Hello everyone,
Hope someone knows if this is possible or of any app that allows this.

Is there anyway to make Leopard act as a headset for bluetooth enabled phones?
Ie. I'm out and about on my Mac and I get a call, instead of digging into my bag to get my phone can I use the mic and speakers of my Mac to do this on the phones behalf?

Thanks in advance.

On a crusade to get all household electricals in Apple white!

I'm intrigued to try this. I suspect it will depend on the phone and the services it allows via bluetooth. I'm going to try it with my Macbook and N95 tonight.

However..... I think you'd still need to use an earpiece of some description or you'd end up with feedback where the macbook microphone picks up sound from the speakers.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup

My Macbook works just fine with programs like Skype so I would hope for the same results with a cell phone..... Must give it a try some time.
At the moment I am trying to get my Plantronics Pulsar 260 to work as a wireless headset for discrete movie watching......
