Hi and I have a Bluetooth device I wear in my ear and it talks to my 
Cell Phone with no setup required. It's a LG cell phone and Motorola 
Bluetooth but they work fine. I checked on this FC6 and it has at 
System->preferances->More preferances a tag says Bluetooth but it is 
nothing but a panel asking what it should do if it hears a transmitter. 
Nothing poped up when I turned on my thing so I think it's not working.
