USB Bluetooth dongle problem Windows 8 Professional

Reply Fri 4 Apr, 2014 03:21 am

I have a problem with USB Bluetooth dongles on my laptop that works with Windows 8 Pro edition. My laptop is Dell Inspiron 5520. It comes with Intel Centrino Wireless-N 2230 Bluetooth. Before upgrading to Windows 8, my laptop worked with Windows 7 and the Handsfree Profile was present so I could make phone calls from my phone using my laptop. After the upgrade, actually a clean installation, the driver for the bluetooth didn't support any profiles except file transfer (my phone is Samsung Galaxy S3). Then I bought a bluetooth dongle that works with Broadcom drivers and I can play music from my phone on my laptop but still I can't use my laptop to make calls from my phone.
My question is whether you can recommend me some bluetooth dongles that provide this functionality and it works on Windows 8.
Thank you in advance.
