Just keep your iPhone in your pocket. I had an issue where it stopped working for me and would not make outbound calls using my iPhone. I followed the step by step instructions and even spoke to someone on chat. They fixed my problem quickly. I did get an error when I did the recommendation for the Terminal commands but once I rebooted it worked! Love it! This really should have been native functionality.
I also have had an issue where, intermittently, incoming calls will not ring on the laptop and I have to use my cell phone. I would also like an option to dial a contact from my mobile phone but place the call via the laptop speakers and mic. Would be nice if you could push the call back and forth between the laptop and the mobile for when you might need to pick up the phone and walk to get something.
