    1st sets up the phone line as automatic dialing using contacts>actions>call contact>new call where selecting dialog options, click line properties>general connections click the tabs (options) select the connections options which is sets earlier. In the same way you can set the location wise auto dial. Either you use speed dial (hope so) or calling card that depends on you.

    When both your systems and your phones bluetooth are switched on then In Devices and Printers you will see your phone. Just double click it a window will appear from where you can transfer files from and to your phone. Use it to play music from your phone and listen from computer speakers. Likewise you can dial a number and voice chat from computer like skype.

    If it's that easy to use your computer as a phone, how do companies like Vonage, Magic Jack and others make any money? IF I can use my PC for free why would I pay 24.99 a month ? Am I missing something ??

    I think there is some misunderstanding. PC just provide different interface to use you phone.
