How to Add a Bluetooth Transmitter

By Charles Poole

The Bluetooth transmitter on your cell phone is built into the logic board controlling all of the functions on your phone. If your cellphone doesn't have one, you will not be able to install a Bluetooth adapter for your phone. However, if you have a computer on which you would like to install Bluetooth, you can buy a Bluetooth adapter for your system. Bluetooth adapters usually come as an insert for the USB port on your computer.
