Hello everyone,

Not sure whether its just me or its this phone. I just got the promotional deal at the moment as my girlfriends phone had been pressumed stolen. It has since reappeared.

That aside, I have been trying to get Isync working over bluetooth since I don't really feel like reentering my address book or transferring all contacts to sim and back.... but the phone won't respond to any bluetooth request sent from my laptop (mac powerbook).

It has been paired and all. The bluetooth wizard can't find any services but it still goes ahead and pairs. But even with a simple file transfer - it fails with a 'unable to validate device' error.

The strange thing is that my P910 bluetooth works fine, the z600 bluetooth works fine.... and the phones can push files to each other.

I'm starting to suspect that it could be a firmware thing or a motorola bluetooth problem (neither would surprise me). The problem is that there is no cable supplied to connect to USB so its a tad difficult to sync over cable (which is not really perferred but is still an option).

Since my girlfriend had brought the phones yesterday and the other one is still unopened I was thinking of going back to the vodafone store where we brought them and asking what was going on and how can it be fixed. Assuming that it is a firmware issue - it does not state that the phone won't accept PC-Phone connections.

I'll report any findings here but if anyone has any ideas - they'll be welcome too.

CM

Motorola would be the better ones to point this out too.

Where the phones set to Visible mode? I've just been playing with 2 of them now and struggled to send stuff from my V600 until I realised you need to set them to visible mode even if Bluetooth is turned on.

IMHO they are a damned good phone for the price, I haven't tried them with a Bluetooth headset as mine was at home.

I'm not sure if it's just an isolated problem or not but Vodafone's network seems to be having some serious issues today. I just had 3 phones to try (all on the same cellsite) and Live!, wap and internet access all seem to be suffering outages and I'm just trying to make voice calls to several other Vodafone mobiles elsewhere in the country and they are failing as well.

Phones were on visible/discovery mode. They just didn't respond to the computer at all - regardless of whether they were paired or not.

In the end I just returned them for a refund. Its funny how when I have an imported phone - I get read the riot act about unsupported handsets... yet when I buy voda branded handsets here in NZ - I get little support in regard to bluetooth (both from Motorola and Voda).

Both customer services and the retail store were unable to help me at all. Customer services did create a solutions support ticket for it which I have to request to get closed sooner or later. The reason why my girlfriend purchased them for had gone away too (her phone had gone 'missing' at work).

Without the ability to transfer contacts, the calendar, and sync - the phone has little value for me.

cokemaster vodafone does not support bluetooth cause for bluetooth to work it does not interact with the Mobile phone network.

Hi,
I've got se same cellphone e770v,since 4 days.
And I'm a very happy Macuser from 1996.

I've called motorola cust.care, and they tell me that there aren't solutions for fix the incompability between Apple and e770v. I'm sure that they stupid idiots don't use a standard OBEX!!!

But there is a solutions:

You can use your cellphone by this sw:
MEGACELLX

Even if there are some bug to fix. (es. Sometimes whrn adding contacts it crashes)
Actually, this is the only one app.

I suspected that Motorola were using a different OBEX or bluetooth stack. If this is the case they should clearly place a warning on the box and manual stating that it might not work with regular bluetooth software.

Luckly for me, I already returned the handsets I purchased back - otherwise I could see myself having to fight tooth and nail to return them.
