Exclamation Device Manger unable to see my 8830

Please Login to Remove!

Hello,
I have a BB 8830/verizon with bluetooth running 4.2.2.

We have an enterprise server at work.

On my home laptoprunning vista home premium I run device manager 4.2.26 and desktop manager 4.2.2

I can manually snyc via usb but I first must go on my device, select each application that I want to snyc (calendar/contacts/notes/to-do) and, under options change the 'wireless synchronization' option to 'no'.

I can then sync sucessfully with my home laptop.

I reverse the steps above and I am back in business with wireless sync with my work enterprise server.

Here's the question: can I do the above home sync via bluetooth?

I have my 8830 and my laptop paired sucessfully.

However, when I attempt to enable my device in the Device Manager on my laptop,
After I choose 'enable bluetooth support " and "configure bluetooth" the response is that "blackberry manager cannot find a bluetooth device that supports blackberry bluetooth desktop devices"

assuming that I can do this, am I missing a driver or is the enterprise server activation somehow interfering?

Thanks for your help!

Will

There is an EXCELLENT chance that VZN has crippled that feature, as they are notorious for doing on ALL of their handsets. I KNOW that Alltel has disabled the BT connectivity, at ALLTEL's request, per RIM Rep?! No reasoning, just because they can! And YES - it IS a pain in the posterior muscle!!

Thanks Bigmark, but I dont think this is a Verizon thing as there is no telephony/network involved. This is a RIM/Bluetooth/Enterprise/Vista thing.

I will update to 4.3 however and give it a try...

I am having the same problem, my 8830 pairs with my computer, but Desktop Manager will not recognize the device. I need this to work or I'll lose all my contacts. My USB connection is broken.
