Blue tooth laptop - is there a wireless skype phone that a headset can be attached to? > Laptop has blue tooth.



Hi - client asks ..........

I've just noticed I have Bluetooth installed on this laptop.  Does that mean that I could use a Bluetooth headset and talk online - like through Skype or similar?

I'm desperately trying to get a way of speaking through headphones so my hands are free to type or write.  I bought a phone that you can attach a headset too but the headsets aren't made anymore so the guy is looking for an alternative - a month later and no result!!

it's not about the headset but you need a software to interface a headset to your pc then use to skype
look at this program it had all feature to interface a bluetooth devices (printer , fax , headset , ...etc) to pc
