There is no cabling involved and information such as files, photos, music, etc are easily exchanged between the connected electronic devices. The connected devices, which might include cellular phones, laptops, personal computers, printers, digital cameras, GPS receivers and even gaming consoles, communicate and exchange data through a secure short range radio frequency bandwidth. High-speed Bluetooth connectivity components are installed on Fujitsu LifeBook S710 Notebook which ensures that the system has maximum connectivity and can establish a Bluetooth partnership with other Bluetooth enabled devices and access other Bluetooth services.

- Activating Bluetooth

- Disabling Bluetooth
After you turn it 'On', Bluetooth will be turned on every time you turn on your Fujitsu LifeBook S710 Notebook. If you want, you can manually turn off Bluetooth . A switched on Bluetooth will be indicated by a light. Make sure that your Bluetooth device is searchable and that your Fujitsu LifeBook S710 Notebook is set to enable Bluetooth devices to connect to your computer.
Detecting other devices
When you turn your Bluetooth 'On' in your Fujitsu LifeBook S710 Notebook, it can detect other devices that use Bluetooth. However, other devices will be unable to detect your device unless you have set your device to be visible to other devices. Bluetooth encounters problems in discovering the intended recipient device since it is omni-directional. Bluetooth devices will perform a discovery operation that will find many other devices in the same room. At this point, the user must choose the proposed recipient, which will require special information.
Once Bluetooth is switched 'Off', it stays turned 'Off' until you turn it on again. Bluetooth in your Fujitsu Lifebook S710 Notebook has a radio transmitter, so it can take quite a bit of power. Unlike Wi-Fi, Bluetooth is rarely used, so chances are likely that your Bluetooth device isn't actually used for anything, and is just consuming battery life. It is advisable to switch 'Off' the Bluetooth switch when not in use because it saves power and your battery will last longer between charges.
