I also prefer bluetooth any time.. Is is much faster and it dosen't require u to put ur devices directly in touch with each other which is required in the case of infrared...

You funny, man. Infrared port is such an old communication method. It cannot compare to bluetooth. Bluetooth is totally able to take place of infrared technology. The distance between two devices can be extended up to 10m. Actually, we can not see infrared ports any more on new generation mobiles.

Well, my phone is brand new (Nokia N95, came out earlier this year) and that has infrared. I've never used it though since no one else I know has it on their phones. I've only used bluetooth and SMS. I do agree though, infrared is old, forgotten technology.

Well I have both technologies on my mobile. However I prefer bluetooth becoz u can send or receive stuffs within a 100 meters parameter unlike infrared which works only when the 2 phones are very close to each other and are placed in the correct position, this can be very annoying coz sometimes even if u put everything correctly the sending fails!

hi there! ;0 i prefer bluetooth because it is much easier to use than infrared because with infrared, we have to let those two objects stay beside each other, so that their infrared rays can intertwine or something. sorry about the terms, i am not a techie junky. as for the bluetooth, as long as the two objects are within 10 feet or meters? from each other, they can send and receive mesages from each other. thank you and good day. :)

The problem with infrared used in cellphones and other gadgets are that it is too slow and distance between the transmitters has to be very close to each others. But if you look on some of the good things infrared has to offer: Very low power usage and new technology has proven to allow greater bandwidth (speeds)

I think everyone will go with bluetooth here. My phone has both bluetooth and infrared, and I don't think I've used the infrared once. First, no one else I know has an infrared capable phone and second, I hear infrared is a lot slower and the phones practically have to be right next to each other, with the ports pointing directly and nothing can be in the way. It's really an ancient technology, in comparison to how easy bluetooth is.
