I've had bluetooth working on my T42, but I haven't used it for a
couple years.

Bluetooth comes it two grades, class1 and class2.  Class 1 is designed for
100m, Class 2 is designed for 10m.  Also, bluetooth uses 2.4GHz, same
as wifi, so it's natural to expect some interference.

I used it to bridge a serial port to some instrumentation that needed
to be untethered.  Worked great.
