Is it possible to access Bluetooth capabilities from an old cell phone? Answered

 Can you use an old cellphone with Bluetooth to, for example, print to a bluetooth printer? As in a phone without a carrier?

As long as the phone functions in every aspect other than sending or receiving calls, it'll work.  Bluetooth has nothing to do with whether the phone has cell signal from a carrier, nor does it care whether the phone is authorized to use cell service.

Almost every phone will be happy to let you access every feature that doesn't require a carrier, with the exception of the iPhone.  Steve Jobs and Ma Bell are megalomaniacal that way.
