    Hi guys,

    I would like to try the Fresh Rom because of 4g and I hear it has excellent battery life. However, HTC (in their infinite wisdom) has decided that we really don't NEED a way to toggle bluetooth on or off during a call and has removed that button from their dialer.

    Bluetooth, what's that? A bluetooth toggle to be used during a call? No, no one would need that, let's code it out ON PURPOSE! Yeah genius guys, stick to making phones.

    Ok, enough ranting.

    Is there a way to get the vanilla froyo dialer on a Fresh (sense-based) Rom?

    You could try putting the .apk to the rom?

    I'm not sure if this helps you, it isn't about substituting an AOSP dialer into a Sense based ROM, but it might mitigate the need for one.

    When I have a Sense ROM paired to either of my cars, and I initiate a call from the phone, the call stays in the earpiece; it doesn't default to the HandsFree profile. While there is no BT button in the dialer, tapping speaker sends it directly to the BT profile in both of my cars, rather than the phone's speaker, giving me the functionality I'm looking for. I only need to do this the first time I dial from the phone for that particular pairing. Afterward, all calls in the current pairing initiated from the phone route directly to the BT profile. Once the pair is disconnected and paired anew, the first call placed from the phone itself has to be tapped/toggled to speaker again before it will default to HandsFree with the car. Calls initiated from the car's profile always link and default to HandsFree.

    Does that help?

    Hey Toast. Not sure I know what you mean? Is there an .apk that gives me the vanilla froyo dialer for your rom?

    I know that tapping home and pressing the widget button on your desktop to turn the bluetooth on or off is a tremendous amount of energy to spend in your day but that functionality exists.

    also the Sense dialer lets you t9 type in names from your phonebook.

    The bluetooth toggle on the vanilla froyo dialer works differently than the toggle you can put on your desktop. The one on the dialer is MUCH faster and more responsive. Also, it is right on the dialer and far more convenient than having to go back to my homescreen during a call.

    Have you actually used the vanilla froyo dialer? My guess is no.

    This will be the one and ONLY warning. Personal attacks stop now!

    Take a few minute to reread the Site Rules and Guidelines AND the Zero Tolerance Policy (links to both in my sig). I am giving everyone the benefit of a doubt that what was said was said in "fun" and that no harm was intended.

    I see any more of it and a nice 3-day vacation from the forums will be issued.


    Thanks guys :)

    I know exactly what you're asking for as I'm looking for that too! this was available on the Cyanogen Froyo 2.2.1 ROM (as well as some other cool mods like the power controls in the notification bar!) but I was having a few issues and decided to go back to a vanilla 2.2 sense ROM.

    The image above was one that I found on google but it clearly shows the bluetooth toggle that is being requested. On the sense ROMs this toggle button was removed but when connected to a bluetooth headset the option to toggle the call to the internal/external speaker is still available if you press the Menu key during a call (Bluetooth headset:eek:n/off will divert straight to internal speaker or use the external speaker toggle). You can always re-route the call back to the bluetooth headset using the menu option.

    Not ideal as I really liked the simple toggle button on Froyo but if you want to keep sense as vanilla as possible then for now using the menu key during a call is definitely the simplest option. Hopefully that's clarified the question and someone else may reply with something that gives us access to the simple toggle icon! :)
