I've got a blackberry, I've got a PC with speakers and a microphone. Can I (either Bluetooth or USB, USB Preferably), use the mic and speakers attached to my PC whilst making calls via the blackberry. In effect treat the PC as a handsfree kit for the Phone. I've found software that lets me control the BB (Impatica ViaDock) but the calls still use the BB for the sound elements.

Anyone know of any software?

I am not aware of any such software. If your looking for a hands free device, just go with a bluetooth headset, i.e. something like a jawbone.

got one, but whilst the phone is sat charging on USB, and i'm sat on main PC it would be nice to be able to talk freely, also they make my ears sore where they sit.

Thanks, spent too long searching today so far, so thought i'd punt it out there, seems to be something that should be able to work. You used to be able to dial through the modem a long long time ago.

I've got a parrot in the car for handsfree in car and its great, should be possible in software as all of the hardware is present. guess i'll just have to use the supplied cabled mic and earphones.

Unfortunately, again, I'm not aware of anything that you could use. I'll keep an eye out though in my daily browsing of the BB sites though;)
