Windows Phone 7 and Windows 7 auto answering calls

Having recently upgraded to a Windows Phone 7 HTC HD7, I paired the phone with my laptop via Bluetooth.

Imagine my surprise when a call came in that it was auto answered, and my laptop was acting as a hands-free headset! 

To prevent this from happing:

 

  1. From within Windows 7 on your Laptop/PC, open up 'Devices and Printers'
  2. Use the context menu on your phone, and select 'Properties'
  3. Open the 'Services' tab and un-check A2DP and Headset Audio Gateway.
  4. Click 'OK'

 

Hope this avoids some frustration!
