I have a acer n50 premium pda I have when I try and active the blue tooth all I keep getting is a message that reads


Sorry! Bluetooth can no longer be used because the licence has expired


The above message is displayed in a white box with a red cross at the side. The Bluetooth device and not be found by others and it can not pair with anything either.

I try soft and hard resetting and this makes no difference PLEASE HELP !!!!!

A couple of years ago, just before Windows Mobile 2003 was released, a pirate copy was going around, with a time limit on its Bluetooth software.

If you have not update this Pocket PC with a faulty software, then you should contact Acer and ask for an updated ROM image or ask them to fix the software (perhaps having to send it in so they can reflash?).
