I am trying to connect my Nokia 6275i phone to my XP SP2 computer using a generic Bluetooth usb dongle.  Bluetooth is turned on in the phone and I have installed the widcomm drivers on my computer but cannot get either to see each other.  The light on the dongle is on and i dont have any error messages on my computer except for a network cable is unplugged for the bluetooth network.  Should I try using the Windows bluetooth drivers instead?  Any help would be appreciated.

Welcome to Geekzone... This is a known problem with older Nokia models and is related to the way the Bluetooth security was implemented.

It used to be a problem between Pocket PCs and those phones but it also happened with other devices including PCs.
