    Other than to turn it off?

    The CallBar tweak, which replaces the traditional outgoing/incoming call screen with a bar at the top of the screen, works wonderfully in freeing up your screen while on the phone and still maintaining full access to in-call functions such as speaker, hold etc.

    However, when I have it turned on for outgoing calls, and I attempt to make a hands free call in my car, it kicks it off Bluetooth.

    Any idea how to fix this? Thanks.

    No, but I am guessing here that you are either on Verizon or Sprint, right?

    The two models of iPhone for those carriers cannot do voice and data at the same time. So, my speculation is that you are making a call and since this is the case Callbar is thus shutting off Bluetooth.

    Purely a guess here and if you are on AT&T which has an iPhone model that allows both voice and data then obviously it's something else.

    I am on AT&T. It switches to CallBar for outgoing calls and kicks it off Bluetooth however does not do this for incoming calls. Not sure why exactly.

    OK, I was just guessing. No idea why it would do this. I have Callbar as well and have never experienced that. However, I don't use Bluetooth so I can be completely sure.

    Have you tried emailing the dev through Cydia?

    Actually I accidentally deleted my Cydia app when trying to uninstall an app. I've been searching for his email online but can't seem to find it. Do you still have Cydia? Could you possibly get me that email address?

    You can reinstall Cydia I believe. It's a DEB package that you place in a startup folder. Might ask in the jailbreak section.
