Existing Android App - needs debugging of Bluetooth Features.  App works with a server side component in PHP.

Android App has 2 'feature sets' of bluetooth that are not working correctly  (or need improvement)

1. Audio.  
App was designed to automatically play its audio output to a bluetooth headset, earpeice or other similar device without user intervention.  When the app is running (resident) it seems to interfere with the phone dialer audio.

2. Bluetooth ID detection + connection
We need a reliable method of detecting nearby bluetooth devices - specifically other phones, using the phone's broadcasted bluetooth ID.  ie  the bluetooth id that is 'broadcast' to nearby devices.

+ we need a method of  doing this without intervention by either user.
+ we need a method that avoids requiring phones to be frequently forced into pairing mode.
