Your Bluetooth Questions Answered

Feb 10, 2008
Bluetooth technology has changed how cell phone users communicate. Those distinctive ear pieces are not just an accessory. It allows cellular users to talk using a hands-free device. But there is probably more to it than you might realize.

For example: did you know that at one time it was considered for wireless Internet instead of Wi-Fi? Many states are considering passing laws requiring all cell phone users to use hands-free devices while driving so to reduce the amount of distractions from trying to drive and talk at the same time. Do you have more questions regarding Bluetooth services? In this article we will address some of the basic questions and concerns regarding Bluetooth Technology.

How does it work?

Bluetooth technology works in the same manner as your laptop does when you are utilizing wireless internet. A signal is transmitted and then received by the other device. The signal is sent in packets of information.

The signal is recognized by what is termed "protocols." Most devices utilize at least one set of standard protocols to allow other devices, not of the same manufacturer, to communicate. There are some however that do not use the same protocols so there can be problems when the device tries to communicate.

What providers offer Bluetooth services on their phones?

A cell phone provider is not the one that ensures that the phone has Bluetooth capabilities. It is not an added feature like a data plan or text messaging. Its technology comes from the actual device itself. If you want to be able to use a hands-free device you must check the features on each individual phone model.

Can Bluetooth be used for anything besides making or receiving phone calls?

Its technology has many different uses. You can send ring tones to another phone, or you can send any type of information. The technology is very similar to that of wireless internet service.

Are some cars built with Bluetooth technology already installed?

Automotive manufacturers have long been working with it in order to offer the feature of having a car with a built in Bluetooth system. The first cars rolled off the market in the United States in 2004. In Europe the technology in cars has become far more popular.

The convenience of having it built into the car and having it able to sync up with your cell phone has proved tremendously valuable. As the technology becomes more integrated, the ease of use will increase.
