I'm trying to transfer my contacts from my iPAQ 4155 to a Motorola V3 using Bluetooth. The iPAQ acknowledges the phone as a paired device, but I have no idea how to transfer my contacts from the handheld to the phone, especially since the phone doesn't seem to be able to find the iPAQ (but it did find the headset). How can I get the contact transfer to work?

Welcome to Geekzone. You can only transfer the contacts one at time, without a third party software.

Have your paired the devices? Try doing this from the Pocket PC, since it seems it can find the phone. After pairing then tap and hold on the contact you want to transfer and then select Beam or Send via (depending on version).

Thanks Freitasm!
One major issue is that the iPAQ always picks up and pairs phone, but not vice versa. For some reason, phone doesn't find iPAQ when using the Find Me. Only got it to happen once and then I could send, as you said, biz cards one at a time.

I think I might get the Mobile Phone Tool software to allows syncing with Outlook via the PC. Seems to be cleaner and more straightforward. Have you used this software?

No, I haven't tried that software, but sometime ago I tried MOBILedit! and it seemed very solid.
