It was working ok until a few weeks ago but suddenly it's showing signs of trouble.

I'm aware that there might be other more useful things to do with it, but for starters I want to experiment with it, if at all possible.

Using bluetooth to make my landline phone ring with my cell phone
I am new so please bare with me. I have a Galaxy 3 which I hate but I was in an accident and my sister bought it for me. She just went to AT&T (my carrier) and asked for the best phone. Until I buy a windows phone I have a question about bluetooth on this phone.
