General :: Select Contact On Tablet - Initiate (dial) Call / Talk On Phone

Jun 6, 2013

The Situation or: what I'm looking for:

1. Nexus 7 with Google Contacts app
2. Non-android phone (Nokia N8 etc.) or really any dumb phone paired to Nexus 7 via bluetooth.
3. Select phone number from Contacts on Nexus 7 -> connected phone dials the number
4. Talk on phone.

As I have a very extensive and nicely organized list of contacts in my "People" app (Google Contacts) on the Nexus 7, I would just like to be able to select a number there and have the bluetooth-connected dumb phone place the call, so I just need to pick up the phone and talk, not dial the number manually on the phone.

Right now, when I select a number in the Contacts app on the Nexus 7, Skype - of all things - starts and wants to dial that number apparently. Instead of Skype, I want the number to be sent to the connected bluetooth phone. Surely that HAS to be possible somehow?

Even though this should only require a simple ATD command to be sent out via bluetooth and it's a functionality that every automobile bluetooth setup can do (dial from the steering wheel etc. -> connected phone places the call), I couldn't find one single, small app that does that.

In the PC world, this is sometimes known as CTI (computer telephony integration), basically you dial a number on your Windows PC (e.g. using on-board "dialer.exe" or using Outlook, and your phone places the call). So now I'm basically looking for a simple, one-way TTI (tablet telephone integration).

I did find Tablet Talk, which looks very nice, but this one needs a client software to be installed on the phone, which therefore has to be Android, so it's unusable for my case. I'm pretty much looking for a universal solution here, i.e. Android tablet to any dumb or smart bluetooth-enabled phone (or even another android for that matter), which, given that bluetooth is a universally specified protocol, shouldn't be much of a problem, in my limited understanding.

From my point of view, to problems or "routines" would have to be solved/written in an app that does this:

1.) Get the Google Contacts app ("People") on the android tablet to send numbers via bluetooth or to our "middleware app" (to be named) instead of sending those numbers to the Skype app (which might just be a quirky configuration on my Nexus 7, but it illustrates the use case).
2.) ATD command to phone via bluetooth, sent from the tablet

HTC EVO 4G :: Ability To Initiate A Call On Phone And Transfer Call To Bluetooth

Jun 20, 2010

A feature I miss on my Palm Pre was the ability to initiate a call on the phone and transfer call to bluetooth in my car or vice versa with the single click of a button.

I'm really having a difficult time with the Evo regarding this issue. Once I start the call on my phone, how do I transfer the call to my car without hanging up and calling through the car?

My "internal" memory is almost filled up and i am trying to find a way to move apps such as games to "external" memory. Some apps i have tried failed because all they did was direct link to the "move to sd" option in settings which is obviously not available on my tablet.

I have rooted the device, i have titanium backup (which failed as well in moving them). It came with the 4.2.2 android.

General :: Dial Immediately When Touching A Contact?

Oct 3, 2012

Replaced my Droid X with the RAZR M.

How do I create/edit a contact so that SMS/Text is not an option for a number. I want to hit that contact and have it immediately dial. Some contacts I imported from gmail are already like this but new contacts always have phone or text as the options so I have to select the phone icon to actually dial.

Problem came up because the default voicemail app keeps trying to sell me Visual voice mail. The default Voicemail contact number is not editable so I can't add my pin. Finally deleted the default contact and added my own. So far so good except it always wants to know if I want to send a text?

HTC Droid Eris :: Dial List Sesnsetive - This Way Started Call By Accident People That Did Not Really Want To Call

Feb 17, 2010

When you want to make a call - you press the phone button and the phone dial buttons pop up and on the top some names from the contact list. You can roll down to get the full list of contact names to select from...

