    How to get to handsfree HFP bluetooth profile with WIDCOMM SDK

    Dear All,
    Please do not offer PhoneControl.

    With Sasmung T809, Nokia 8800 Sirocco, Siemens phone, I got handsfree to work fine.

    In Windows XP, one can handle incoming phone calls easily (PC works as handsfree). WIDCOMM 5.0.1802 is in use. On incoming call, you just click on bubble in right corner, and voila, you are on the phone.

    It would be nice of Having simple GUI more convenient than what is present.

    I looked into WIDCOMM SDK, and there is almost no trace for HFP (handsfree) profile handling. Broadcom did not publish handsfree class in SDK.
    So what would be an 1/2 hour task becomes much more difficult.

    WIDCOMM driver definitely supports handsfree. There is no ActiveX control with SDK installed unfortunately, so you can also not do this.

    Any programming hints how to manage HFP and access Bluetooth stack?
    M$ Platform SDK may be - what header?

    Yes, there is a way to reverse engineer SDK and WIDCOMM driver libraries, but it is out of scope. I would rather buy hardware solution for this.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have asked broadcom for few extra header files. All necessary HFP classes are in SDK libraries already.

    Still waiting. For eager ones, just get out export list of DLL, and symbols with DUMPBIN from library. Thus you can build a header .. and share it with community.
    And of course you can dial the support and eventually get to support department.
    They may be reluctant to disclose CBwtApp and stack interface, but I see no big deal disclosing HFP profile classes.
    They done so with other services. I suspect they think not to many people interesting to evaluate it.
    They may want to include it in next SDK release.
    If marketing get involved, it is a real mess than. They will decide forever. For engineering, they are pretty reasonable, calling them up may work actually.

    I have a disabled son and I want to create a special GUI on his wheelchair based computer to give him access to a cell phone via HFP. Did you figure out how to do this?

    Do you know anything about BlueSoleil bluetooth stack?

    My preference would be to use Widcom if I could.

    Thanks in advance for your help

    Hi Tim,

    I had some experiments with Widcomm. It is not a push-button solution.

    Have you seen Blueant http://myblueant.com/ , there were other similar devices. May be it can be an option ..

    What kind of computer do you have for your son? Did you try to contact manufacturer, what do they say?

    I tryed basic usage of BlueSoleil with setup, were WidComm was working, and basically, with no luck.
    Nokia PC Suite was also installed, so it could have caused a conflict. No luck with BlueSoleil.
    I also looked into SDK headers. It has no HFP (handsfree profile) access methods published,
    there are some left-overs in the header though. It may also be a limitation of Eval version.
    My phone is good old Nokia Sirocco 8800, dongle is Broadcom.

    Sorry I did not look into this thread for long. PM me if you need a quicker response.

    Still nothing on this topic?

    I want to get a HFP application which I can integrate to Windows Media Center. This will be useful to pop-up a dialing screen when receive/make a call...

    I haven't dig into the Broadcom SDK yet, but I read the Windows 7 bluetooth stack will add this support out of the box.
