I had in mind that the secondary phone(s) should be as dumb as possible,
so I dont think establishing network connections to the secondary
devices would be desirable. That would imply a smartphone-level device.

The rfcomm+ogsmd aproach thus seems more palatable.

Does anyone have any recomendations for a simple reliable phone that
would be remote controlable this way?
