Can anyone tell me if the following is possible?

Connect bluetooth headset to the PC (easy part) and recieve audio calls from MSN/Skype (also easy)

Connect my mobile phone to the PC and route the audio out of the headset (not so easy), effectivley making one bluetooth headset work for MSN, Skype and Mobile phone.

Add a landline to the mix (via a modem perhaps?) effectivley turning my PC into a communication hub.

Oh my PC is a Windows XP box and my phone is a T-Mobile Vario, my headset is a Sony HBH-600.

Welcome to Geekzone... Some are possible, it all depends on each individual device you will try to connect.

First the headset: yes, you can connect a headset to your PC via Bluetooth and use with Skype, etc.

The mobile phone: yes, you can connect the mobile phone to your PC and use the PC's speakers and mic as a "handsfree" for your phone.

No, you can't use the mobile phone through the Bluetooth headset via the PC. That's because most software on the PC only allow one connection for sound. In this case, some Bluetooth headsets can be paired to more than one device (PC, mobile phone) and then used directly with each one.

For Internet Sharing, yes it can be done, but it depends on the software you have in both PC and T-Mobile Vario. I think the Vario is running Windows Mobile 5.0, can you confirm?

Hi and thanks for the reply

I don't want to do internet sharing, I was thinking of the modem for voice calls, all routed through the PC, that way I'd have one headset for mobile, VOIP and Landline calls.

So, if a bluetooth headset is out of the question for this, can I use another type of wireless headset with the PC? Failing that, I did not know that some headsets can connect to more than one device at once, I could get a bluetooth land line phone and a headset that supports 3 devices (PC, Cellphone, Landline) but that is going to be kinda expensive.....

The vario does indeed run Windows Mobile 5
