Your Questions About Bluetooth Technology Uses

Ruth asks…

How come my Nokia 6263 won't detect my Bluetooth Motorola h500 ear piece?

The Bluetooth piece works just perfect with my PS3 and my moms cell phones, which are also Nokias. Why won't it work on mine? I turned on blue tooth, and scanned for the device and it just won't detect it.

dknol answers:

Simple, the H500 Bluetooth is only compatible with Bluetooth 1.2- and 1.1-enabled mobile phones. While the 6263 uses 2.0 bluetooth technology.

Paul asks…

What is the potential for blue-tooth technology?

I recon it could help us to interact with fridges, cars, playstations, music stations and computers. The technology may also replace TV remote controls and help people interface with the controls you get in lifts.

Can anyone think of anything else?
Okay, you have me laughing now! My question was perhaps a little ambiguous. When I talk about blue-tooth technology I mean those radio-transmitted headsets you get with mobile phones.

I think they're absolutely great and would love to see whether this technology is the next big thing after the Internet.

dknol answers:

It seems unlikely that when Danish King Harald Blatant united sworn enemies in the Middle Ages he could have ever predicted the influence of his actions or the postmodern use of his name — translated “Harold Bluetooth” in English. Seen as the electronic equivalent to the king's unifying influence, Bluetooth is a new technology that allows different devices from different manufacturers (and, in the case of cell phones, different providers) to “talk” to each other on a shared wireless platform. Essentially an ultralow power radio signal, Bluetooth allows wireless access to certain devices within about 30 feet. This all sounds complicated and, perhaps rather boring, but the net effect of this technology is added flexibility and convenience for those who frequently rely on handheld electronic devices such as phones, cameras and PDAs. According to Michael Foley, executive director of the Bluetooth Special Interest Group, “Bluetooth was founded on the principles of low power, low cost, security and ease of use.”

EASY 10 POINTS: Will the Mac keyboards work with Windows XP?

How about the Mac's Mighty Mouse?

And do all computers have the bluetooth technology for the wireless Mac keyboard?

dknol answers:

As long as they have USB plugs, should be ok.

Joseph asks…

Is a Verizon Jabra 0TE1 bluetooth compatible with a Sprint phone?

A few years ago I had a Verizon phone. When I got it, I got a blue tooth with it. I haven't used the phone since I've switched over to Sprint.
The other day I found the blue tooth and wondered about using it now for my Exclaim. Is it possible to do that or is it pretty much useless unless I had another Verizon phone?

Thank you in advance for any help.

dknol answers:

Absolutely, YES!

The OTE1 – also known as the BT2010 – uses standard Bluetooth technology so it can be used with any other standard Bluetooth device. Remember that you have to put the headset into pairing mode to pair it with your new phone first. To do this, start with the headset off and then press and hold the answer/end button until the light is solid blue (not blinking). Once in this mode, you should be able to “find” and add it as a new device from your phone's Bluetooth menu.

Thanks,
Tom

Carol asks…

Are bluetooth headphones safe to use during flights?

I’m in the process of buying new headphones. Are bluetooth headphones safe to use during flights? Won’t it interfere with the plane’s equipment?

dknol answers:

Check with your carrier. I don't think that a great deal of equipment actually interferes with an aircraft's instruments; the technology has changed a bit. You should check to make sure though, as to their regulations.

Bluetooth is not only in those headsets. It's included in may laptops, PDA's and other equipment as well.
