Whenever a phone call comes in I can answer it on my iPad but not on my macbook(2008) running yosemite.

I also can't call my contacts from my contact list.

Any thoughts on this?

Handoff only works with fairly recent Macs that support Bluetooth 4.0.

You can check whether Handoff is supported in About this Mac -> System Report...

My 2011 Macbook Pro doesn't have Bluetooth 4.0, so no Handoff for me either.

I haven't found a definitive list of compatible machines yet, but based on reviews I would say your Macbook is too old to support it.

Several sites are claiming that it works on a 2012 model but not 2011.
