I am trying to set up my computer (running Windows 8.1) as a headset for answering/making calls for my iPhone 4S. I have connected my iPhone through bluetooth, and can listen to music and create keyboard inputs, but cannot use Handsfree!

iPhone Bluetooth Connection Page

I have all of the services enabled for the iPhone:

iPhone Services

I don't understand why my PC cannot act as a bluetooth headset, as Hands-free is selected! I have the latest bluetooth drivers installed for my computer. My guess is that it may be two drivers not working correctly (seen in Device Manager):

Could these two drivers (MAP MAS-iOS and Wireless iAP) not being installed be the cause of the problem? I have been searching for these drivers online and cannot find them.

  • I now understand MAP MAS-iOS is for sending messages, so I guess its not that... – Joshua Dec 11 '14 at 10:51
  • It could be specific to my manufacturer's drivers: community.spiceworks.com/topic/… – Joshua Dec 11 '14 at 11:03

It turns out that these features are specific to the manufacturers Bluetooth drivers. I was able to find another manufacturers drivers, and they have hands-free as a function:

  • Whose drivers did you find that worked? – Darth Android Mar 28 '16 at 4:31
