My Okta touch always automatically answers a phone call if I leave the blue tooth coms on. It is very annoying as if I dont hear the 1 short ring then I dont pick it up and the person calling cant leave a message and they end up talking to nobody. Does anyone know if I can do anything about this. Is it an Okta issue or Windows 6.1 issue?

IIRC this is not an issue - just a configuration setting. Depending on your ROM configuration (original or not) the setting will be on Bluetooth Properties - look for the connection to the headset.

Thats great news if I can just change a setting. If I go to Blue tooth settings (settings - connections - bluetooth ) click on the head set I still dont see any access to change any properties, only to create / end partnership. Any more clues? Thanks Supreme Bean

Not exactly sure if you simply want to turn of auto answer totally for any headset?  If so, the answer may be to go to settings>phone (not bluetooth) .... click on "more" tab  ... you will see the heading "automatic pickup" and can untick the box next to "headset".  I'm assuming this will turn off the auto answer completely and may be what you want?

Thanks for your help. Thats exactly what I want, I only use the blue tooth for the hands free in the car, and I can easily push the answer button on that when it rings. As always the answers embarasingly easy once you  know!
