I know that the bluez folks removed support for BT telephony. after 4x. you wont be seeing any mic as an input BT device. so after mint17x no mic.
They bleated that a module would have to be written downstream presumably by pulseaudio or pavucontrol.
Thing is after waiting 18x 19x still no module.
In 17x the BT worked flawlessly with or without the broadcom BT driver hcm update.

Could we expect an update in 19x. ? wishlist? Can a module be written if the hsp bandwidth is no longer available for input.?

On days that I need BT telephony I keep 17.3 as a bootable option. I do most of my work in 19.2. Makes for a clunky workday.

Hi winoseti.

Install (if necessary) and run PulseAudio Volume Control (pavucontrol.)

On the Configuration tab set the Profile for your headset (I'm assuming that's where the mic is in your case) to HSP/HFP or headset_head_unit. Then the mic should work via Bluetooth.
