Re: Bluetooth headset on 7961G?

The 7900 series phones do not have a Bluetooth radio built in (only the 9900 series do). You would need to use a compatible headset from Plantronics or Jabra.

My recommendation to customers is to order DECT 6-based wireless headsets for the office. Bluetooth is more susceptible to problems:

  • Range is limited to 30ft maximum. (DECT is up to 300 feet)
  • Runs on 2.4Ghz, same as 802.11b/g and can interfere. (DECT is 1.9Ghz)
  • Blindly changes channels every X milliseconds which doesn't work as well in higher densities.
