I use a Blue Tooth

I use a Blue Tooth with my cell phone so I don't have to hold the phone to my ear (when I DO use the phone alone, I use it on the right ear.)
I have had no problems whatsoever with my Blue Tooth or my actual cell phone.
Newer PMs are not as sensitive. A few of the PM Techs I have had in the past year have all said the same thing.
ASK YOUR PM TECH - they should know for sure.

me too..

..I have used Bluetooth plenty of times in the past without any problems and my PM is very old (21 years). I've never even heard that it could cause an issue to be honest, but as has already been said, check with your technician to be sure

You know you're wired when...

Your ICD has a better memory than you.

In fact after the final "tweaks" of my pacemaker programming at the one year check up it is working so well that I forget I have it.
