How to make/receive phone call from a laptop connected to smartphone through bluetooth? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Dear Windows 7 IT Pro,

    I have a smartphone (Samsung SCH-I759) which I would like to connect to a laptop running on Windows 7 Professional so I could make/receive phone call on the laptop.

    Having been browsing around, I saw several methods on doing it are fairly simple. Turn on the bluetooth connection on both devices, pair them, and set the service on the bluetooth connected device menu.

    When I follow these instructions, I did manage to pair the devices but the option of using the bluetooth connected smartphone as a phone does not appear. Instead, I have less available services on the menu.

    For those who have been successfully pair and use their laptops as phone, would you care to share the how-to?

    Thank you,

    Nala Jati
