    Thanks Sandgroper, good if you don't have bluetooth capabilities on your laptop already what do these normally retail for?
  • sandgroper
    Cheapest I found was around the same price plus delivery, but the free delivery and cashback clinched it. Lots of notebooks dont have bluetooth, its offered as an extra, so a dongle os the cheapest way of adding it, also can be used with a desktop via the usb ports to transfer phone data (mp3's sim contacts etc) either way using the right software.

FEATURES- USB Bluetooth Wireless Adapter The Model 4310 is a USB adaptor which plugs into the USB port of a Macintosh with OS X or greater or a Windows XP, Me, 2000, or 98SE computer. The Model 4310 includes an external antenna to increase range. The Zoom Bluetooth Adaptors plug into a personal computer to provide a wireless connection to another Bluetooth-enabled device, such as a modem, mobile phone, headset, computer, PDA or peripheral. Zoom Bluetooth adaptors are Class 1 Bluetooth devices, which allows them to provide a range of up to 100 meters (330 feet), the longest range provided under the Bluetooth standard. Zoom's Class 1 Bluetooth device will communicate with all other Bluetooth devices, including Class 1, Class 2 and Class 3 devices. When connecting to Class 2 and Class 3 devices, Zoom Bluetooth adaptors are limited to the significantly shorter range of the less powerful Bluetooth devices on the other end of the transmission. Zoom Bluetooth adaptors support 723K bits per second data throughput, the maximum allowed by the Bluetooth standard. Zoom Bluetooth adaptors come complete with a software installation wizard which makes setup of the Bluetooth protocol stack fast and easy. The Bluetooth Piconet protocol supports concurrent connections with up to seven other Bluetooth devices. Security is ensured with the implementation of a Bluetooth security key and data encryption. Each Zoom Bluetooth adaptor contains a unique link key that prevents unauthorized access to the attached computer. The key is transmitted in a secure environment to prevent interception.
