I have a question about bluetooth which is pretty simple, however I've been unable to find the answer through Google so I hope someone here will be able to help me. I'm thinking about buying this phone which is a flip/fold phone. It has bluetooth but I've never used bluetooth before. What I want to know is whether or not the phone would need to be left unfolded in order for me to be able to answer it, possibly using a device such as this.

To me, it seems daft that a flip phone would bother having bluetooth if it's impossible to answer it without having to flip it open first but I wanted to check first before buying. Hope someone can help. Thanks!

Hi Sparky :blink: Quite a few of the fold and flip type of phones have the option of using the volume keys at the side to answer or reject a call whilst the phone is folded. So it's possible that its the same for this particular phone, and they can work with the blue tooth device that you are considering. To be sure I would contact a reputable Nokia dealer who should be able to guide you.

Hi,

I have a Nokia 5350 bluetooth flip phone which I connect to a Motorola T505 hands free device which has a FM transmitter so I can use the car stereo for phone conversations. Very helpful as it makes it so easy to hear the call. My phone can be left open or closed, calls are answered and ended by touching a button on the T505. I don't have to take my eyes off the road to use it.

For my particular phone it is important to have a car charger as the battery just doesn't last long.

I connect my phone to my PC through a USB bluetooth adaptor. Very fast and convenient to update contacts. I also use various other bluetooth devices such as headphones, adapter to connect my phone to play MP3's on my home stereo etc.

Bluetooth is very useful.

Hope that helps
