    Will RF devices interfere with Bluetooth devices ?

    Generally, when bluetooth is actvated, bluetooth devices are capable of transferring data within the limited range....But radio frequencies (RF) are broadcasted everytime....So I want to ask is there a possibility that radio frequencies interfere with bluetooth frequencies while transmission between two bluetooth devices ?

    No, it's not possible for the radio frequencies to interfere with the bluetooth transmission.
    Bluetooth radios operate on the unlicensed 2.4 GHz (Industrial, Scientific and Medical) frequency band that is shared among other devices (microwave ovens, cordless phones, garage door openers, etc. ).

    Bluetooth radios switch frequencies at such a rapid pace (1,600 times per second) and the data packets are so small that interference from other RF sources is highly unlikely. Bluetooth is a robust communication system.

    The data transfer rate of the Bluetooth transmission is very high 721 Kbps, which is from three to eight times the average speed of parallel and serial ports, respectively.
    This bandwidth is capable of transmitting voice, data, video and still images at such a high speed that the interference of radio frequencies with the transmission between bluetooth devices becomes impossible.
