I recently purchased a Sony Vaio PCG-TR5MP and subsequently a Siemens S65 mobile phone. Both are equiped with Bluetooth.

Clearly I am an incredibly stupid and naive person who has wasted a lot of money, not to mention time, effort and blood pressure pills in trying to get these two devices to talk to eachother. I thought any bluetooth device would talk to any other bluetooth, was I sucked in on that one! In the war the Japs and Germans didn't mind communicating with eachother, but they're damned if they will now!

The laptop is running XP and I have downloaded SP2

Anyone got any idea what I have to do to get these two devices to talk to eachother. The phone is recognised by the computer and I can do a 'file-push' from one to the other, but can't get them to synchronise....just seems to think they're not connected. Seems to be something to do with COM ports.

Could anyone who responds to this please bear in mind that although this is a geek site, unfortunately I am not, and am liable to get confused by any acronym with more than two letters in it...Grateful thanks will be expressed to anyone with a solution to this!!

You're probably finding the same problems reported on the thread Activesync problems with Sony Bluespace NE. Check that thread (half way through there are some options)...

Sorry, it's a problem on how Sony decided to implement it...
