Default Calling from PC?

Please Login to Remove!

Is there any way by using an application (free) to place a call from a PC?

I have a 8320 Curve and the most recent version of BB Desktop soft 5.0.1 . The device is connected via USB. Im curious if there is any way to use my PCs micro+speakers to call someone the same way like with the Blackberry on me ear (softphone etc.).

Thank U

I used to be able to bluetooth connect my Razr to do this. Was such a pain to do that I never did a real call with it, just test calls.

But that required the software and driver that came with my linksys bluetooth dongle, which doesn't work with the BB. The Widows driver doesn't seem to allow this.
