I just bought the sony T610. i want to use the microsoft Bluetooth Adaptor to send images to the phone, but so far, I have been unable to connect my XP PC with my T610. The keyboard & mouse work fine though.

Here's the deal:
Using Control Panel/Wireless Link, I can detect the phone w/the PC. After it detects, I can select ACCEPT or ADD TO PAIRED.
When Paired, it shows up as "UNKNOWN" on my devices on my phone, which seems a little odd. on my pc under Wireless Link, it shows my phone.
I've installed Ericsson Set 4 software
Once I run Ericsson's XTNDConnect PC Program, it says T610 not detected
Also on the Ericsson's Phone Settings Program, it does not detect my phone either !
Thanks in advance!

btw the only service list in Wireless Link in Control Panel is dial-up networking service.but it does not work too.

Hi Xren

I have exactly the same setup as you on my desktop PC.

The XTNDConnect software won't work with the Native XP Bluetooth driver. (It won't even work with the Sony Bluetooth driver on my new Vaio laptop).

I use a freeware program called floAt's Mobile Agent. You can get it at in the software section.

To set it up you will need to go to the Windows Control panel and Wireless link. Select properties and copy the address of your phone (mine is 00:0A:D9:8C:39:E5). Open FloAt then in Tools -> Options select 'Native Bluetooth' and copy in the address. You need to enter a port as well. Mine works on port 2.

PS. Make sure you have XP Service Pack 1 installed...

Or you can find more about it on this page which links to the SourceForge original project.

I've used Float's and it's great. If you have your mobile always connected to the desktop/laptop Float's will notify you of incoming calls - and even present a dialog with the caller name and phone number (from the mobile's address book). Really nice software . Some bugs here and there, but the author is working on them.