My problem is that this dial list is too sesnsetive : it is enough to touch a name and puff it starts dialing right away. This way I started call by accident people that I did not really want to call. Can this smart dial be made less touch sensetive. Or better: an option when the phone will respond "do you want to call this person?" or something

General :: Bluetooth Headset Call Button On Android Tablet Does Nothing

Jun 19, 2013

My girlfriend has a Nexus 7 and I have a Hisense Sero 7 Pro. I have one bluetooth receiver in my car and another bluetooth headset. When either tablet is conencted to either bluetooth device, pressing the call button does nothing. I have tried autovoice with tasker with no luck. Is there anyway to get these tablets to recognize when the bluetooth button on the bluetooth devices is pressed? I notice in the menu in settings for each bluetooth device that there is only the option for "use for media audio" and not "use for call audio." If this is the reason is there anyway to modify jelly bean 4.2 to add the use for call audio option?

General :: Talk Notifications - No Talk App Installed

May 26, 2013

I am using IMO for Instant Messaging and so i removed the TALK app from my Nexus one (running Oxygen Rom) using Titanium backup.Recently there was an update in TALK app and i wanted to try it (Hangouts) so i installed it from the playstore. It was very slow on my mobile so i removed it again.

Now i am getting Talk notifications (with the old TALK icon) in the notification bar. along with the IMO notifications. When i click on the Talk notifications it does not open any app. and the messages that are notified by TALK are missing in the IMO app so its very frustrating.

So i thought it must be the HANGOUTS app and re installed it from the Play Store. Now i get Hangout notification, Talk notification and IMO notification. I removed the Hangouts app from the Application Manager and i still getting the TALK notifications.

Android :: Can't Select Contact On Platforms 2.0 And Above

Sep 8, 2010

I am having issues having the user selecting a contact via the Intent "ACTION_PICK" with the URI "People. CONTENT_URI" for Android platforms 2.0 and above.I create a new intent with the action "Intent.ACTION_PICK" for the URI "People.CONTENT_URI" -- from there I send a managedQuery to get a cursor with the contact information I need, which is the contact's name, and contact's phone number for the contact that the user selected.This works well on platforms 1.1 through 1.6. However, on platforms 2.0 through 2.2, this method no longer works for me. 2.2 - can't see the contact's phone number. 2.1-update1 - same as above. 2.0.1 Can't see contact or phone number at all. When the intent is invoked, the user is encountered with "You have no contacts" even though he or she does. 2.0 - Same as above.Should I be doing something different for platforms 2.0 and above? I've searched around but to no avail.

General :: Emerson EM543 Tablet - Call Lockscreen From Linux Command Line?

Dec 1, 2012

Running Android 4.0.4 on Emerson EM543 Tablet. Could not install Google Play so had to install Android Market. Market apparently somehow disables the Android system LockScreen. So, now trying to get lockscreen back on boot (downloadable apps, as far as I can see, don't lock screen at system boot, which is what I want). I got a terminal emulator and was wondering if there was a Linux command line argument I could use to start Droid lockscreen at system startup.

I thought I was getting close with this solution, [URL] ....., but it is for an HTC Amaze 4G, and I can locate the AdroidManifest.xml files in the apk files on my system (using ROM Toolbox Pro Root Browser). But, even if I could figure out how to do it there, that file would be changed in the very next update. I am looking for a something similar, just need to know the xml filename or a command line argument that could be used in a startup script.

Motorola Droid :: Google Talk - Contact Did Not Receive Your Chat

Dec 2, 2009

Is anybody else having a problem with google talk and receiving a "[somebody] did not receive your chat" message whenever you try to IM somebody? It happens both on my Droid and in the chat client in gmail. The reason I'm asking here is that it only seems to be affecting my buddy and me and we both have Droids. Our friends who don't have droids can talk to one-another, but any message to or from us have issues. Could be coincidence but I thought I'd ask.

Android :: Quick Contact Link For Talk / Chat Does Not Work

Nov 4, 2010

I have a relatively new EVO 4G, and I've noticed that for some reason trying to chat with a contact using Talk and Quick Contacts doesn't work. When I pop up the Quick Contact for a person who's online, I see a second dialer icon. When I press that, it gives me the option to use various chat methods, including Talk (and Skype). However, when I choose Talk, it asks me to "Complete action using" and gives me a huge list of things, but none of which are Talk.
