Just bought an 8700c for Cingular. I am using a Belking Bluetooth adapter on a Thinkpad T43 laptop.
I checked http://www.blackberry.com/knowledgec...50&vernum=12#2
and verified that what they say for system reqts is ok in mine.
The problem: Even though when I click on Blackberry Device Manager, it shows 'connected' to my phone, Desktop Manager shows disconnected (Ive selected bluetooth in the connection)
Couple of notes:
1. The instructions say WIDCOM driver is not supported and I must have MS installed. It looks like I have MS installed (when I double clicked on the bluetooth icon, I saw bluetooth devices not "my bluetooth places"). However, when I check Device manager, I see, under bluetooth radios, "Belkin Bluetooth Adapter" and "Microsoft Bluetooth Enumerator" - is tis ok ?
2. The instructions say that when I discover the phone and say, create a pin, 99999999, in the connection settings, I should see "bluetooth-PIN:99999999". I DONT. Instead, I see "bluetooth-PIN:203xxxxxxx" where "203xxxxxx" is the hardcoded PIN of my phone when I click on its status - though my "bluetooth" association PIN is 9999999
So anyway, at the end, desktop manager shows disconnected
I even tried recycling my battery did not work
