    Come one come all to answer my important question! Alright, here's the deal. My gf has an iBook (500 mh, g3, etc). She's wondering if it would be possible to install bluetooth on it. Does anyone either know anyone who has done this or has done it themselves? Any help would appreciated greatly! Thanks!

    You cannot install bluetooth internally if that's what you mean. But you should be able to use an external USB adapter.

    Nope, can't do it.
    1. Theres no internal spot for it
    2. Even on machines where there is an internal spot, if its not FACTORY installed, it cannot be done later

    Used the new list feature :cool:

    The onlyway to do this would be to get the external D-Link USB Bluetooth module. The internal modules absolultly need to come built in the iBook from the factory, plus it only came about in the G4 ibook.
