Indeed, the system that the Bluetooth headset uses is more than simple. But this, just like many other examples, proves that simplest things are usually the most effective ones. As its name suggests, the Bluetooth headset is connected with the mobile phone device via Bluetooth connection. And here is the time to emphasize on the fact that the Bluetooth headset is not a tool meant for communication i.e. it cannot help you call others unless you have a mobile phone. It is just a tool that helps you speak without using your cell phone.
But let’s try to figure out what that means in practice. Basically, you are in the car and driving. Suddenly, you hear your phone ringing. If you don’t have a Bluetooth headset, accepting the phone call is practically impossible. Not only is speaking on the phone whilst driving forbidden in most countries, but it is also proved to increase the risk of traffic accidents. Forget about the cops that you may get fined by. It is your own safety, and you should value it! Why should you endanger your life and even the life of other passengers? Moreover, you do not really have to avoid phone calls in the car. You just need to use the Bluetooth headset i.e. both of your hands should be free; the so called “hands-free” usage of cell phones.
Now, let’s get back to how those Bluetooth headsets work. They usually have one or two buttons that let you accept calls and end them. If it’s one button, logically it will end the conversation if there was such; and if a phone call is being received, it will accept it. Still, most of the good hands-free devices out there will come with at least two buttons. After all, it should not be forgotten that some calls are undesired, and there should always be a button to dismiss the call.
Basically, these buttons, no matter what their number is, can be pressed just for a second. So you will waste just a fraction of a moment to accept the call or reject it. Afterwards, you may continue driving and speaking since the Bluetooth headset is practically plugged in your ear, and there is no need to hold it against your ear as you hold the mobile phone. When the conversation is over, just press the button for ending conversations or wait for the other side to do it. It is important to know that you should not take off the Bluetooth headset when the conversation is over and then put it back on when you get another phone call. That’s very time-consuming and is also considered illegal in most of the countries. Just put your hands-free device when you get in the car, and take it off when you get out.
