    I would like to use an old, small Nokia phone as a bluetooth headset for an android tablet such as the Samsung Galaxy, specifically to make and receive calls. I guess if it's possible it would involve using a cheap pay as you go sim in the Nokia phone. I know Samsung are releasing a bluetooth receiver called the HM5000 that pretty much does the same job.
    I don't like the standard bluetooth headsets that you stick in your ears and was thinking it would be a nice to be able to use a standard small phone as a receiver for a tablet, or even some of the larger smartphones.
    Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    Strictly speaking, it is possible. However, your samsung phone probably does not have the software (mainly bluetooth profiles and interpretation software) to support it. So...unless you are a talented hacker, no.
