Does this laptop have a Bluetooth? If it does, how do I enable it or how I can use it? I don't see it in device manager. Can you help me? I want to connect my iPhone with my laptop thru Bluetooth but I can't figure how.

I looked at some reviews and none mentioned Bluetooth.

Open device manager and look in there, if it's not there, are there any unknown devices?

Which wifi adapter do you have? You have WiMAX?

You can always get a Bluetooth dongle.

Recently I replaced the wifi card that came with the laptop with this one:
intel Centrino® Advanced-N 6205. By mistake I also uninstalled the wimax before I replaced the wifi card and now I don't know how to put it back. Wimax it's related with the wifi card or is a different thing? I really don't know how to activate the wimax. I know that it was in my computer before I replaced the wifi card. Can you please help me!

Wimax is like the 4G of Wifi. You need a 3rd antenna for Wimax. But your card doesn't have Wimax.

The wifi card you bought doesn't have BlueTooth. The old Atheros card DID have it. My Intel 6230 Wifi has Bluetooth, too.

So, that's why you don't have bluetooth. lol

My bad, instead of ordering intel 6250 wifi card I ordered by mistake 6205. What is actually a downgrade of what I initially had on my laptop :D
