When configuring bluetooth, I seem to have deleted the ability to create a new outgoing port. I am only given one choice - New Incoming Port. I don't know how I did it. Has anyone else experienced this & if so how did they got around it.. (I'm at the point of considering a firmware reload - which will reset everything)

There's a few other things that have started to happen also & I'm not sure if they are related including a failure to connect to "for an unknown reason"

This probably happens if you have already created more ports than the number of ports available in the system. As for how to delete the other ports... That's a good question. Will try to find out more.

I've only ever been given the chance to select com6 & com7. I originally set up com6 for active sync & everything was working fine until it started reporting that com6 was being used by another program (news to me can't think what!) I went about re-setting up my bluetooth settings & low and behold no 'New Outgoing Port' option to tap on just 'new Incoming Port' Strange !!
