Most modern mobile telephones and smart phones have advanced Bluetooth capabilities that allow to operate with the BT Ericofon. For the more 'techies', if your phone has Bluetooth version 2.1+EDR, most probable it supports Hands-Free Profile (HFP) 1.5 (or above), so it will work without any problems.
In general, the BT Ericofon will work with any modern mobile and smart phone. It is impossible to test all the features in all mobile and smart phones, however, here is a summary of the features tested.
(Y = it works; N = it doesn't work; ? = untested; */** = check comments)

"I tried the BT Ericofon with my
iPhone 4 and it was really "Plug n' Play"", mentioned
somebody who owns the BT Ericofon. I think it says a lot.
*) iPhone has 'favorites', not speed dial. The first ten favorites match the first ten speed dial numbers and can be addressed with the Ericofon.
**) Voice commands work very well on iPhone 4, not only "Call <contact name|phone number>", but also other commands such as "What time is it?" and MP3 player commands. Now you can control your iPhone from your Ericofon. :) Check available voice commands for each iPhone model.

The speed dial function wasn't supported and the voice recognition didn't send the audio via the ear piece. I will try soon the new Android phones and update this section.|
