Hi,
I want to use my nokia 7610 mobile phone as a headset with my bluetooth enabled computer.

I was wondering how to do that. Please advice your thoughts on that.


Regards,
Vishal

I dont think the phone can act as a headset in this situation. I have had success with Windows Mobile PDAs doing this though.

No, cannot change to windows mobile.

Actually I did it the other way around, using th PC as a 'headset' for the phone... just by searching for available devices, it found my PC, and called it an audio gateway or something...

I've tried both with my Nokia 6230, Audio Gateway works (PC speakers and mic) but it does not work the other way around as most phones lack the proper bluetooth profiles.

No its completely different. Skype is an app that communicates with a server or other Skype Client, using the pocket pcs network connection and audio functions. It doesnt interact with the PC at all...

*off topic*

Talking about skype (probably doesn't apply to this handset)...
I guess one can put a skype call to the desktop, but I think thats as far as you'll get.
