My simple ol’ company phone has been replaced by a shiny new I-Phone 4S.
Its my first Apple product …… and my first smartphone.
Its pretty cool I guess. I’ve got some issues with their proprietary limitations on what I can do with it. You cant use it’s 16GB storage capacity as a simple flash card without going through their clunky I-Tunes software to transfer files. They’ve threatened to punish App makers that allow it to do what I want it to do.
Of course I’m never gonna buy any crappy compressed songs from the I-Tunes store. But I did buy an App that lets me use the phone as a remote control for my Onkyo AVR. Which will be handy once I get my new outdoor speakers made. It works through the wireless network in my home.
Here’s my problem….. maybe someone here can point me in the right direction. I like to listen to my tunage at home a bit on the loud side. Loud enough that if my phone rings I cannot hear it. I end up missing quite a few calls. With elderly parents and kids starting to drive its uncomfortable to be out of touch.
What I’m really looking for is some way to have my AVR automatically mute whenever I get an incoming call ….. or even have it ring over the speakers. That happens in the Boss’s Escalade and at his house, he claims. Its a bluetooth thing probably. Apparently there’s not an app for it. Anybody know how to rig that up?
