I'm at my wits end....

The situation:
I have an Ipaq 1945 with Bluetooth and a Motorola V600 with a bluetooth modem.

I can get my windows xp unit to pair and dial thru the v600 with no problem but I can't get the pocket pc to dial thru the v600.

I'm using a simple case of setting up a connect to dial a local phone so I can verify that it actually dials out. When I go to the bluetooth manager and tell it to connect to the bluetooth dialup modem, then choose the connection (number) to dial, the pocket pc tells me it cannot connect. I see the bluetooth indicator blink for a second but then I get the failure.

I next tried a SE phone with bluetooth. Pair exactly the same way and then dial the same connection and of course it dials out ok (local phone rings).

If it weren't for the fact that the XP computer dials out ok thru the V600 I would certainly say it's the V600's problem.

Any suggestions on how to debug the initial bluetooth connection to the v600?

Any help is greatly appreciated.... Motorola says its the HPs fault and HP says its the V600's fault.

I see you post something on this thread... Perhaps this is a t-mobile problem?

What configuration are you using on your computer? Init strings, APN name, *99* number, etc?

I did post something earlier in another thread but I thought I would try the simplest situation first which was to dial a phone number with the bluetooth modem. If the device cannot do this then it will never connect to anything else.

The problem seems to be in the connection of the Ipaq to the V600. I can transfer files back and forth so the pairing seems ok. But when I try to use the modem it immediately tells me it cannot connect.

What am I missing.....?

Are you using the dial up service like explained in our Bluetooth Guides, or selecting Bluetooth Fax Modem from the Connection configuration?

If you are doing a manual configuration (not recommended), make sure to use Bluetooth Modem, not Bluetooth Fax Modem. But the sure and easy way to follow the Bluetooth Manager's Wizard.

I have use the Bluetooth manager wizard when connecting the V600 (the one that doesn't work) and the SE phone (the one that does work). On the connections page I definitely chose the Bluetooth Dialup modem.

One thing that I notice that is strange is the hex address is all FF:FF:FF:FF etc when I look at the properties. That's what it shows on the XP computer and that's what it shows on the Pockect PC. The XP connection does dial the modem and the Pocket PC doesn't.

are you using a connection to a Bluetooth headset at the same time?
Have you tried dialing from the ipaq contacts (select and hold on contact address, then select "dial from bluetooth"

I've noticed wonky results with an ipaq H4150, dialing through a sony Ericson T616 while linked to a bluetooth headset (Motorola HS810) Something to do with the serial connection, as crazy as that sounds

Back to the original issue with using the V600 for dial-up, have a look at this thread.
