    Bluetooth in the DIAD 4 is used for communicating with an external cellphone that communicates at a different GPRS frequency than the internal DIAD 4 radio. This is currently being used in about 50 centers. The DIAD 4 can also communicate using Bluetooth with a scanner used in the preload. These features were introduced in Sept of 2007.

    I have a small computer that I plug into heavy equipment and it gets all kinds of info from the unit, shows me the info and sends it to the company by bluetooth software. Many a time has it revealed misuse by an operator.

    As far as the DIAD bluetooth it can only be paired with scanner equipped with bluetooth tecnology. You CANNOT pair the DIAD with your cell phone to send info incase your interenal radio goes down. If that happens you can still use a handset and have hte DIAD "talk" to our mainframe over the phone.

    With all due respect, actually the DIAD IV can be paired with a cell phone using Bluetooth. You are correct that they do not work with any cellphone as the cellphones being used are a specific model that are setup for data communications only. They are currently deployed to a select number of centers in the U.S. that have no CDMA coverage and only coverage in the GPRS spectrum that the internal DIAD IV GPRS radio doesn't cover. This enhancement was introduced with DIAD/DCS 07.06.

    As with DIAD III, the DIAD IV will also communicate using "Speaker-Comm."
