A couple of Bluetooth modules were in stock. One was an assembled unit from Tinysine, and the other came as a couple of pieces, one was a bare Bluetooth module, and the other was a breakout board. Modules like this are sometimes found on the inside of full-fledged products soldered to a motherboard.
Available Bluetooth modules

The assembled unit was tested first. The goal was to receive data from the computer. Unfortunately, this was difficult since the password was different than the one published on the Tinysine website and the computer would not recognize it as a serial port. Finding the correct password eventually worked, it was 0000. Being unable to use the module as a serial port was never solved.
No connection possible

The other pieces were soldered together to try them. Instead of looking for exactly which connections to make, I soldered all the pins since it seemed unlikely that making all the connections would be harmful. The module did not work, so perhaps it was grossly outdated, or soldering too many pads was damaging. These modules had been in my stock for a couple of years without use.
Too much solder?
