Buetooth handsfree calls on PinPhone
I've never been able to get Bluetooth audio to work. I have Mobian installed on the eMMC but have tried a few others on SD cards.

A wired headset works fine but at least with Mobian there's a quirk where you have to plug the headset in after starting your first call or the microphone won't work.

Another issue is that at least with pulseaudio the volume controls don't work during a call. Switching to pipewire gets the volume controls to work but then audio routing goes down the drain, the phone loses track of where audio output should go, so for now I stick with pulseaudio and no volume control.

On the other hand, bluetooth does work for keyboard and mouse.

I chalk these problems up to Linux audio in general being a real rat's nest.
