Using bluetooth to make my landline phone ring with my cell phone

I am new so please bare with me. I have a Galaxy 3 which I hate but I was in an accident and my sister bought it for me. She just went to AT&T (my carrier) and asked for the best phone. Until I buy a windows phone I have a question about bluetooth on this phone.
I also have a Panasonic KX-TH1212. With my windows phone I simply activated bluetooth entered the password and pushed hte link button on the cordless landline phone. After that I could answer either phone without any problem (cell or landline). I tried the same thing with the Galaxy 3. When I go to Bluetooth under settings I see both the base unit for the landline phone and the Galaxy 3. I pushed the link button on the base unit and entered the password on the Galaxy 3. It came up with "paired" so I thought I was home free. However even though it says "paired" the landline phone never rings. However after the call it does say "missed call". Am I doing something wrong or is it possible these two are just not compatible.
Thanks for any help you can provide.
