Embedded VB is being depricated in favour of or the .Net Compact Framework.

If you are using the .Net CF you might want to taked a look at the bluetooth libraries at These generally provide some great ways to access bluetooth without having to get too deep.

Also note that the .Net CF v2 allows you to access the serial port directly.

The OpenNetCF often come with sample code and you can look at the source code too.

Failing that you can look at the very comprehensive help which will include examples of how to call functions, etc. If that is not useful. you could always check out the OpenNetCF forums.

I hope that is helpful!
