    I was just wondering if you could use your normal phone as a bluetooth headset with your mac?? I dunno maybe this is a stupid question! Forgive me if it is! Thanks! :eek:

    By 'normal' cell phone, what do you mean? If you've got an iPhone or other cell that can run apps (Windows mobile, etc.), check out Fring.

    Allows you to use your cell itself to connect to Skype, many of the messaging programs, etc. As long as you have a nearby wireless connection, it's just like using Skype on your computer.

    No is the short answer. Skype does not support the required bluetooth protocol.

    You may wish to check out skype phones that don't require PC (www.dualphone.net) or placing free calls from cellphone (www.truphone.com)
