Hi All,

I am pretty new to bluetooth, but have been monitoring this forum to get some tips. So far it has been very useful .

Basically what I would like to do is to use my mobile as a 'handset' for VoIP calls. In my mind this means my mobile effectively becoming the speakers and mic to my broadbanded notebook. Note that I do not have a separate BT headset, but I suppose that I want to use my T610 for this purpose.

My setup is as follows: -
XP Pro (SP1) Notebook
Vaio BT Dongle (CSR firmware 355 I think)
SE T610

The widcomm stack installed without issue, recognises my dongle and appears to be working. Pairing of devices works in both directions without issue.

However when I initiate the audio gateway on the notebook, a connection is made to the phone, which then displays 'after the tone say the voice command' > 'no match' > BT connection dropped.

I'm not sure if this is the right way round but wanted to try it anyway. I was wondering if anyone has tried this or similar and can suggest a few tips/tests to try out mainly for VoIP but eventually more advanced notebook remote control.

Thanks in advance.

Did anyone ever get an answer to this one? I've heard that it is possible to use the T610 in this way but darned if I can make it work!

Hi Simon,

I received your pm's... I'm afraid I didn't get anywhere with this. I ended up getting a sipura adaptor and use a digital cordless phone for voip calls.

Think I'll just have to wait for a mobile/voip combined handset to come out.

Thanks! There's a company in the UK that offer theT610 and a dongle as a VoIP phone but they are very cagey as to how it works unless you buy the phone and dongle from them. And since I have a T610 and my notebook has bluetooth built in........

So what's a sipura adaptor? Does it connect an ordinary phone to the USB port?

I'll check out that website (I'm in the uK).

The sipura is a network adaptor that plugs into your broadband router and allows you to plug a normal phone into it. You can configure the sipura to register to voip providers and then use the phone to make (voip) phone calls.

Very cool if all you want to do is make cheap phone calls (without turning on a computer and putting on a headset)

I'm UK based although living in Poland at the moment. What VoIP service do you use in the UK? At the moment I'm using Skype but I like the idea of not having to use the computer - this is the future of telephony.

If you signup for Stanaphone you're assigned a valid US phone number. You can then use one of these phones discussed before on this thread (or a Pocket PC or your computer) and not only place calls but receive calls as well. It works really well.
