After having been very frustrated since I got my new SE T630, I'm now a happy guy again. The problem showed up when I tried to connect the phone to my Dell Precision M60 via bluetooth. I could pair'em and browse files on the laptop via the phone, but the phone never revealed any of it services to the laptop. I tries ALL the com-port tricks out there, but none helped me. The only thing that made my stuff work was to install the Bluesoleil-drivers instead of dell's bluetooth drivers, but since Bluesoleil isn't licensed for my module it was limited to 5 MB transfer.

I then heard about XP SP2, made a clean install of XP (no updates before SP"), installed SP2 and fired up the bluetooth-stuff. It found the T630 immediately and now everything works like a charm. Synch against Outlook, dial up.....

Just for your information :-)

Good to know, although I think that if you had done a fresh install using the Dell drivers, it would work too (or should).

For other users, as an information only, Windows XP SP2 does not implement LAN Access, only Personal Area Network, and even so as a client only. Don't try connecting much more than a mobile phone or a PDA...
