How to configure and synchronise your Bluetooth mobile with Outlook contacts via Bluetooth
Posted on 11-Jun-2003 19:12 by M Freitas | Tags Filed under: Articles


In a previous article we showed how to use the XTNDConnect software to synchronise contacts in other information with Sony Ericsson mobile phones.

What is important to know is that Bluetooth implements a native Synchronisation profile, and some mobile phone makers added this profile to their software. If you have Sony Ericsson R520, T39m, T68, T68i, T610 or a Siemens S55 you'll be able to synchronise your PIM information (contacts, calendar, e-mail) just using the native software, without need to install third-party softwares like XTNDConnect. Note that XTNDConnect gives the user the chance to select records on a criteria. The synchronisation profile instead updates all records. For instance, a T39m can hold around 200 entries in the address book, including three numbers (home, work, mobile) with each record. So, if your contacts list in Outlook contains more than 200 entries, you might be out of luck!

In this article we're using an Ericsson T39m and a TDK USB Bluetooth (version 1.4.2.1). We assume your devices are already paired. If not, do it first, then come back here!

Check out other Geekzone Bluetooth Guides.

Some screens on your computer may be different, but the idea is the same.

Right-click the Bluetooth icon in the system tray, and select Advanced Configuration.




Next we select the Client tab and double-click PIM Synchronization.




In this screen we'll select the type of information we want to sync between our PIM manager and the mobile phone. Note that unlike the XTNDConnect software, all records will be updated. Also if a record is changed in the mobile phone, the change will be replicated in the PIM database (with XTNDConnect you can decide which repository contains the updated version and solve conflicts). Click the OK button when finished.




Now let's select the Service tab and double-click the PIM synchronisation service.




Again, select the information you want to synchronise and click the OK button when finished. Click the APPLY button in the next dialog.




Now open My Bluetooth Places and double-click the Entire Neighbourhood icon to open it.




Let's double-click the icon corresponding to the mobile phone...




The list of services offered by this mobile phone will appear.




Double-click the IrMC Synchronization icon to start the sync action.




Remember, you can always right-click any service and create a shortcut in My Bluetooth Places to easy and quick access to these services!
