I have tried using my bluetooth mono headset with skype mobile but it never worked. does anyone know if the bluetooth stereo headset will work with skype mobile? because I wanna buy a plantronics voyager 855 instead of using the wired headset.

or anyone had any success with okta touch? any idea on how to use bluetooth with skype ?

if anyone has any experience please share it here.

thanks!

I doubt it will work - and not's a problem with the device, but the software. You could try using Fring, which supports Skype and works with Bluetooth headsets.

I have a plantronics mono bluetooth headset, but it doesn't work with either skype or fring. fring doesn't support outgoing audio when making skype calls from my okta touch, maybe because the processor is qualcomm and unsupported by fring. do I need a stereo headset instead of mono?
has anybody got any idea?
