    Such a plugin would be welcome, as I want to migrate to RR.
    I use Phonecontrol.net in Centrafuse, it has the best features by far, but it only works when it feels like it. In CF 2.0 it's replaced with bluesoleil, and that doesn't work with what I have, a BCM94025-something usb dongle with Widcomm drivers.
    RRmobile, as I read it seems like it was abandoned unfinished.
    As for Freefone, I found it to be the most simple and stable plugin, however, it lacks one of the most important features, like voice transfer. Using it is as dangerous as using the phone itself, since after dialing you have to raise it to your ear, and risk causing an accident

    I would also be willing to contribute to a more solid integration for bluetooth.

    I have been having problems using bluetooth in RR. I have the widcomm drivers for my bb dongle, but would be willing to switch to whatever gets integrated.

    My problem i think has to do with the widcomm bluetooth stack. Everytime i get a incoming call it auto connects to my phone, doesn't even ring.

    I was really looking at car kits to see if that would be a better solution for now as there is no way i want incoming calls to autoconnect everytime i'm in my car, but then again it would be very nice to have everything integrated into one system as opposed to have a seperate car kit bluetooth.

    So, i am also for integrating something specific into rr.

    I have used both the widcomm and the bluesoleil stacks and found that Blue Soliel works a lot better. As far as my machine goes anyway. The widcomm was a major resource hog and worked very slow and froze quite a bit. While blue soleil seems pretty stable only screwing up in CF when I answer the phone on an incoming call.

    looking at bluesoliel website, looks like they have a dialer prog that does what we are looking for, has anyone played with this yet?

    Actually thought of this. I was working with han AutoIT script that may be able to integrate the dialer with RR. But it will take some work and time is something I am pretty short on lately.

    for what its worth i have CF + bluesoilel and although it works, it's effectively un-usable as the echo + delay is terrible.

    I've done everything CF recommended including buying the bluesoilel BT dongle and the exact sound card etc they recommend..and it is still terrible and un-workable.

    I'll be honest and say i'm a little annoyed as they market it as a workable phone hands free solution and it really isn't.

    from my research with bluesoilel/IVT/CF, it seems that the problem is with the BT stack, so IMHO i wouldn't waste too much time + money on this yet as there seems to be a fundemental problem that needs to be overcome. I wont bore on about the amount of different BT dongles/ sound cards and even different PCs i've tried, but needless to say the final answer from CF was "we're awaiting another update from IVT (bluesoliel)"

    I would like this to work. I just picked up a Blackberry Curve for Verizon and a USB bluetooth dongle and I would like to intergrate a plugin into RR on the Digi-FX skin. Subscribed!
