Default Bluetooth for 8830

Please Login to Remove!

Which bluetooth adapter can I purchase that is compatible with my phone? I wish to be able to sync my contacts, email and other info with my pc via bluetooth.
Also can I sync OTA to my PC without bluetooth. Thanks.

I have had success (of sorts) with the Kensington Micro usb dongle. It really is pretty tiny.

I use it with a Vista Home Premium Desktop. I couched it as "of sorts" since the drivers were not all that easy to deal with and the ones on the cd that came with it did NOT work. It did give me error messages but then connected anyway. I use it with Desktop Manager. I was also able to actually transfer a file using it apart from DM but that was just to see if it could be done.
