    I had put my Bluetooth headset on and was trying to make a call over Skype. I can confirm that the headset was connected, but during the call, I was unable to hear through the bluetooth headset. I could only hear the voice from the phone speaker. I tried playing around with the settings during the call, but it did not help. I can confirm that the bluetooth headset works properly as I was able to use it over a regular voice call

    What do I need to do in order to enable the bluetooth headset over Skype?

    If you connect the headset before you run Skype, it should work. If not, there's a little Bluetooth emblem in a circle - press that, then press Bluetooth.

    If you run Skype, then connect the headset, it's not going to work. Skype picks up the available devices when it starts running and if the Bluetooth headset isn't connected when it starts sunning, it won't use it. (Considering what you get for what you pay, I'm not complaining.)
