Hi

Has anyone successfully got asterisk to work with a cheap gsm g/w.  i.e. a phone with BT and bt dongle.

My aim of this is to have a VF prepay phone attached to the asterisk box and bestmate my cell and the wifes with callback.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Is this even possible?  You would need to have drivers for your Linux box to use the Bluetooth device, and then work out the signalling to begin/end a call, plus send the audio through the box.

You'd be better of hunting for an analogue/SIP cellular gateway.

nate: You would need to have drivers for your Linux box to use the Bluetooth device

Now adays linux "just works" with every bluetooth device I have ever tried, and the nature of bluetooth means that if your phone supports a certain profile (say handsfree)  then it will work, you don't need different drivers for every device that you are connecting too.

It has already been done.Haven't tried it myself though, but have thought about it...

That's really cool, had no idea you could use a mobile phone as FXO/FXS. Thanks filterer.

It can definately be done, a 2N unit is overkill for my system at home :)

I think celliax can do it.  Just gotta work out the hardware.

I haven't played with this for well over a year now but it used to be very hard to configure and get working but once you had it sorted it worked well.

The other cool thing was that it allowed you to answer calls to your mobile from a regular phone and there have been plenty of people develop proximity based scripts which allowed you to divert calls to your mobile automatically when you leave your desk and then disable this when you return.

There is a guide here for trixbox which is pretty straight forward.

I've got that working for my SIP trunks and IAX trunks.

I have a Nokia e61 dual phone and it works a treat when I get into wifi range of home, and defaulting to use the asterisk box for calls.
