A Bluetooth® cell phone allows a user to easily transfer data to and from their cell phone without the use of wires. It allows users to use their cell phones hands-free, with just a small headpiece in their ear. Bluetooth® technology has revolutionized the use of cell phone technology, and is available on most phones.
Bluetooth® technology works through a very weak radio wave frequency. The low frequency prevents interference from other radio waves, but makes long distance connectivity difficult. It is used in hospitals, video game components, and even in drive-through fast food places. There are even Bluetooth® hearing aids now available.
Cell phones that have been equipped with Bluetooth® technology make it easy to talk hands-free. The cell phone can be in your pocket, on the car seat next to you, or sitting on the counter a short ways away. A Bluetooth® cell phone can also enable voice command features on a cell phone. It is possible to send pictures from a cell phone straight to a printer. Appointment schedules can be passed between personal digital assistants (PDAs), cell phones, and laptops.
Some home phones also come equipped with Bluetooth® technology. It is possible to share your contact list on your cell phone with your home phone. A Bluetooth® cell phone can also be set to automatically forward calls to a home phone line, if the home phone is also Bluetooth® enabled, whenever you are at home.
Car kits can allow a Bluetooth® cell phone to have a more hands-free options. With just a push of a button, it is possible to carry on a conversation while driving without a headset. Most also automatically mute any music playing to accept or make phone calls without touching a button.
A Bluetooth® cell phone can perform a lot of services that regular cell phones can’t, without needing wires. It is possible to play music from a Bluetooth® cell phone. It is even possible to use a Bluetooth® connection to use your cell phone to access the internet on a Bluetooth® enabled laptop. As more and more states enact bans on talking on a cell phone while driving, Bluetooth® has become an almost essential component of cell phones.
