hi together,
havent tested this little tool yet (playing around with a p900 at the moment;-)). is it really quicker that pressing & holding the home key, pressing 3 and switching bt on or off?
cheers, lutz

<{POST_SNAPBACK}>


I dont mean to ask silly questions but what key do you mean when u say the "Home Key"? i always thought the only way to switch BT on was through the menus??

Cheers Folks

The one with the House symbol that takes you back to the homescreen.
Press and hold it and up pops a quick-list.

Ah, there's the problem!
This is an MS Smartphone forum, so the answer works for MS Smartphones, but won't for a P900

Try www.my-symbian.com or www.esato.com for more help with the P900

AFAIK most P900 Tracker skins had Bluetooth shortcuts on them, and if you don't use Tracker you could always assign one of the shortcuts at the top of the screen to get you to the settings quickly.

I've also written a Bluetooth toggle app that does on and off (which is what I needed)...I've done a version that switches between off / on / discoverable. It just runs without displaying any UI at all - so as others have suggested, the best way to run it is to add a Speed Dial entry for it (I choose 28 (BT)) for it. I've attached both versions to the message. Unzip the file, then run from the PC over ActiveSync to the device. Note that the apps aren't signed, so you will get a security dialog.

This is great .

I just think it would be greater if you could assign it directly to home key(i dont use gprs) or any other key like green / back hold mode.
Dont get me wrong its already goood and i like it :D

This utility provides a very quick and easy way to turn Bluetooth on and off.
Run it and it will toggle BT from off to on and from on to off as appropriate.
The only indications of it working are a) The word BTToggle appears in the title bar at the top of the screen (briefly) :D the bluetooth icon will appear/disappear in the title bar as appropriate.
If you use a home screen with the mru plugin or the orange shortcut plugin you can have this easily accessible.
Installs a shortcut to Accessories section of start menu.

I got the BT Toggle to work on my SMT5600. I just copied the file to the the main Explore screen using ActiveSync, and then clicked an ran it on my phone. You find should find it under the Start/Accessories folder on the phone after it installs. Then it's easy to add the speed dial option. I picked lucky number 7 because Bluetooth rocks!

Thanks for the application!!!

It would be great to be able to press a button from the home screen which turns on BT and intiates Activesync connect via Bluetooth.

Is this possible with this app?
