    So after having both my phone and my bluetooth adapter for more than a few months I finally realized I can link it to my address book to do cool things like send SMS msgs, and make/receive calls.

    Logic tells me that since I have speakers and a mic in my laptop I should be able to take and make calls with my laptop and not have to use the phone. I briefly tested this with a friends phone and didn't have any luck. (him calling me and vice versa)

    It should be possible, what's required? Is there a "hands-free" setting I need to turn on in my phone to get it to work?

    How do you do this exactly? I noticed the b/t icon in address book, but haven't been able to "do" anything with it?

    I have a T610 which is the euro version of the t616 i think...

    It should be possible but...I don't think the software exists that would encode and compress your voice and transmit it to the phone, i.e., a "softphone". Ideally it would integrate with Address Book, have a GUI dialpad, but use voice commands.

    I know there are a lot of programmers out there... :D
