Unhappy BB Curve + Bluetooth + Vista = Aaargh!

Please Login to Remove!

I've read a few dozen forum posts and tried as many ways - hoping somebody here can help me get this working (please don't post a link to the BB site, the driver download page or any of the other obvious places... I have been there!)

Here's the deal - BB Curve 8330, Vista Home Premium, Bluetooth onboard the PC using native Vista interface (no 3rd party bluetooth manager).

on the PC, I can add a new bluetooth device, and my BB is discovered - but it won't complete the pairing. I have tried with and without a passkey, and it doesn't cause any type of prompt on the blackberry.

on the BB, I can add a new bluetooth device, and the computer is discovered, but that's as far as i get -again, the pairing cannot be completed.

I have also tried rebooting the pc, and a battery pull on the BB - now in a major state of frustration and wasted time over this. Hopeful somebody can make this simple thing seem simple again.
