    So I have a cordless phone at my desk. The landline/phone jack is in another room and calls are forwarded to my cordless phone. I would love to be able to use a bluetooth headset with the cordless phone. For audio only I know I can just plug in a bluetooth transmitter to the headphone jack in my cordless phone but that won't solve the issue of being able to speak back into it and the phone receiving my voice back. Please help!!!!!

    Hi, and welcome to TSG.

    Have you confirmed that the jack on your cordless phone is for listening with headphones only and does not work with a corded headset with microphone?

    You say you have a Bluetooth transmitter. Is it really only a transmitter or is it both a transmitter and receiver?

    Yeah that’s true my guess would be that the jack is set up for both. So my fallback option is to just get a plug-in headset, but I’d love to get wireless. It seems like they make Bluetooth transmitters & receivers in one but I’ve yet to see one that works as a headset/microphone without specifically changing the device between transmitter to receiver and vice versa. For some reason I can’t find one example of someone using one of these devices seamlessly as a headset and microphone at the same time.

    I couldn't find anything either.

    I would have thought that when cell phones started to include internal Bluetooth connectivity, that Bluetooth headset manufacturers would be selling adapters to add Bluetooth to older cell phones that used corded headsets.
