You can use Phone Amego with Bluetooth cell phones that have been paired with your
computer. You can monitor upto 8 cell phones at the same time for Caller ID, and select which
one will be used for dialing. Click here for more information on configuring Bluetooth to "pair"
To add a device, Press + below the Telephone Devices table, select the kind of device you want
to add, and then press Attach Device.
It is possible that your phone offers more than one service that matches the Handsfree (HFP) or
Serial Port Profile (SPP). I recommend choosing the first Serial Port or Handsfree Gateway
listed. If that doesn't work, try the others.
Once a compatible Bluetooth service is selected, Phone Amego scans to see if your phone is
turned on and within range approximately every 30 seconds and will connect automatically as
Phone Amego works with many Bluetooth phones such as those by Nokia, Motorola, Sony
Ericsson, RIM BlackBerry, Google Android, and Apple iPhone.
I have tested Phone Amego with these phones:
Apple iPhone 1G with OS 3.0.1
Motorola RAZR v3
Sony Ericsson TM506
RIM BlackBerry 7290
Customers also report success with these phones:
Google Android (T-Mobile MyTouch)
BlackBerry Storm 9530
Sony Ericsson K13i "TXT"
Phone Amego uses the Bluetooth Handsfree Proflie (HFP) to connect with many Bluetooth cell
phones. To your cell phone, Phone Amego may appear as a handsfree headset. When a call is
answered, your cell phone will try to route the audio to your Mac. If you answered the call from
your Mac, Phone Amego will accept the audio connection to become a handsfree speakerphone.
If you answered to call from your cell phone, Phone Amego will redirect the audio back to your
cell phone (by closing the connection). Some cell phones may try again to send the audio to
your Mac or get confused. If you need to restore the call audio, reset the "Audio Source" to be
your phone, or enable the speakerphone feature on your handset.
Many phones support the Bluetooth Serial Port Profile (SPP) in addition to HFP. If you connect to
your phone using the SPP, there will be no attempt to re-route the call audio to your Mac. In this
case, you may be able to use a Bluetooth headset (HFP) with your phone along side Phone
Amego that is using the SPP.
