Try this click here Explains it pretty well. I`ve used it with Nokia phones for over 2 years in preference to infra red or cable connections. When driving your mobile can stay on your seat and a bluetooth earpiece sits behind your ear. (Looks like a slug but seems to work)

It is a way for the computer to talk to the phone and vise versa. The signal is transfered by radio waves so no physical connection is needed. It's a bit like Infrared but the devices do not have to physically see each other.i.e. eyeball to eyeball.

Like Ir, the bluetooth transfer rate is slow, about 1Mb\s. So it is usually used for small files.

You can then transfer files, pictures, addresses etc form the phone to the computer and from the computer to the phone.
