As others have said it should work but working and being useful might be 
completely different things. I've tried a bluetooth headset with my n70 and 
e70 and found it to be a complete waste of money. On the n70 it's supposed 
to be able to handle multiple bluetooth connections but due to a firmware 
bug this just doesn't work. When the link to the headset does work the audio 
can be a bit flakey depending on conditions. With both of my phones I've 
found the biggest problem to be the volume of talks. Things like beeps and 
music etc. are fine but talks seems to come out at about half the volume of 
everything else. Even with the talks volume cranked all the way up this 
still seems to be the case. This happens on a bluetooth headset as well as 
the wired ones so I'm not sure what's going on there. Your milage may vary 
The thing I'd really like to find is a small, amplified speaker that could 
connect to the phone. That way the phone could stay in a pocket and the 
speaker could clip to a shirt collar or something like that. Does anyone 
know if something like this exists? Maybe one of the car hands free kits 
with an internal battery or something.
