Hi everybody!

I want to write a program that would allow someone to dial a number from their computer which would then use a Bluetooth connection to dial the number on a Bluetooth phone and transmit the call back to the computer so that one would be able to talk through a headset connected to the computer.

I know this may sound ridiculous, if I want to be hands free I can just get a Bluetooth headset and bypass doing it through the computer, but it just something I think would be cool to have.

I looked online and couldn’t find any programs like what I’m describing, however it could be that I didn’t look hard enough and that there are programs out there.

Any suggestions on where I should start? What language I should use to write the software?

None of the Bluetooth earpieces I've had came equipped with numeric keypad, so it would be hard to dial with them. I did use one to voice-dial, but that required audio-recognition on the phone. Supposedly my Android phone has voice dialing, but it's using a remote host and won't let me use arbitrary sounds to dial.

One possibility might be to use a phone that's been set up as a modem to relay tcp/ip telephony (Skype or something like that).
