    If bluetooth is on Android should connect to any paired devices by itself. Tasker doesn't have a facility for connecting specific bluetooth devices.

    If anyone figures out a way to get Google Voice SMS or Gmail working with Tasker, please post your profile here? I would like to use the SAY option in Tasker to read out the sender and subject line, or announce the message from and content, but those functions only work with the standard text app or K-9, neither of which I use.

    Other that that missing function, I have everything else working perfectly. This is one of my favorite apps.

    Just had a look in settings, I have Bluetooth on all the time and it says:

    Blaupunkt paired but not connected
    Pauls Macbook paired but not connected

    I have to physically touch the connection that I want to connect to, which defeats the object of Tasker. Will have to look further into this, not much time left to get it sorted.

    This is exactly what i need. I have it set up to send a text and it sends a text back with the location. What i want is when i send a text to also lock the phone too. I can't figure it out. Anyway you could post how you did this??

    You need to buy this plug in:
    Locale Password Lock Plug-in - Android app on AppBrain

    Then you can enable the password lock and set your password using the tasker profile you already have.

    Hello, I have an EVO which has HTC weather set to sync every 3 hours. Is there any way to force a sync at a specified time of day with tasker?

    I have the app, for some reason Password Lock comes up whenever i havent used my phone for awhile. Id like to have it set so that password lock only comes up when i send a text. Is this possible?

    In your settings is the password lock off? Mine only comes on when I send the text. Then I have a 2nd profile set up to turn the password lock back off after the password is entered correctly.

    I figured it out. It was my settings. I had it turned on. Now i have it set to when i send a text, then it turns on. But i havent figured out the turning off part after the password has been entered. Thanks

    Thanks for the "missed" tasks. I've looked at the locatephone profile on the wiki but, I believe yours may be a little better. I hate to impose but could you post your locate and siren profiles?

    I would, but I don't have any locate / siren profiles - I use Pintail for locating.

    I have profiles for both of those that also password lock the phone if you would like me to post them. I got both of them from the tasker wiki, then made a couple modifications.

    I have a question about how to prioritize tasks in Tasker.
    I have my Home context set to turn wi-fi on, etc, but i also have a night profile, from Time A to Time B, where i have the phone on silent. and turn wi-fi off.
    However, Tasker tends to run both profiles simulataneously (Home/Night)
    Is there a way to set one to override the other?

    Its awful simple, but most people (especially iFolks) seem jealous of it. I used the "Generic Toggle Widget" profile from the Tasker Wiki site and modified it. Here's what it does...

    The widget label changes from Normal to Pillow. I got tired of the Display Rotation changing to landscape when I use my phone when lying on the couch or in bed. I want it to stay in Portrait for those situations. All my widget does is toggle the Display Rotation setting... simple but useful.

    Edit: OK, so now I realize that this is technically a task widget and not a profile... Don't lynch me please.

    Whichever profile activated most recently will have priority. If you're already home at Time A, then your night profile will kick in and its settings will be in effect. However, if you arrive home after Time A but before Time B, the Home profile will kick in and its settings will take effect.

    Assuming your night profile is named 'Night', you could try adding the following context to your home profile to prevent it from becoming active (or remaining active) when your night profile is active:

    Context: Variable Value %PACTIVE Doesn't Match *Night*

    For this to work, you would have to have no other profiles with the word 'Night' in their name.

    Thanks very much UncleMike - I will try that out.

    I have a profile that forwards my phone to home, when I'm home. Because I want it to do so only while at home, as close as possible, and forward back to phone forwarding as soon as possible after I leave, I have the context based on hooking to my SSID of my WIFI.

    Now, the problem is that when I am home, and if I have my phone in my pocket and wander outside (I'm a wanderer :p ), it may forward to my voice, and 5 seconds later back to home. May do it over and over in teh right circumstances.

    I'd like to be able to pause for 20or 30 seconds after it loses connectivity to my SSID, and if still not connected, then forward to my voice mail.

    Here is my setup now:

    Context: WIFI Connected to my SSID
    Entry Task: Forward to home; Say "Fowarding phone home"
    Exit Task: Forward to VM; Say "Forwarding to Google Voice"

    Any suggestions on best method to accomplish the pause, or re-check before doing the forward away from home?

    I'm having a problem with my Wifi profiles. I've tweaked it a few times, but I still can't get it to work right. I simply want my phone to keep wifi turned off unless I'm near my home or work connection, and to turn it on and connect when I am near one of those connections. I've had it set up several ways, using the Wifi near context, with "toggle wifi" on, with it off, with the task as turn wifi on, with it as toggle wifi, with an exit task and without. I'll think it's working for a while, then I'll be miles away from my connections and the wifi will be on, or I'll be sitting in my house and it won't come on. WHAT am I doing wrong? All my other profiles work like a charm.

    I have only got mine to work right every time this way:

    My "Car" profile has the following exit tasks:
    -Turn wifi on
    -enable Home Wifi profile
    -wait 2 minutes
    -Turn Wifi off - if - %ATHOME !~ 1
    -disable Home Wifi profile
    -Clear Variable %ATHOME

    Home Wifi Profile:
    -Wifi near (Home network SSID)
    task: set variable %ATHOME ~ 1

    Thanks, I'll try that.

    I would:

    Name the profile (if it's not already named)

    Add two actions to the beginning of the exit task:

    Wait 30 seconds
    Stop If %PACTIVE Doesn't Match *profilename* (include the asterisks)

    If the profile exits, and reactivates within 30 seconds, the exit task won't do anything.

    If this doesn't work, let me know. I'm having a problem with using something very similar to exit a task, but it SHOULD work.

    Has anyone come up with a solution to the battery charging issue with the Incredible using Tasker? Would be extremely grateful if I could somehow automate a bump charge or some other fix. Thanks.

    Hi Uncle Mike...that works, although I was surprised in how it works. What it does is it recalls the Entry Task. So, it forwards to home again, even though it is already forwarded home. That is better than before.

    I am guessing that not much can be done about that, because the task has exited, albeit not running all items in that, so it needs to re-enter. Maybe something else with variables, but I suspect I would risk having it ultimately get confused, so to speak, and possible not have the forwarding where I want it.

    I'll need to do some searching in their documentation and see if I can find more of those variables.
