Bluetooth connectivity

About Bluetooth connectivity

With Bluetooth connectivity, you can make a wireless connection to other compatible devices, such as mobile devices, computers, headsets, and car kits.

You can use the connection to send images, video and sound clips, and notes, transfer files from your compatible PC, and print images with a compatible printer.

Since devices with Bluetooth wireless technology communicate using radio waves, they do not need to be in direct line-of-sight. However, they must be within 10 metres (33 feet) of each other, although the connection may be subject to interference from obstructions such as walls or from other electronic devices.

This device is compliant with Bluetooth Specification 2.0 + EDR supporting the following profiles: advanced audio distribution, basic imaging, device identification, dial-up networking, file transfer, generic access, generic audio/video distribution, generic object exchange, hands-free, headset, object push, phone book access, serial port, and SIM access. To ensure interoperability between other devices supporting Bluetooth technology, use Nokia approved accessories for this model. Check with the manufacturers of other devices to determine their compatibility with this device.

Features using Bluetooth technology increase the demand on battery power and reduce the battery life.

When the device is locked, only connections to authorised devices are possible.
