Mobile Service and Bluetooth: Learning to Co-Exist

Then, there’s the issue of Bluetooth wireless, which is also built into most smartphones. Bluetooth is typically used to connect your phone to cordless headsets and your car’s built-in phone/audio system. In this respect, Bluetooth and cellular wireless co-exist quite nicely; in fact, you can easily flow one wireless connection through the other.

You can see this co-existence in action when you connect to your phone’s data network while your phone is connected to another Bluetooth-enabled device. The Bluetooth connection then carries your cellular voice call to your headset or car system, in a nice little flow that looks something like the one in Figure 4.6. One wireless stream flows into the other.
