Bluetooth setup that works on office phone and cell phone

by jack428 / March 3, 2006 11:41 AM PST

Does anyone have any experience out there with bluetooth headsets that work with both office phones (the kind that are on a digital system) and mobile phones? Ideally it would be neat if there was a bluetooth attachment out there that would allow a standard bluetooth headset to connect to a regular office phone. ie - some sort of adapter that takes the audio signals from a land line phone and converts to bluetooth signals.

If you have any experience with this or pointers on where to get started I would really appreciate the help.

Additional Information:
The cell phones I use are the Motorola RAZR and treo 650. As mentioned, the office phone is a digital phone which means the connection coming into the phone is a wider LAN type connection and not a standard phone jack. So far the Plantronics Voyager seems like the only option I have found.

Compatible w/ existing BT Headsets?
by kuniabow / March 6, 2007 9:12 AM PST

Would be interested too! I already own a BT Headset (Motorolla H700) that I use w/ my cell and would like a way to use it on my office phone so I can work handsfree when I'm on a call. With all the BT headsets out there, you would think someone would find a way to make it compatible w/ landline phones through an adapter or something.

Bluetooth compatible wireless home phone system
by ggtpa29 / January 3, 2009 10:12 AM PST

I have a great bluetooth adapter called a streamer that connects my cell phone to my hearing aids. Does anyone know of a digital wireless landline phone that my streamer could link with. The bluetooth connection delivers a far superior sound quality to my hearing aids.

bluetooth converter for office phone
by barbarakelly / April 14, 2009 3:27 AM PDT

I have a bluetooth device called a streamer that answers my cell phone and sends the call wirelessly to my hearing aid. It can be linked to up to 8 devices. I want to hook it up to my office phone which is not a bluetooth. There is at least a couple of these converters but I haven't found one yet that is reasonably priced.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
