i know this is covered in several places on the web, even on this site but its driving me crazy. I'm using an Imate Jam and it wont connect. I right click my bluetooth icon and click on bluetooth setup wizard then "I want to find a specific bluetooth device and configure how this computer will use its services." press next then i select my phone then next and activesync is in the list of services and when i check the box for it i get box that pops up that says "COM port number is not valid for activesync." so i right click my bt icon and click on advanced - local services, there are no serial ports so i click add serial port and in the COM port selection theres only COM11, i followed the bt guide for ports 1-9 and restarted and still nothing. I'm using the widcomm bt drivers and i'm using a BT mouse and keyboard from microsoft.. any input would be great. thanks

The Bluetooth ActiveSync must be setup in two parts: on the computer you have check what COM port is available on the Bluetooth configuration and then select this one on ActiveSync Connection Settings.

The next step is on the Pocket PC, where you will select a computer to synchronise with.

Check this i-mate ActiveSync guide for a start.
