I am using a Dell Inspiron E1505 and blackberry 8800 with latest OS and desktop software.

any ideas???
My Dell D620 uses Dell's Truemobile 350 bluetooth module and it works fine with the Windows bluetooth stack. The thirds party software gives you the ability to use ALL of the functionality in the bluetooth radio but I seriously doubt it is required. In my experience, the Windows native bluetooth stack is pretty stripped down but it does what it says it will do pretty well.

Maybe a dumb question but is the blackberry discoverable? If so, make sure the Dell's bluetooth is discoverable and search for it from the blackberry. Good luck.
