I could help sending an email to bluesoleil (that seems to be very much on their toes when it comes to support! 5 stars!)
Dear B-O, Thanks for interesting in BlueSoleil.
We are working on the Dialer API for 3rd party APPs, it will be released on Q2.
Regarding Skin, we support part to skin function. You could find all the PNG files and re-design them to be replaced. Folder: …:\Program Files\IVT Corporation\BlueSoleil\BlueSoleil dialer\images\...
Best regards, Eric Xia IVT Corporation

I was looking at the SDK, but what I really want to do is to skin the magnific Dialer! Can this be done?
Just replacing png files are maybe not so fun, but the Dialer API does! Are we inventing the wheel here?
I found them very helpful too and my contact was with Eric as well.
We could just reskin it but I see a couple of problems (and they're not serious).
I assume the buttons have to be in the same place as there is no skin file showing position of buttons etc.
The dialer only has phone functionality. There is more functionality in the sdk (but it may not be useful)
It costs money!
Its not integrated well with RoadRunner (Personnal choice).
But mostly your right in that its not much fun. I've learn't an enourmous amount doing this when I'm not a coder by trade.
I'm looking forward to when they release the phonebook and sms stuff in qtr 2 and will be integrating it into this plugin.
I have a new version with caller id, incall and model / manufacturer labels but haven't released it yet as my chief tester is having trouble. Anyone brave enough to risk it can pm me and I'll send them the new version.
Lambo if I get my BT working again before I go out of town this weekend, I will test for you. I will PM if that happens.
DANGIT! Just when someone comes up with a bluetooth plugin for rr, i check the website and my phone isnt even supported! No love for the Blackberry's :(
I tried it briefly with my blackberry storm and it didnt connect. Course blackberry's bluetooth support is "different" to say the least.. so i really didnt expect much to happen.

i could care less about paying for something if it works...
this gentleman has already written a plugin for this software...lets not ask him to backpedal and have to write a new plugin...
Just a quick update.
Been working on splitting this into two seperate dll's. One for a plugin for rr. The other just as a wrapper dll that can be used by any app to integrate with BlueSoleil. I intend to release the wrapper dll and a little test program to show how to use it in vb.net.
Things going well so far with most stuff working. Just need to redo my mobilephone dll to accept the new plugin.
Problem at the moment is getting th new dll to run on a different pc from my own but hopefully we'll crack that soon.
I've posted the standalone dll now at this thread
Still reworking the mobilephone plugin to use it without bugs.
Just so people know. Tried this and the new wrapper with a Blackberry 8120 over the weekend and it worked fine.
