    So at work today they had a PCM about how we are not allowed to use headset bluetooth because it messes with the computer systems...

    For CT people they said this came from Hartford :funny:

    the funny thing is for trucks they want us to scan trucks which also use bluetooth.. seems like it's a BS story made up.

    I'm on my bluetooth at least 4 hours a day and at my JAC we have a decision on bluetooth that we can use them. My center manager and dm see it in my ear everyday.

    I can't see how they can enforce it.. I see many drivers walking around with them... I wonder what they will think of next...

    I overheard this in Hartford as well

    I don't know how this device can actually ruin any data being sent via bluetooth ?

    Seems to me that someone was :censored2: at a driver talking on his bluetooth all day while not working up to par. or even a preloader or sorter. It would be hard to pinpoint this to a person or position.

    This was posted in Chema today too. Something about interfering with ring scanners.

    There is so much crap running in the buildings, I doubt very much it is phone earpieces causing the problems.

    Ring scanners? I'm guessing that's what they call those scanners i use everyday? bunch of buttons that look like a dial pad and has a green and red button?

    If that's the case lol good luck... that's why bluetooth still scans while it's connected because every once and while they will just disconnect on it's own for no reason because we have 5 in one area and god knows how many in the building...

    besides if your more then 30Ft away then it's going to disconnect anyways

    They told us no bluetooth a few moths ago because it falls under the "no cell phones while driving" safety issue with in cab distractions.

    We have had the no bluetooth rule for several years in our area.

    It was a flavor of the month that is now routinely ignored.

    It looks like you are you in the same Central Region JAC as my Local (135). If so, can you post a copy of this decision or get the info so I can look it up??

    Management told a few drivers in our center "no more bluetooth" a few weeks ago. Never gave a reason why.

    Doesn't affect me since I don't even own a cell phone. :happy-very:

    Sounds bogus but what ever. I hate to admit it but I am on my phone about 4 hours a day. Headset only. I need to stay in touch with civilization out here... ( I know, I know...I 'CHOOSE' to stay in touch with civilization)
