THOUGHT: Does Running Voice 2.0 supports the Compaq Wireless Pack?

You know that I like the Compaq Wireless Pack but not the original Wireless Pack GUI. So one thought I had when I got the Running Voice GSM 2.0 Beta was if version 2 would supports the Wireless Pack now. As Running Voice GSM 2.0 supports the Option GlobeTrotter GPRS card there is a chance that it is supported because the wireless part of the Wireless Pack is indeed the Option GlobeTrotter card and here we go for the result:
The Compaq Wireless Pack GUI The same Wireless Pack but with RV 2.0

As you can see, Running Voice GSM 2.0 supports the Wireless Pack now! :-) However, I have to say, that I have the latest non-public Wireless Pack firmware on my jacket and so I'm not sure if it also works with today's commercial Wireless Pack firmware too. Anyway - HPaq is working on a new firmware for the Wireless Pack which should be available soon for download too.
On the other side, don't forget that the Wireless Pack will still runs in the background, you can not "overflash" the Compaq GUI with Running Voice 2.0 so you still have to enter the PIN on the Wireless Pack Voice Center. Also such settings like the band switch between 900/1800 MHz and 900/1900 MHz have to be done within the Wireless Pack. This isn't supported (today?) by Running Voice 2.0.

Anyway - that's real good news for all of you out there with the Compaq Wireless Pack who looks for an alternative to the Compaq GUI... :-)

i wonder whether this version works with Nokia 8910. i tried the version 1.1.1; it dose not work.

@Imk: Please see this thread in the Forum regarding the Nokia AT commands.
I'm not sure if this is fixed in v 2.0 but the fault is on Nokias side, not on Pocket Presence's...
Alos the 8910 isn't listed as the supported cell phone so I don't think that it works...

But the Compaq Wireless Pack software still handles incoming SMS and Voice calls, correct?  Running Voice can't pick those up right?  Or can it only pick those up if the iPAQ is also turned on when a call/message is recieved?

@Adamz: Yes, you are right! RV GSM is for outbound while the Wireless Pack is still for the inbounds. That's what I mean with it still runs in the background. Anyway - from here it could become a shorter way to fix this to... ;-)

is it possible to generate DTMF tones with the wireless pack ? I need them to divert all calls to voicemail with Vodafone and it seems that the Compaq sw is not able to do it...any suggestion ??
