Using Your Android-based Phone With Con-Verse Bluetooth by Rostra®

The purpose of this tech-tip is to force Android 2.2 phones to use the voice-dialing system when the Con-Verse Bluetooth "action" key is pressed. Currently, Android phones will try to utilize action key presses as commands to the streaming audio system and the voice-dialing system. These instructions will disable the streaming audio functionality for the Con-Verse BT3 systems.

The phone will now be forced to treat Con-Verse action key presses as commands to the Voice-dialing system. To re-enable media streaming, follow the instructions again, checking "media" in step 7.

These instructions will not interfere with the operation of other Bluetooth devices.
