Hey

Hopefully someone can help me out, this is my first post on any forum so keep me right. I have read and tried almost everythign on this site, the microsoft site and others, so after 3 nights trying I am almost going to give up.

I have just got a motorola v635 and wish to be able to connect it to my microsoft bluetooth transceiver (for optical desktop) for the purposes of sync with outlook contacts etc via mobile phone tools v3.0. I can connect via usb but really want the bluetooth working- thats why i bought it. They can both ' see' each other and establish DUN no problem. MPT says that it cant find the device because it is not paired. I dont know what to do - I have tried pairing through xp and also via troublesome installation of WIDCOMM. I have spent hours tweaking with the latter but the widcomm software never even found my transceiver.

Can anyone help my stupid wannabe techie ass. Muchos gracias : )

If you don't have experience, don't try messing around and installing third party drivers - it can mess your computer in big ways. Stick with the original Microsoft software.

You are probably just missing the definition of a serial port. If you are using Windows XP SP2, then follow this guide to find how to define a serial port (but instead make sure you define an outgoing port, not incoming) and then configure Phone Tools to connect through this port to your phone.

Note the article is just a so you know where to step. Your needs are a little different but following the idea you can get there.

When you define an outgoing COM port it should give you the option to select a device to connect to.

If you're using Widcomm, then you have to right-click the icon corresponding to your mobile phone and select Connect to Serial. This will attach the port and your computer will "remember" what Bluetooth device to connect when using that port. I think there's a similar procedure for Windows XP SP2.

i cannot use widcomm because it wont even find my bluetooth receiver on my laptop.

when using the xp pack, I can only add incoming ports because when trying to add outgoing ports all i get is no devices found even though my v635 is set to discoverable. It is however seen by my computer and is under mobile phones. I just want to pair it to my computer so that when i start up mobile phone tools then it will find the device.

Right now i start up mpt 3.0 and select bluetooth and use a different transceiver to the motorola one and it says nothing found.

HELP! (or any other suggestions on getting a good sync programme that will work via bluetooth for my motorola v635)

tom : )

Perhaps you want to try MobileEdit!, it supports the V635... I've used it over Bluetooth, although the problem in your case is probably a configuration thing.

Have you inserted the Bluetooth dongle before installing the software? Have you tried removing the dongle, uninstall the software, reboot, install the software, reboot, and only then plug the adapter?
