Exclamation BLuetooth trouble just like everyone else

Please Login to Remove!

I have a Blackberry 8310. i can send and receive faxes, get my email, and sync with my usb cable but, I've recently purchased a IO gear bluetooth adapter so I may sync all my stuff via Bluetooth. i have had little success. i am able to get my audio to play thru my 8310 to my laptop (dell Latitude D800) but thats it. I would like to be able to get on my office network with it so I may easily print and or transfer files if needed. My Laptop does not have a built in bluetooth. Any suggestions.

Thanks Jim 154

AFAIK you can't attach your BB to your network via BT.

Are you trying to get the Desktop Software to connect over Bluetooth? If you installed the driver software that came with the Bluetooth adapter, you've probably got Widcomm or another 3rd party installed instead.

RIM's software will only work with the basic Windows drivers (see blackberry.com/btsc/articles/835/KB04132_f.SAL_Public.html#Task 2).

My experience is that if you uninstall the custom drivers and reboot the PC, Windows will automatically install its own drivers. With Microsoft's drivers, you can pair the BlackBerry and connect using Bluetooth as well as USB.

Incidentally, Microsoft's Bluetooth drivers don't support Bluetooth audio, so you're going to have to choose between audio or RIM's data transfer capability. RIM has an email account set up for suggestions: bbsuggestions@rim.net; please be polite.
