How to Use Yealink’s SIP-T49G Bluetooth Phone with a Mobile Phone

February 8, 2019 by Ying-Hui Chen

Many of Yealink’s business IP phones have built-in Bluetooth support that allows you to connect your mobile phone to the Yealink phone unit wirelessly.

The advantage is that you can switch the desktop phone to your mobile phone anytime you want, even during a phone call without any interruptions. (The person on the other end won’t even notice it!) Let’s take Yealink’s SIP-T49G business phone as our example and see how this process works:

How to use Yealink’s SIP-T49G with a Mobile Phone

Switching back and forth between the T49G business phone and your mobile phone is easy. Let’s take a quick look at the simple process:

  • Turn on Bluetooth from your mobile phone setting
  • Connect your mobile phone to SIP-T49G via Bluetooth
  • When there is an incoming call, both your cell phone and the T49G will ring
  • Answer the call on either the SIP-T49G desktop phone or your mobile phone
  • On your mobile phone, you can switch this call to SIP-T49G without any interruptions
  • When your conversion is finished, simply hang up the call on your cell phone or the T49G and the call will hang up on both ends

This Bluetooth connection process works for the T49G, SIP-T58V, SIP-T58A, SIP-T56A, and SIP-T49G. The best part is that the SIP-T49G IP phone can actually synchronize with your mobile phone contacts and call the contacts on behalf of your mobile phone. This can save busy workers like you lots of hassle!

Microsoft Enhanced Teams Features to Empower Healthcare Professionals

It’s not surprising to see that Microsoft Teams introduces new features again! This time, the new features are targeting healthcare professionals, enabling secure communication and collaboration in healthcare institutions. The new enhancements can be broken down into three areas:

  • Priority notifications for urgent messages (this is currently in private preview) – Send alerts every two minutes (up to 20 minutes) to recipients on their mobile and desktop devices until a response is received.
  • New Message Delegation – Recipients can now delegate messages to another person within the organization. This feature is coming soon!
  • Integrate FHIR-enabled electronic health records (EHR) data with Teams – allow healthcare providers to access patient records and chat with members right in the Teams mobile app. The Teams integrations with Infor, Cloverleaf, Dapasoft and more platforms are still in the pipeline!
