Unnecessary Bluetooth in Mobile Phones

Bluetooth is a radio wireless technology that is designed and developed to share different types of data over a short distance, without applying the wires. Bluetooth relies on short-range radio technology to connect your mobile device with other Bluetooth-enabled devices to share documents, images, or other types of data.

This short-link radio technology, named Bluetooth, was invented and initiated in 1989 by Nils Rydbeck, CTO at Ericsson Mobile in Lund, Sweden.

Bluetooth uses the 2.45 GHz frequency for the data transfer up to 33 feet (10 meters) distance.

There are about 5 devices that apply Bluetooth for their functioning. These are Phones, cameras, televisions, speakers, and hand-free devices.

A Bluetooth mobile phone be connected, wirelessly, to any headset to make hands-free calling, easier. This can also be used to send or receive pictures, videos, and data files to any other phone, computer, or any other device that is connected by wireless.
