Bluetooth Technology And Wireless on Cellphones

Bluetooth technology and wireless on cellphones are fast becoming standard features. Almost 55% of cellphones sold worldwide are Bluetooth-enabled, and an increasing number of smartphones are wireless-capable.

Isn't it annoying when you want to email someone your latest holiday pics and they're stuck on your cellphone?

There is no need to struggle with files stuck on only one device (laptop, desktop or cellphone) anymore. Taking some time in setting up device synchronization between your many gadgets means you will never be without an essential bit of data again.

Device synchronization enables you to share files, contacts, music and images if you set up your own little private network at home, connecting your desktop, laptop and smartphone - creating your own little wireless world, where all your information is shared.

Syncing is not as difficult as it seems. The first thing to check is compatibility across your different devices - are they using the same or compatible technologies. A quick visit to your hardware or device manager on your computer, or the settings menu or user guide on your cellphone, should answer that. If they are compatible, make sure the hardware is available and the drivers for the devices are all installed.

Some older desktops may not have Bluetooth, but Bluetooth dongles are inexpensive and can plug into a USB port, enabling your desktop to join a Bluetooth network.

The user manual that comes with your cellphone should have the specific setup procedures, as these differ slightly from cellphone to cellphone, but most operating systems like Windows XP, Windows 2000, Vista and Macs will automatically find and add a new Bluetooth device, provided that you have set it to be discovered on your cellphone settings.

Setting up a Personal Information Network is now a matter of adding your devices to the network and giving them permission to communicate with each other. The tricky thing about Bluetooth is that devices must be set up to both send and receive files (setting up one function does not imply that you can use the other function).

You will also have to use a passkey or password in the setup, which is either provided in your user manual or you can set up your own passkey, so your information is protected. Any file exchange will require your passkey to be entered by both parties.

The best way to test if your Bluetooth is communicating with your laptop is to send a picture or a file from the cellphone or external device to your laptop and then do the same from the laptop to the device. To do that, select the image or file you want to send, right-click on it and select Send to and then Bluetooth device and you should be able to select the specific device to which you want to send files.

You can synchronize your contact lists, photos and even a manageable number of files this way.

If you have a wireless network set up at work or home, use it to check your mails and send files. It's as simple as adding your cellphone or smartphone to the wireless network. All you need to do is find your cellphone's wireless settings (either in your Settings or Setup menu). Next, search for the network, then add it by entering the network name, and the key or password - and you should be able to use your wireless to download email and exchange files between your smartphone and laptop or wireless desktop computer fairly effortlessly.

If you're concerned about security remember that anyone within range can see your Bluetooth network, though they will have to go through the same procedure to connect to you, making it unlikely that anyone will be able to see your personal information.

Having your own information network at home can make work and play much easier.
