LinuxMCE Answering your Cellphone
« on: September 25, 2008, 02:39:03 pm »
I use my cell phone entirely for phone communication, however, at my home I get fairly low reception.  There are, ofcourse, a few places in my home where my phone gets moderate to good reception.  What would be nice would be the ability to use the Bluetooth infrastructure of LinuxMCE as a bluetooth headset allowing calls to be received from the phone and answered via LinuxMCE anywhere in the house. 

Even if reception was not a factor this would still be a useful feature as it could allow someone to answer there phone in an easier fashion.

Hi, I did a test with in a debian with asterisk and chan_cellphone and it works ok.
Asterisk could easilly answered my calls and also I could use the cellphone line to cross calls to pstn from a voip phone.

This test was done a year ago, and my filling was that chan_cellphone (that was under development at that time), was really great idea and we must to wait some time to use it in a production enviroment.

Now, you can try to compile your own asterisk on linuxmce and try it.
