installing a bluetooth chip

I have a satellite a355 s6879.  I want to use bluetooth without having to plug something into a usb port.  I have found some chips for sale on ebay but the are for tecra and qoismo.  the folks selling them say they all pretty much look the same and any should work.  hmmmm...   anyway, does anyone know if this laptop is capable of accepting a chip or which one would work? 

thanks

Notebooks that did not come with internal Bluetooth installed cannot be retrofitted.  They lack the antenna, and in many cases, the connection on the system board.

 

Sorry.
