How to Use an LG Bluetooth Headset
Bluetooth technology is a wireless means of sending and receiving data over short distances with mobile and stationary devices. While it has applications in non-civilian work, such as military and space organizations, bluetooth can be found on everyday items such as laptops, computers, cellphones and their accessories. These days, the need for a more hands-free alternative to the use of cellular phones is important; not only for ease of use or increased productivity, but for general safety. In some areas, the use of a bluetooth device while driving has become a law to protect other drivers and the public from accidents.
