I currently own the Alpine cda-7897 with the Fantom Face and all the cool looking phone buttons. How can I get these to work with my phone?

What kind of phone do you have?

Its a newer LG, vx8100 to be exact, im so interested to use this feature i would consider down grading phones to get it working.

Good phone, my second choice to my e815.

Is there nothing in the manual? AFAIK, it's similar to using a handsfree kit. When the phone rings, it attenuates your music, and the call plays through your speakers.

You will need both the phone interface and the Nokia phone in order to make it work.

I would just buy the universal Motorola bluetooth kit, and use the interrupt wire. It will work a lot better with your phone, and you'll just be able to use the voice dialing and stuff with the phone in your pocket.
