Question Bluetooth networking?

Im thinking of getting one of these blue tooth dongles just so i can transfer pictures from my phone to my pc. in the past i have thought about wireless networking (i have a laptop aswell) and was wondering if it was possible to do it via bluetooth. I have seen a class 1 device that claims to work upto 100 m range but will it go through walls?? i always thought bluetooth was line of sight technology but maybe im wrong???

if anyone can shed some light cheers in advance!!

Hmmm... anything that can go 100m is going to be strong enough to go through walls I imagine.

I really wouldn't recommend bluetooth for phone or networking, not quick enough and it's to expensive. Look at a USB cable for your phone, these are usually available VERY cheaply from ebay or your local mobile phone shop. Which phone is it you have?

Yeh alot for under a tenner where bluetooth could cost you 40+ one thing though, you might not be able to use Nokia PC Suite with USB, but you should still be able to transfer pictures.
