    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.

    More information: I'm using a Samsung T809 cell phone, and I activate both an Audio Gateway and Serial connection when I try to make the BT work.

    which services did you connect to connect from the carpc to the phone?
    you need serial for the data, like phonebook, button pushes and text messages
    and you need the audio gateway for sound and mic

    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.

    Audio Gateway is also connected, but mic/speakers both don't work. Are there any other settings I have to tweak? Is there any way to choose which soundcard to output to? I have two, but one is supposedly disabled in the BIOS and shouldnt' be seen by windows.

    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

    Not sure if you got this answered yet but this is some software that will help you out.

    I must say that i still have not gotten freephone to work or RRmobile.
    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:

    right click on the bluetooth icon in the task bar, click on advanced configuration, then click on the local services tab, then highlight the serial com port and click on properties, now just check the box that says "start up automatically". now just remeber to always allow connection to your phone from the car pc, my phone (sony ericsson w300i) after i add a bluetooth device asks me how i want to treat the new device, if i want to always ask to connect or if i want to always allow connection, now don't even ask me which one to select cause if you do ask me i will call you and idiot

    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".
