    Bluetooth and FM Radio...

    Hi there!

    I have a question which may or may not have been asked before (search shows up little info)

    Basically I want to know if I can listen to FM Radio from my Nokia phone (N85) while using a bluetooth speaker system (assuming the speaker system has a built in antenna). Is this possible? Or do all phones with FM radio need some type of physical connection to a speaker in order for it to be heard? (Does a speaker system like this exist?)

    Likewise do Bluetooth headsets pick up FM radio from the phone without having to be phyically connected to the device? Thanks for any info

    Re: Bluetooth and FM Radio...

    FM radio is FM radio, be it in a standalone receiver or embedded in mobile phone, and as such the device requires an antenna (i.e. a wire).

    A wireless (Bluetooth) antenna would be a wireless wire

    Once the radio receiver decodes the radio signal and converts it audio signal that can be routed to wireless headsets, also I have never tried to see if the phone likes to have both wireless and wired headsets (as the antenna) connected at the same time.

    Btw, this forum is not suitable for end-user discussions regarding Nokia's phones. You can try instead http://discussions.europe.nokia.com
