iBook as bluetooth headset

I have an iBook 800 combo and a sonyericsson t68i. I connect them via bluetooth and everything works perfect. I got internet connection and the connection with my adressbook works also perfectly.
The question is: can I use my internal microphone and speakers to use my computer as a kind of headset. sounds stupid, but would be perfect for my working environment. thanks in advance, mario

If you were using lets say video chat with audio, your speakers/microphone would work as a headset. I don't know how well that microphone will pick up your voice if you do not talk into it.

What exactly are you trying to do? I can give you a better answer after I know what you are trying to acomplish.

Ecaxtly what you described with iChat....
I can pick up my phone via Adressbook. But once I've picked up I have to take the phone to my ear to use it.
I just thougt, based on the fact that my computer has a working bluetooth connection to my phone (like a bluetooth headset...), speakers and microphone, I could use the iBook's sound devices to make the phonecalls, just like you use a bluetooth headset.

In order to do this, the Mac would have to support the headset or handsfree BT profile as the client, which it doesn't.
