    I’ve started to use Skype on my laptop. I want to get a USB-to-Bluetooth dongle to be able to talk through a Bluetooth headset (eventually I want to use the same headset with a cell phone).

    Bluetooth headsets usually have an “answer call” button. It works with cell phones. Will it work with Skype?
    Do I need drivers in addition to the Bluetooth stack?
    What are the caveats?


    P.S. I know that there are packaged deals called “Skype wireless headsets”, but IMHO they are overpriced by a factor of 1.5 - 2.0, although I don’t know what’s included on the CD that comes in a package.
