I just saw AndrewZ’s comment in response to the question posed by zlotowinfo.
Has anyone had any experience running the chan_mobile channel driver? I’m thinking of dipping my toes in the water as I could see it could be quite a useful solution to route my mobile calls via Asterisk (and also maximise the value of my monthly mobile call allowance).
I’ve been googling away and there a few articles like the one on voip-info.org which highlight key implementation decisions (in terms of compatibility and functionality), such as:
 Choice of bluetooth dongle
 Latest supported version of bluez bluetooth utilities and libraries
[*] Supported handsets
I’ve also read on asterisk support forums that a minor patch (to chan_mobile.c) may be required for this to work, although I think this relates to Debian-based installs, rather than CentOS.
For info I would be recompiling Asterisk to install the channel driver. I’m running * 22.214.171.124 on FPBX 126.96.36.199 running on a CentOS 6.2 x86_64 box. Im considering buying some MSI BToes 2.0 EDR Micro Dongles as they appear to be the most compatible on the list in the voip-info.org article (they are also pretty cheap to buy here).
I’d be pairing up to either an iPhone 4S or a BlackBerry Curve 8900. I’m also lucky enough to have a Vodafone SureSignal (pico cell repeater) installed so my mobile signal is quite strong.
Any tips or thoughts?
