    Yeah, as I said, if you "want to use a headset or external bluetooth speaker/mic".

    Even though I normally cant use 2 bluetooth devices connected to the phone at the same time, it works with this app. The headset also connects every time to the phone. Auto start if you activate bluetooth on the phone, etc, all works fine. MUCH MUCH more reliable than Bluesoleil. Even works over WiFi, if you dont have bluetooth.

    I dont see a problem putting the headset on your ear when you want to call someone or are called. The much bigger problem is the PC muting/resuming and being able to dial from the PC or access contacts. But this app allows such functionality.

    What hardware/software do I need to buy to get the BlueSoleil solution to "work"?

    I see their dongles, but at $50 was hoping that isn't what is necessary....

    A cheap China made mini BT dongle works well, but name brand BT dongles fall short of features for some reason. Intel brand BT/WIFI modules don't work at all with BlueSoleil.

    Perfect. Being a NUC I had to buy a BT/Wifi and bought an Intel one.

    Awesome, WAY better than buying a $50 from Blue Solei which I thought I had to do. THANK YOU.
