    Handsfree calling with Android over bluetooth and phonebook

    Hey guys,

    I've been trying to get the handsfree working for a bit and it's not be so good. I can answer calls just fine but dialing out without speaking out the #'s (and even with) just isn't working.

    I noticed in other threads that it should prompt my phone's voice calling system but it just doesn't for my android Evo 3D. Any suggestions? I'm doing

    Handsfree -> Call -> (it responds calling with my phone) -> commands following all go flat.

    Try saying this:

    Handsfree > Bluetooth > Voice

    And then telling it who to call.

    So When I tell it what to call, is it just relaying the voice over to my cell? Because I don't get prompts from my cellphone directly

    "Handfree"-> "Call" is for use with OnStar. That is how I make calls. I believe Xaqtly is right. It may also be "Handsfree"->"Bluetooth"-> "Call"

    hmm, ok I guess i'll try it tonight. It's weird how it says it's calling with my phone though. It just doesn't seem to recognize any of my name attempts even remotely

    Handsfree > Bluetooth > Call (or Dial) does indeed work - but it cannot access the contact list on your Android. However, it is able to access the contact list that you can manually program into the car, independently of your phone book/contact list and as long as your bluetooth phone is paired and connected it will access this list and make the call through your phone. Take a look at the manual - I believe there are 30 contacts/numbers that can be programmed in. You can access these 30 numbers either with OnStar or thru your phone.

    Best regards,

    Elie

    got it. I tried "voice" instead of "call" and that worked. I guess for the more commonly called people I can manually input them in the car in case I use another phone or what not. Thanks guys.
