    I have noticed that with the most recent Yosemite update, iPhone voice calls work over Wi-Fi, and even though my Mac does not have BT 4.0, I can still use the voice call feature now. Text Messages always have worked.

    Nice surprise :apple::apple:

    Works on my 2011 iMac too. Uses FaceTime app. As long as you have iPhone Cellular Calls turned on in FaceTime on your iPhone and mac, it should work. You also need to set in up on your mac and make sure your phone number is checked on "You can be reached for FaceTime at:" on you mac under FaceTime preferences.

    SMS was the only thing I cared about. I almost went and updated my VT adapter... and then yosemite found my phone and told me I could forward texts. Exactly what I needed. Glad I didn't get trigger happy and buy hardware I didn't need!

    Mine works on MacBook Pro late 2011 but only if I use the iPhone headset. Just fuzzy when I use the Mac speakers and mic. Is that normal?

    Looks like the mic in your Mac might need servicing
