V600 to have Bluetooth DISABLED on Cingular???

Archived from groups: alt.cellular.cingular (More info?)

I was told by a Cingular tech yesterday, that they had heard Bluetooth
would be left off of the Motorola V600 phones that Cingluar is to
provied.

Has anyone heard this? This sounds incredible. The Bluetooth is a big
draw - why would they have it left off.

She did say that was the last thing she had heard, but didn't know if
it was the final decision. She didn't know why they wanted to leave it
off.

Thanks for any help,
Dan

    Cingular carries other Bluetooth phones, so this doesn't make very much
    sense. I doubt it is true, as they probably want to sell lots of
    Bluetooth-capable accessories.

    Cingular currently carries the Mot V400 which is almost the same as ATT's
    Mot V600 except it does not have the Bluetooth. I wasn't aware that Cinular
    was planning on carring the V600. However my friend got a V400 from
    Cingular and it was Unlocked when he bought it.

    Bluetooth? I personally don't find that feature very useful. I'd rather
    they leave that feature off and offer the phones at a lower cost.

    The new motorala phones have good features but I find them too big and ugly.
    The fit and finish on both Samsung phones sold by Cingular (x427 & S307) is
    so much nicer.

    I personally use the Motorola V60 because is has great sound quality and
    filters very well the background noise when driving -- the persons on the
    other end cannot tell i'm driving. But then again Motorola phones have
    such bad fit and finish.

    Not true at all.
    Cingular is not the one's who decide about what primary phone features are
    available, Motorola is.
    Cingular does not "disallow" bluetooth. They have their version fo the Sony
    Ericson T610 which has bluetooth.
    They are not against Bluetooth. It's just possible that the rep you spoke
    with doesn't know what bluetooth is.

    Carriers (such as Cingular) certainly can specify what features they
    want enabled on a phone. A few years ago I had a Nokia that had IR
    capability with the other carriers, but it was disabled with Cingular
    (actually the IR was removed).

    It's not that Cingular is against Bluetooth, it might have to do with
    some other issue.

    Actually, I think that the V600 has all 4 of the world frequencies and the V400
    doesn't.

    Nope. V400 is also a quad-band phone.

    Well, the Nokia 6190 had an analog roaming add on module. The
    electronics to make that work needed space so it displaced the IR
    electronics that the other 6100 series phones had.

    I dun think that PBW said "no IR" but was just what features would be
    useful for their GSM customer base.

    Both the V400 and V600 are quad-band devices.
