Many Bluetooth headsets can be configured to work with this phone in "Handsfree" mode. The VVX 600 phone supports the use of Bluetooth 2.1+EDR headsets and Handsfree Profile (HFP) 1.0.

When Bluetooth v2.1+ EDR is enabled on the VVX 600 phone, an icon Screen_shot_2013-06-27_at_5.03.54_PM.png displays in the status bar. vvx_600_icons_top_of_screen.jpg

Bluetooth is disabled by default. Users can manage — add, remove, connect, and disconnect — their own Bluetooth headsets.

When a Bluetooth headset is paired and connected with the VVX 600 phone, the icon changes displaying a headset Screen_shot_2013-06-27_at_5.07.16_PM.png in the status bar.
