    Bluetooth is a short range wireless communications technology using Bluetooth specific radio hardware. You can usually check if your computer has the hardware by using the Windows Hardware Device Manager control panel. It is built-in on many cell phones and newer laptop computers.

    Bluetooth hardware can easily be added to any Windows based computer that doesn't have it and is running Windows XP SP2 or later. This is usually done by using a small, and fairly inexpensive, Bluetooth adapter that plugs into a computer's USB port. You need to make sure that there are drivers available for your particular adapter and version of Windows.

    Depending on the particular cell phone, you may need specific software on the computer to access the files saved on the cell phone. This software can usually be downloaded for free from either your cell service provider or from the phone manufacturer's web site.
