Bluetooth ActiveSync Guide for i-mate Smartphone2
Posted on 14-Apr-2004 21:03 | Tags Filed under: Articles


In this article we show how to configure and use your desktop or notebook as a Bluetooth ActiveSync partner for your i-mate Smartphone2. The Windows Mobile Smartphone based i-mate Smartphone2 is also known as XPhone or SPV E200 in other markets.

To make this guide we have used a desktop running Windows 2000 Pro with a TDK USB Bluetooth (version 1.4.2.18) as the client.

Check out other Geekzone Bluetooth Guides for more step-by-step pages!

This guide is based on Windows 2000 machines. The dialogs for Windows XP might be a little different, but the configuration will be the same.

First, let's configure the computer that will be the server on this configuration. Start by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon in the System Tray and selecting Advanced configuration.




Now select the Local Service tab and take note of what COM port corresponds to the Bluetooth Serial Port.





Right-click the ActiveSync icon in the Sytem Tray and select Connection Settings.




Make sure you check the box "Allow Serial cable or infrared connection to this COM port" and select the COM port corresponding to the Bluetooth Serial Port in the service configuration we found just before. Click the OK button when finished.




Right-click the ActiveSync icon again and select the Open Microsoft ActiveSync option.




Select the Options button...




Here you select the schedule as "Continuous" or "Upon connection".




We can now continue with the configuration on the Smartphone. Press the Start soft key to initiate the process:





Select ActiveSync:





Press the Menu soft key, and then select Setup BT ActiveSync:





Make sure your computer is in discoverable mode. Follow the instructions in the ActiveSync dialog, pressing Start soft key to continue the procedure:





Continue following the instructions, pressing the Ok soft key:





Make sure to turn Bluetooth On or Discoverable. Press the Menu soft key and select Bonded Devices:





On this dialog press the Menu soft key and select New:





After a little while a list of Bluetooth devices is shown. Select your computer from the list, and click the Add soft key:





You'll be asked to enter a PIN. Enter any four digits numbers of your choice, and press the Done soft key:





On your computer you'll see a notification bubble close to the System Tray. Click on it and this dialog will show. Enter the same PIN here:





You can confirm your computer's Bluetooth name on your Smartphone now, by pressing the Done soft key:





Back to ActiveSync you should now only need to select the Connect via Bluetooth option from the Menu soft key:





And you'll see the Smartphone connecting to your computer:
