BTW, speaking of this, I've given up on trying to get my BT to work for now, but maybe you'll have some insight.
I used the links you supplied and followed your directions and was able to finally get some communication between my computer and phone. (thanks)
Here's where I gave up:
Speakers/microphone: Do not work, ever. I have two cell phones and have called myself to test this, but there is no way I could get the either my voice to play on the speakers, or my voice to be heard from the other phone from my computer mic. My volume settings are all correct and unmuted..
Freephone: Able to dial out. CANNOT detect incoming calls (windows intercepts it). CANNOT access phonebook/etc.
Phoco/RR: Can't do anything. I think at one point I could intercept calls, but it was a while ago and maybe it never happened.
Unfortunately, the other phone is not BT compatible, so I'm currently under the impression that my phone is just not compatible enough (it should be though, it lists audio gateway / headset / many other BT modes in the phone).
Got any insight into this?
PM means "Private Message." He had to remove the links for legal or other reasons. You have to send him a "Private Message" through the forum and ask him for the links.

which services did you connect to connect from the carpc to the phone?

Serial is connected and I believe it works, because windows detects incoming calls and I can make outgoing calls through Freephone. It doesn't work entirely, because I can't access my phone book or anything.

you could always select the default sound card in the sound settings in the control pannel, you can select the mic and mic volume aswell
is it possible to auto-connect the Audio Gateway whenever my phone is within distance. or do i have to do this every time manually (which is bad because i tend to forget:-)
i have yet to figure that one out, mine sometimes connects automatically and sometimes i have to do it manually.

I'm having the same problem as most.
i can make calls but i can't end.
I can receive calls and hear them through the speakers but i can't make calls and hear them through the speakers.
Thats about how far i've gotten so far.
well on the receiving and making calls issue i don't even know where to start, but good news is that i found out how to auto connect phone to pc when the devices come to distance of each other, here's how:

this worked for me everytime i get into my car i just turn the key and everything is automatic, just make sure you don't let your friends borrow your car, i did and when my friend was dropping my car off to me at work he said the music suddenly stopped the screen said "phone call" and all he could hear was m girlfriend saying "hello, hello".
