What?

If your phone supports Bluetooth, just sync it to the cell phone and use it. They can't block a Bluetooth signal because it's going to your phone then to the satellite.

bluetooth has NO connection to anything even remotely involving the word satellite. neither do cell phones.

But yea verizon blocks some bluetooth functionality in some phones.

Yeah they blocked it in mine but it's an old samsung. Guess they want you to buy $20 data cables.

Verizon Wireless is absolutely horrible with handsets. They love implementing a company wide user interference that locks down phone features.
