No cisco phone, including the 7970, has embedded bluetooth. Heaqdset vendors like Plantronics make wireless adapters that are connected to the headset connector.

Hope this helps, if so please rate post!

Hi Allison,

Just to add a note to Paolo's good info, there are 2 Bluetooth adaptors from Plantronics that are recommended for the 7970;

Plantronics Voyager 510S/510L Bluetooth Headset System

With this system you can seamlessly switch between the 7970 phone and a voice-enabled Bluetooth mobile device.

From this link;

Hope this helps!

Does Cisco have plans to support bluetooth in the near future. It is amazing that Cisco phones cannot still support bluetooth. I was expecting to see the next set of phones (7945 and 7965) to support bluetooth headsets.
