    Phone help please

    I have RoadRunner running just about perfect for me, except I've never tried phone integration, and I would like too.
    I have an Orange SPV C500 smartphone. Can anyone tell me if this might work and what else, apart from Phoco and a Bluetooth dongle, I will need to get it up and going.

    I hate to tell you that as far as i know Phoco doesn't deal well with smart phones,and i'd be very suprised indeed if Phoco supports your Microsoft os handset.
    I might be wrong though so just in case here's a link to Phoco 1.5 = http://www.megaupload.com/?d=LUHUPSO3

    You could just try it and see.

    I have a "smartphone" too and it doesn't work with phoco either. If your phone is not in the compat. list of phoco, then you shouldn't keep your hopes high.. I've only heard of some WinMobile 4.2 phones working with it. but like Griff1, I thought no Winmobile phone worked at first.

    Thanks Guys,
    Looks like I must revert to Plan B
    Sooo, If I get a compatible phone...just to keep in the car.
    Can anyone suggest a blutooth phone model that will EASILY set up in Phoco.
    Preferably one that I can buy cheaply second hand, maybe an earlier model ?

    well i dont
    know if the word "EASILY" and PhoCo should be used in the same sentence. But if your looking for a cheap phone that works with phoco i would have to suggest the SonyEricsson T610, the original phone that phoco was developed for.
