    Anybody resolve this connection between Yosemite and iOS 8, while trying to make a call from the Mac?

    No, but I get this error too. Not been able to get it to work at all. MBA 13' 2011 + iPhone 5, both on latest betas.

    Handoff doesn't work either. Or Airdrop. Only thing related that's working is SMS syncing, which is just an internet/iCloud service.

    Anyone had any luck with my hardware?

    Same issues here. But brand new 15" MBP and iPhone 5s. Seems strange that the latest devices would not work.

    I can't get any of it working either, but I believe we need it to be connected via bluetooth, which I can not get it to connect. If you turn on the hotspot then connect via bluetooth, it seems to connect but nothing works.

    From what I understand, if the devices are new enough, have Bluetooth on and are logged into same iCloud account, they should Automagically connect. If I restart both my computer and iPhone, I see it start to work, then seems to stop working as soon as I try to do anything like make a call.

    Strange... From what I read, these features require Bluetooth Low Energy, with both of your devices seem to have... Have you been able to get handoff to work? The Dev Preview 2 is claimed to have fixed that...

    I have an older iMac i3 mid-2010 and an iPhone 5s, and I have only been able to get SMS working.

    Has anyone figured this out?

    When I first got iOS 8, I was able to use Handoff and WiFi Phone calling. Now, no luck at all.

    I have a 2013 iMac and an iPhone 5. They are NOT paired. I've tried to get them paired, but it fails every time. However, I don't think they NEED to be paired as someone said previously...
