Welcome to Geekzone... Bluetooth devices support different profiles, each providing a functionality. Although there some basic profiles that are required, it's up to the OEM/manufacturer to actually implement the ones needed for their product.

The Microsoft Bluetooth stack that came with Windows XP SP2 does not support the hradset profile. I think they wanted something that could be used to connect to printers, mobile phones, PDAs, keyboard, mouse and to other computers... But left the voice functionality for other day.

Your option is to get other product which supports your needs. If you have the Microsoft product because of the mouse/keyboard combo, then the Logitech is a good altenative.
