Hi, I recently purchased a new Sony Vaio VGN-S46GP Laptop from overseas and I've been interested in using the inbuilt bluetooth from the laptop with my Jabra BT200 Headset to run Skype.

I have managed to successfully connect the Jabra headset to the computer, when i open Bluetooth devices in Control Panel, I can my see mobile phone and the jabra handset listed. However if i click on the properties for the Jabra BT200, and then go to services, there is nothing listed. With my mobile phone device, there are however a few different type of services available.

From my understanding, I should be able to connect the bluetooth headset as an audio device, and then go from there to setup skype with the recognized bluetooth audio device. Is there something i havent yet done to be able to select the Jabra Headset as an audio device so i can use it with skype? Thanks in advance.

I don't think the Sony Bluespace software supports the headset profile. It may be that a new version does it, but I never heard good stuff about this software.

Ahh.. and to think i purchased this laptop thinking that its internal bluetooth device would be handy..... Is there anything i can do to use the internal bluetooth from the laptop with my jabra headset? Perhaps some other type of software would do the trick?
