    Need icon to indicate Bluetooth ON or OFF

    I have Spb Phone Suite. I don't want to install Phone Alarm. I am looking for a program that will display an icon in the system tray to identify if bluetooth is on or off. When I am driving, I don't like looking at the LED for several seconds until the blue light blinks.

    Yeah I wish SPB Phone Suite had better indicators in that regard. I wonder if if it could be displayed in the top bar with the other connection icons (wifi, EV, 1X)

    Amen! I know that someone had come up with a way to put phoneAlarm in the top bar, but I also read that it was buggy that way.

    Here's a little Today screen App I recalled seeing that might fit the bill for jfourman ..

    Thank you MGuzzy and onlydarksets. Both of these will meet my needs well. I am going to start with the Today Plugin because I want to position the indicators just below the Spb Phone Suite Plugin (which is where these indicators should be in the first place). I have been considering trying Pocket Toolman 2; but for now, I'm going to use the KISS principle to get only what I need.

    Thank you both.

    I'm trying PocketToolman 2, but I can't get it to show the BT icon in the tray at the bottom. I've found the option for it, but the option is grayed out so I can't select it. Any idea why?

    EDIT: I notice from the PT website that the BT icon option only is available for devices that use the Microsoft BT stack. Does the i760 not use the MS BT stack?

    I thought I would throw this in here... Since I've had to resurrect my i730 recently I realized I had made a custom skin (I modded someone else's skin a little) for Phone alarm. I was looking for something very useful with a small screen footprint. The bar at the bottom (from left to right) profiles, missed calls (red), voice mail (red), text messages (red), email (red), and the status of the Bluetooth (blue) and Wifi (green). Also when I tap on the "i" on the right I get system information pop ups.. I may go back to it but I'm giving SPB phone Suite a try for now...
