barjohn, I had it working perfectly when I first got my 8700. I was using the BB email address and forwarding. Now, I just setup with a BES server and I can't get it to BT sync. It's not that bad cause I don't have to PIM sync anymore but I still sync a password program. Ugh... I guess in the process of re-installing the BB software, something got messed up.
Like you said, it's weird cause I can pair the PC and BB in Control Panel but it just won't see the BB in Connection Manager.
