January 22, 2011 Bluetooth is not what it's cracked up to be.

I installed a bluetooth device today with Jim's cell phone. It doesn't work like we were advised that it would. It is not voice activated. I called Consumer Cellular. They only carry one phone that works by voice. But, first you have to push 3 selections on the phone's touchscreen every time you want to make a call. That doesn't work for quadriplegics. I've been researching on Christopher Reeve's website. It looks like there is another device that might work but it costs $400.

I'll check if Jim wants to spend that much. Maybe he'll get better finger control in a couple of weeks. So, I still can't communicate with Jim from home.
