Phone Gateway (via bluetooth)?

Post by AviMarcus » Sun May 16, 2010 5:26 pm

Hi, I'm wondering if I can integrate my cellphone into my current sip setups. The in-calling has a large number of minutes included, so that would be really helpful.
I see 3 boxes -

http://www.smithgear.com/itc-bt.html
http://www.myxlink.com

...that all link via usb or bluetooth to a cellphone. However, they only provide a POTS out, and are priced over $100. (The gigaset says something about PBX but I can't find any more documentation than that.)
Is there a way to set it up similar functionality on my local windows machine? I don't need it always on- when I leave the house, I'll take the phone with me.

Any ideas for software?

Asterisk (asterisk.org) has a Bluetooth gateway or at least it used to. It doesn't run easily on Windows but if you have a spare PC you can run Linux on or a virtual machine on your Windows box and put the time in you will end up with a very powerfiul solution.

Regards,

Wow, old post. Thanks, I'm pretty sure FreeSWITCH has something too. I haven't looked into it recently...
