I have my iPhone headset plugged into my Macbook Pro so that I can listen to some proper music and have my Iphone 4 lying next to my MB Pro.

Now, of course, it would be really really fancy if there was a way I could proxy my incoming iPhone calls to my MB Pro via Bluetooth (essentially turning my MB Pro into a bluetooth headset) so that I can still pick up calls with my iPhone headset, even though it is plugged into my MB Pro.

Is there a way to do this?

As of June 2011, BluePhoneElite was providing this feature, supporting a great range of mobile phones, but it became abandonware! :(

Their website is suggesting Phone Amego as an alternative. It may worth to check it out.

I checked out Phone Amego, but found it to be really poorly designed software, almost to the state that it is unusable. The interface is really lacking and I have not actually gotten it to work as well. Thanks for the tip, though! – Aron Rotteveel Aug 5 '11 at 8:10
