Anybody knows if this is possible?

The scenario is: I am riding my motorcycle and listening to my tunes from my iPhone. Suddenly a call comes in. Does the iPhone handles it? I mean, switches me from listening music to the incoming call and puts me back to music when the call ends?

A positive answer will be much appreciated? :cool:

Steve Jobs demoed this exact thing during the keynote. I highly recommend you check it out :).

Basically during the keynote Steve was listening to music when a call came in. The music then paused and he answered the call. After the call was done, the music picked up right where it left off.

Well, then that feature alone will be a good selling point with the biker crowd. I can have the cake and eat it too.

Thank for you reply.

A key point there is that your riding your motorcycle. How much physical interaction is required? I also recall something about the inability of bluetooth to handle wireless musice due to the power requirements over long a given length of time. So, your listening to your iPhone via wired headphones, a call comes in, you answer vocally via a mic bud in the headphone line, then resume when your done?

Being a commuter on both my Bicycle and my motorcycle I was also thinking about this while I was watching the Keynote.

if you are running the stereo headphone with the intergrated mic it will do excactly that, but I do agree.

I was also thinking about when the iPhone wired into your car playing music, when the call comes up & the music drops out it will be like a poor man's bluetooth running through your car's stereo as well.

I don't know much about the microphone headphone thing but I do know that the iPhone automatically switches to and from music and calls. What I find cool is that it goes back to exactly where you were before. Ah, the little things in life! :D

With a Bluetooth Mike/earphone sticking in your ear and setting the phone in auto answer, it does the trick. I have done it and works fairly fine. Mind you the key here is to use a "full face" helmet otherwise wind and engine noise makes it very dicey(no such thing as a quiet Harley). In the case of the iPhone the project becomes a little more complicated. First, you want to keep the "stereo" so a regular "wired" headphones is the answer for that part. If the "call" comes in then you are faced with the problem of the "mike". Something will have to be figured out to adapt that situation. Oh well, I am sure I'll think of something.

I'm so excited about this feature. I currently have a Treo and it has a lot of issues with this. It usually freezes up and I have to restart it. It has worked a few times, but its not consistent. I can't wait to get an iPhone!
