use active sync move *.cab to

Storage/windows/Startmenu/accessories

and on phone

go to program/ startmenu /accessories and click on '.cab file and it will install

i not have a e200 but that way we install on other phone so it's must work for e200
Storage is like IPSM in other phones.

or you can place '.cab wher you want and use explorer on phone and go to cab file and clikc on it to install

MrMagoo,
Thanks for creating this software. It was real pain before, switching ON bluetooth before driving and switching when not needing it to save up-time.
The software works fine but only 2 things I wished it could do :

1. A way to permanently enable the auto switcher application. Currently, by default the phone closes the last application when a sixth application is opened. So, very likely the auto swither get closed without you realizing it. Suddenly when a call comes in, you start to wonder why the call is not transfered.
I currently copied the .exe file to Start Up folder to automatically enable the auto switcher when switching ON the phone but don't know how to keep it activated with multiple application is opened.

2. Like danch and Paul mentioned, the program swithes ON the bluetooth while using GPRS. Unnecessary drain on battery.

slight update - should be useful for those with gprs problem. not much else.

outgoing calls are still a problem - bt will not turn on until the call is connected for these - which is too late for the headset to kick in - and i can't force headset mode....

I dont see any CAB file. When I unzip the ZIp file, I get BLautoBT.001 and an XML file.

I would really like to use this file.

That's because you are trying to "unzip" the cabfile! Your computer probably thinks the cabfile is a zipfile. Just place the "zipfile" on your phone - and run it to install like any other cabfile....

Edited: Also check out this topic: >>Is it a zipfile or cabfile<< - which helps ya turn off cab association in WinZip

Outgoing Calls don't work ?

I wanted it to also turn on bluetooth for an outgoing call, but something (i don't know what) is turning it off again - you can see the bluetooth icon come on then off again if you watch carefully during an outgoing call (you have to set it to "Start New Call" to see this).

What's the diferents in Incoming Calls between :
Start New Call
Offering
Connected


These are the messages TAPI sends to the program when a call comes in (well - some of them - thare are more but these are the ones i chose to put on the menu)

Start New Call - this is the first event when a call comes in or goes out
Offering - this means there is a call incoming (comes after a Start New Call event)
Connected - this occurs when the call is answered (you pick it up)

You may wonder why i put these on - well partly for testing purposes and partly because i like to offer a choice ...

However my personal preference is to use "Offering" - because i have not figured out how to tell the difference between an outgoing and an incoming call at the "Start New Call" event , and turning on bluetooth once connected is way too late.

Just updated to 1.05 - now has an option to "stay alive" - if it tests out ok i will put some code in to save settings and reload on reboot so that you don't have to keep checking the options.

Cool, good work!

Do you envisage you will be able to get outgoing calls working?

Thanks!

Outgoing calls are only a problem because something is turning the bt off . if i can figure out what is doing that it would be a good start to solving this problem (i could maybe shoot it with a sawn off shotgun or something).

Until then i think we are stuffed!

Hi MrMagoo

I'll give the app a go and see how I get on. I've looked through the trail of messages you have and you don't seem to have been asked this one.

I have a problem where by my bluetooth headset and my bluetooth car kit, while pairing ask if I want to use the device as my 'headset'. So I can't use them both, I have to keep removing the pairing and then setting them up again depending on which device I want to use. I leave it as my headset most of the time now as it's a pain, but it's a shame to waste the car kit.

Any thoughts on being able to switch the 'headset' selection from either my car kit or my headset quickly?. Both devices actually work fine, e.g. they kick in with incoming calls etc. But it's kind of permenantly one or the other if you see what I mean.

Any thoughts, tips, suggestions or changes to your little app would be great! Thanks

Tried the app, outgoing calls problem as you know. I've noticed that my bluetooth symbol stays and I do get some sounds through the ear piece briefly. Curiously even after I have exited your app fully I still can't use my headset. I went into the bluetooth menu, switched it off and then back on again and it started working fine again.

Question : Have you looked at the possibility that your app is not actually disabling bluetooth during an outgoing call, but is actually unsetting the nominated 'headset' device, so it's not sure where to route the sound as apposed to just switching off bluetooth. There must be a registry setting some where which specifies the headset device, maybe.

Kind Regards

I don't - i haven't delved into bluetooth here, I am just using an api call to turn BT on and off.

I also sometimes get the BT symbol staying on even though it is actually off! You can tell it is off because the blue LED is not flashing. This seems to be a bug in the phone's BT implementation as all i am doing is calling the BT on/off api - however I will investigate further to see if I can help to avoid this problem.

Answer: as i said, this app just calls an api to turn on/off BT - nothing more - nothing less.
