MC75s with Bluetooth capabilities can exchange information (e.g., files, appointments, and tasks) with other Bluetooth enabled devices such as phones, printers, access points, and other mobile computers. To use the MC75 as a modem, create a dial-up modem connection between a computer and MC75.
MC75 User Guide The Bluetooth radio in this MC75 operates as a Class 2 device power class. The maximum output power is 2.5mW and the expected range is 32.8 feet (10 meters). A definition of ranges based on power class is difficult to obtain due to power and device differences, and whether one measures open space or closed office space.
Turn off the Bluetooth radio to save power or if entering an area with radio restrictions (e.g., an airplane). When the radio is off, other Bluetooth devices cannot see or connect to the MC75. Turn on the Bluetooth radio to exchange information with other Bluetooth devices (within range).
Cold Boot Performing a cold boot on the MC75 turns off Bluetooth after initialization (which takes a few moments). It is normal to see the Bluetooth icon appear and disappear, as well as a wait cursor, when initialization proceeds in all modes.

Introduction The Voice Quality Manager (VQM) is a software package that resides on the MC75. VQM enables a set of features for Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) calls, and a sub-set of those features for cellular line (GSM or CDMA) calls. The VQM user interface is designed to be intuitive and easy to use, so complex tasks such as enabling the Acoustic Echo Canceller (AEC) while a call is in progress are done with very little or no user intervention.
