Default 8703e Bluetooth to Laptop Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I just got this 8703e and am in the 15 day evaluation period w/ Verizon so I need to work out all the issues rather quickly. I cannot seem to get my Dell Inspiron to recognize my BB to transfer my PIM data via BT. The BB recognizes the Laptop but LT cannot recognize the BB except to use it for voice applications like a microphone (imagine this is for the bluetooth headset that came w/ the BB). I have spent several hours on the phone w/ both Dell and Verizon w/ no success. Verizon thought it might have to do w/ Dell using a 3rd party Bluetooth maker that disables the Microsoft BT Manager that BB needs to establish communication w/ the Laptop. Dell dismissed this and said that it was a Blackberry issue. I have been able to transfer all my PIM data via USB but it would be nice to do this via BT. Thanks for any assistance. Elina
