Hi folks,

I have just been given/lent a Bluetooth headset to be used with my phone. Unfortunately it at times be used while I'm using my laptop, which is connected to my home wifi lan.

My question is, should I expect any inteference to one or the other, or both? If so, is there any way I can minise it?

freitasm: You should have no problems when using Bluetooth and Wi-Fi in the same environment.

Really? They both operate in the same frequency - I often have problems with bluetooth audio in WiFi rich environs. Other bluetooth stuff is fine, but I get audio drop-outs when listening via A2DP.

Well, I've experimented with this and it seems the whole thing depends very much on the combination of phone and headset. I had iMate SP5, Samsung E250 and Nokia 6085 phones, a Blueant T8 and a Motorola HS820 headsets.

The combo of Nokia/Motorola and iMate/Blueant were the best, and it didn't have any interference whatsoever. The worst was Samsung and Blueant T8 combo, and the others were somewhere in between...don't ask me which order they came coz I can't remember.

So yeah...interesting experiment...not sure how or why it works like that though...
