Is it possible to use my MacBook as a bluetooth headset? I would like to connect my phone to my MacBook via bluetooth, so that when calls or SMS come into my phone I get notified on my MacBook, and ideally be able to read the SMS and reply, and talk and listen to the calls through my MacBook.

Is this possible using bluetooth? Or even better using WiFi?

This used to be a feature of Apple's Address Book application, but it was removed as of Mac OS X 10.5 –  bneely Jan 26 '12 at 2:49

Get Phone Amego from the Mac AppStore. I was looking for the same thing this morning and it worked great! It was very easy to setup.

I haven't tested this, but I've heard that Phonecall Wizard can do this from a thread on Apple Support Communities: Can my Mac act as a Bluetooth headset?

As for over Wi-Fi...I doubt it. For Android, it wouldn't be too hard to make such an application, but I failed to find one. For iOS, there's no chance when you consider Apple's strict guidelines for App Store applications.

You can do it. There is an app called BluePhoneElite. With it, you can receive and send call, sms. You can even import and save your call lists and sms.

But it was discontinued. You can get it at Softpedia.

But as the product was discounted, I am not sure whether the app will work with iOS. The phones supported were WM and Symbian at that time. I have added a link to download. –  Pratika Rana Mar 28 '13 at 12:48
