Can I use my cellphone bluetooth headset as a mic on my PC with a bluetooth dongle

I would like to make phone calls on my PC using Skype and my cell phone bluetooth headset.  Can this be done simply by buying a bluetooth dongle for my PC, and connecting my headset to my PC using the dongle?

I have a Nokia BH200 bluetooth headset.

You sure can. The bluetooth device manager will allow you to search for the headset and allow you to use it even as headphones. This has been tried and proven.

If you can get the two to pair up, you can use it.  Do not throw away any of the packaging for the dongle, if you havent purchased it yet, cuz not all are created equal.  I have been using this method to speak through MSN.  I am not using a dongle anymore, rather the BT interface that my MS mouse uses.

Thanks guys...  Does it even matter if I get a v1.2 or v2 bluetooth dongle, and does anyone recommend a certain dongle or a Microsoft bluetooth mouse?  Thanks again, Jon
