Bluetooth uses a technique called spread-spectrum frequency hopping. It changes frequencies 1,600 times every second. A frequency of 2.45 gigahertz (actually between 2.402 GHz and 2.480 GHz, to be exact). For the bluetooth device to work at 100% it needs to be 100% compatiable. More than likely, if you change your earpiece device, you should be able to pickup your songs. If you go to the VerizonWireless website, they should have 100% compatiable devices.
Why is it called Bluetooth?
Harald Bluetooth was king of Denmark in the late 900s. He managed to unite Denmark and part of Norway into a single kingdom then introduced Christianity into Denmark. He left a large monument, the Jelling rune stone, in memory of his parents. He was killed in 986 during a battle with his son, Svend Forkbeard. Choosing this name for the standard indicates how important companies from the Nordic region (nations including Denmark, Sweden, Norway and Finland) are to the communications industry, even if it says little about the way the technology works.
