    Bluetooth is a wireless technology used to transfer data over relatively short distances (about 10 meters). For cell phones it is generally used to transfer contacts (and sometimes pictures or music) between a PC. You can also get a wireless Bluetooth headset for any Bluetooth capable phone.

    It would help if we knew what provider you had because some tend to disable certain features. *cough* Verizon *cough*

    Bluetooth is a short range wireless communications protocol. It's principly used for sending files between devices, using wireless headsets / headphones, and synchronizing. It isn't really that closely connected to the issue of being able to play songs. For that you need a phone with that specific feature. Once you have such a phone, you can use Bluetooth (although it's fairly slow) or more likely a USB cable to transfer the songs.

    EDIT: T-Mo does not typically disable anything.
