Get incoming calls and messages and contacts from a phone

Wed Apr 08, 2015 4:10 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to connect a raspberry pi to a mobile phone and be able to make and receive calls, see the received messages and see the contact list (much like a car media center) using bluetooth.

I found that it's possible to make calls using HFP, but now I want to get access to the contact list and the last messages on the phone. Is that posible? How the car manufacturers do that?

The wikipedia page for Bluetooth profiles is a good place to start

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Bluetooth_profiles

Uses MAP for reading messages
and PBA for reading contacts.

Knowing those terms give you what you need to search for.

Thank you very much. I didn't knew that!

I'm now searching around that and I don't find much info about that. Let's see what I can get...

I haven't found anything that I wanted on that time and ended up doing a completly different thing, not involving a rapberry pi at all, and moving to android :|
But now it could be easier because you already have a bluetooth 4.0 module on the RPi.
