    Trying modem brings up phone call overlay

    Hello All ,
    I have the latest (8/21) Roadrunner with BMV2 skins and registered Phoco. When I try to connect (bluetooth) to the internet thru roadrunner and my cell phone, the music mutes and a phone call overlay pops up telling me im in a call. It stays up untill I hang up. I have varified Phoco working in Roadrunner and cell as modem also working. How do I get Roadrunner to know I am dialing up a modem connection and not a phone call so the overlay does not stay top screen and lockout other windows?
    Thanks for your help,
    Mark

    If you're using regular ISP (using minutes) then it will be handled exactly as a phone call (and it is)... what you can do is add an exit button to the popup screen so you don't get "stuck" there.. but really the only way to prevent that from happening is to use the DIALUP function of the phone and not the normal phone calls (there's no way to distinguish between real voice calls and those)...

    Hi Guino ,
    Thank you for the quick response and info. Roadrunner is the Best!
    I use t-Mobile and have a data account. Is it possible to use the DIALUP function of the phone and not the normal phone calls from within Roadrunner and with Phoco loaded? Could I add this function (comand) to the Main skin Internet Button? If so, could you explain the setup? I could take a crack at the exit Button add-in if its the only way to do it while keeping Roadrunner up.
    Thanks so much for your help and support!

    that depends on your phone.. if it supports multiple BT connections you should be able to do that (that's how I have it in the car)... basically you just have to setup the DIAL Up account through the blue-tooth modem (using the approppriate port), and it will basically create a network link the the phone that does not use your voice minutes (you may be charged separetely though)... that connection does not interfere with the phone usage inside RR (view/list phonebooks etc).. and can be automatically dialed like a regular modem (windows dial up settings).. I have it automatically doing everything so I can just go into the web browser screen, wait for connection and then just start browsing pages.. the main thing is to get the dial up setup with the network settings (without an ISP's phone number).. this is done in windows/blue-tooth settings.. nothing in RR needs to change.. but if you can't get it to work, you may have to add the exit button to the phone popup screen...

    I have a Sony Erricson T637 and dont know if it does multi bluetooth. I will try to hook-up the way you described and if it fails to work, I will add the exit button. Hey folks , does anyone else here have a T6** and hook-up this way?
    Thanks for all the help Guino ,

    That's exactly the one I have T637... it has awesome blue-tooth.. as long as you get the dial up setup it should work fine.. just make sure to use the correct dial up port and put in your ISP's info (Tmobile).. I can't give you any details because I use cingular so the info is different..

    I did as you instructed and now it all works GREAT ! You are the man Guino!

    From T-Mobile:
    Setting up the modem

    1. On the PC before proceeding, verify that the device is not currently paired with the Bluetooth Manager software.

    2. Right click on Bluetooth Configuration icon in the lower right corner of the desktop and select Services, and Connection Wizard.

    3. Click on Search Devices… if the search does not start automatically.

    4. Click on OK when the search is finished.

    5. Highlight the handset and select Dial-Up Networking for the service, then click on Next.

    6. On the PC enter a PIN Code (example 1234), then click on Next.

    7. On the handset press Yes when asked to Add to “My Devices”?.

    8. Enter the same Password (PIN Code), and press OK.

    9. On the PC, type T-Mobile GPRS for the Connection Name:, then click on Finish.



    Setting up the connection

    1. On the PC double click on the My Bluetooth Places icon on the desktop

    2. Double click on the T-Mobile GPRS icon

    3. Ensure the User name and Password fields are blank, and type *99# in the Dial box.



    Making the connection

    1. On the PC in the Connect BluetoothConnect box click on Dial

    You will now be connected to the T-Mobile GPRS service.

    Cheers ,
