I’ve been looking for a Bluetooth plugin for Asterisk for a while, so my home Asterisk server can pick up incoming calls to my cell phone and route them onto my home phone network. I’m certainly not alone in this–it comes up monthly on the Asterisk-users mailing list.

It looks like the wait is nearly over–Theo Zourzouvillys announced a bluetooth driver for Asterisk this morning. It’s apparently still rough around the edges, and it’s only been tested with a single model of phone, but it works for him now, and the Asterisk community is pretty good at picking up things like this and enhancing them.

I’m going to play with this this weekend and see if I can get it to work with my T616; if so, it’d be a nice addition to my home phone system.
