I wanted to setup a headset for my work VOIP phone calls from my laptop. I already had a Jawbone headset for my cellphone, why not use that?
Literally all I had to do was:
- make Jawbone discoverable (when powered off, press the black shiney section with raised lettering, until the LED starts alternating Red/White)
- on Mac, in Bluetooth menu, “Set up Bluetooth Device”, pick “Headset”and walk through the dialogs to find devices. Enter passcode, which is defaulted to ‘0000’.
- in Skype, preferences dialog, audio tab, set the “Audio Output”, “Audio Input” and “Ringing” options to each use the “Jawbone” menu item.
- in SJPhone preferences dialog, audio tab, set the “Output” and “Input” options to each use the “Jawbone” menu item.
That was it.
It all just worked first time, and was literally all up and running in two minutes. It would have been even faster except I had to dig up the instructions on making Jawbone discoverable! It took me much longer to write this blog post, but thought this info might be useful to others.
For the record, I was using the following:
- MacBookPro running OSX 10.4.11
- Skype v126.96.36.1990
- SJPhone v1.60.299a
- Jawbone headset(!)
