Very strange thing happens to me: My BT acces point (siemens blue2net) services do not show in windows mobile 5 bluetooth wizard. I have a T-mobile vario MDA running wm 5.

From my PC using bluesoleil bluetooth connection through a dongle the services show themselves and I can connect to the blue2net. Like this I can access the blue2net config page.

What could be wrong with the connection through this Pockect PC and how to get a solution?

The current Windows Mobile 5.0 software does not implement the required profile (either LAP or PAN) to connect to the services offered by this BT Access Point.

Thanks for your swift answer. I remember I have seen a post from you stating that the Ipaq (?) Pocket PC was able to connect to a bluetooth AP. Very bad that the (newer) Pocket PC version Windows mobile 5.0 cannot handle this. Do you know why?

The old iPaq Pocket PCs used the Widcomm software, while the new devices use the Microsoft software - which have different profiles.

Hi 3dotter here again. Thanks. That is a clear answer, but it shows not a clever move from the side of Microsoft. Is there any chance to use another BT stack on windows mobile? It would be nice if the user was able to switch from one stack to the other.

It is actually not a Microsoft decision. The manufacturer decided on using the basic Microsoft software, but they have the option of using other software if they want to.
