Default Using Blackberry as Mic/Speakers

Please Login to Remove!

I'm trying to sync my BlackBerry Pearl with my laptop and use the BlackBerry as the speaker/mic for it. I know that I can get it working the other way around where I can use my laptop to talk over my phone but I'm trying to do the other way around. Any suggestions?

It might work better with O/S 4.5, when that releases, because that adds Bluetooth 2 to the 8100 - you'll also want BT2 on your notebook.

I don't think the functionality you're looking for is something you can accomplish with lesser versions.

Default More info please

You're the first person to reply with some intellegent info. Thanks...

What I'd love to have is a software package that emulates the Car Phone features from my car. I could dial from the PC and use it as a speakerphone. Right now, I can't get any sound from my phone out of the PC (its sync'ed with BT2 but I don't know how to get to the next step.) Any recommendations of a site that might help me would be GREATLY appreciated...thanks...s

I haven't been here all that long myself, but certainly, welcome to these forums.

Would you be happy with a third-party product doing the just-like-a-car-kit trick?

Com One makes a portable BT stereo speaker that fits that description - it's stereo and BT2 again.

Several of the clip-on-the-visor BT car kits can also work indoors to give you your speakerphone function.

But, if you don't mind me saying so, I think you're in that equip-me-now frenzy that we all experience early on.

Everything changes.

The O/S 4.5 upgrade will be downloadable in just a few weeks - summer's end at the latest - and with that comes BT2 support.

Of course, that's almost the same timetable as the BlackBerry 9000 Bold, the lust for which can drive a sane man crazy and throw caution - and money - to the wind.

Your eagerness now for the PC-as-speakerphone trick will seem trivial when even newer passions boil your blood.
