Nortel BCM 50 with IP 1140E

Nortel BCM 50 with IP 1140E

I have the BCM 50 with 3 different IP 1140E telephones. I have purchased 2 different Bluetooth headsets (Different Manufactures) and even when I am sitting 1-2 feet from the phone, I get a lot of static. I actually purchased 2 of each headsets. The are not "top of the line" devices but they do work great on my cell phone. Does the 1140 just have crappy Bluetooth connectivity? Any recommendations?

Thanks - Barney

We used Plantronics CS50-USB and CS60-USB
We always had good experiences with it

RE: Nortel BCM 50 with IP 1140E

Any other recommendations? The smaller the headset the better.

RE: Nortel BCM 50 with IP 1140E

Bluetooth in general is very sensitive to sources of interference. In some commercial settings it can be nearly unusable. Switch to using a business grade dect based headset if bluetooth is not functioning. Usb ehs cable to headset base on 1140e is best.

RE: Nortel BCM 50 with IP 1140E

I agree, you are far better off using the headset jack to a Bluetooth headset base unit instead of using the 1140 as the base since it does not support many Bluetooth devices nowadays.
