i used phone control at all during a drive, the computer gives me several error messages upon shutdown. I have to acknowledge the errors before it actually shuts down. IF i dont use phone control at all, then everything works fine.....I will post screen captures of the errors tommorrow. Just wanted to throw some food for thought before i call it a night!
    Thanks!

    How do you adjust the volume in phone control? When I use the cars speakers and an external mic to do my talking and listening, i have to turn up the volume on my head unit way up to hear out of the speakers...When the call ends and the music starts playing, it is blazing loud. The mic has level controls via the PC, but whats the trick in getting volume level adjustments out of the bluetooth phone (Sony/Ericsson T637).

    The volume problem is that PHOCO reduces the MASTER volume on incomming call -- making it "sound" too low/soft... you can run the "extended configuration" of phoco and disable the volume control of it.

    The issue with RR disappearing and such is probably because you didn't download the full brush metal skin after the last update -- when a call comes in you should see a "popup" with the name/number of the caller and three buttons to accept/ignore/hangup the call, if you don't then your skin is incomplete and some errors may come up because of that..

    Also, I've been trying to find a way to disable the @#$ warning messages from Phoco .. if there's ANY little problem like the phone is not on or something, it gets pretty much stuck and after awhile starts giving error messages.. I coudn't find any immediate settings to disable them but I haven't looked a whole lot either.

    Guino;
    I think i have the latest full brush metal skin. When the call comes in, i see the popup with the name/number and the three buttons you are talking about. When i am listening to music, it works great. However, when i am on the video menu, it totally wigs out. I will do it tonight and get screen captures for ya. On the XM and GPS it is real flakey. It just works good on the music. Also, if i use phone control at all, the computer whigs out on shutting down. I have to acknowledge several messages....I will try to get captures of those as well...
