    Ok very new to the forums here. Have done A LOT of research on the the topic and cant find any results.

    I would like to use an iPad to remotely connect (lets say via bluetooth, or how ever else you think could work) to an iPhone so I could use the iPad as a "remote control" to make calls on my iphone but use the ipad as the dialer or to browse the address book. For example if I mounted the iPad in my car and wanted to use the big screen as an easy dialer for my iphone with maybe a bluetooth headset or bluetooth connection to my cars handsfree calling system. Does anyone think there is anyway possible to do this? maybe via a program like Real VNC connecting the two via wifi? I have no idea if this is even possible but i thought it would be an awesome idea. Maybe even use the ipad to view and send text messages via the iphone too!

    I'd love to head your feedback on the idea.

    so i've done more and more research, still cant find anything. Biggest thing i want to do is initiate a phone call (from my iphone) or send/receive text sent to my iphone but view/send from the ipad. Anyone?

    Just got the same idea today.
    Did a Google and landed here.
    Maybe writing an app using bluetooth might work. Since Bluetooth integrates into the call handling on the iphone.
    Or maybe build a separate gadget for handling iphone calls with a large screen.
    Hmmm.. interesting

    Want

    This is a really interesting topic that I have wondered about for a while. It doesn't seem like that complicated of an idea. Where are the developers at? Let's get a VNC app to control iOS with iOS.

    Same here!

    Same here...meant to Be I suppose...eventually they'd take it a step further and allow Retinapad to constantly upgrade the view at almost full screen. What a beautiful thing that will be. Any updates? Find anything?
