Default Trouble with Bluetooth Keyboard Connection

Please Login to Remove!

I just got the Freedom Keyboard. I have installed the driver, and the keyboard menu is now appearing in the applications on my 7130e. The keyboard is also showing up in the Bluetooth menu as a paired device. However, the keyboard is not working with my 7130e, and the indicator light is only flashing green once each second, not twice.

What am I doing wrong?

your only hope is to try the free-trial. I think you'll like their drivers better. it seems to work better than the Freedom drivers.

What operating system are you using? For 4.1, there is a sxecurity setting you have to adjust for keyboard injection. Contact Freedom Keyboards support. They helped me ...

True..True... but can your Freedom keyboard dooooo all this?

* Hotkey Mode Switching - Allow user to switch between modes using hotkey
- Switching Hotkey - User defined
- Audible Warning - Enable / Disable
- Audible Warning Volume - User adjustable
- Warning msg. Screen - Enable / Disable
- Warning msg. Screen Timer - User adjustable

* BlackBerry Mode - BlackBerry device key emulation more than 90% emulated
- Hold keydown to change to upper case letters
- Keydown + Up/Down Arrow to insert special characters
- Alphanumeirc key input for dialing phone numbers
- Hotkey Cut / Copy / Paste

* Standard Mode - PC style keyboard emulation more than 90% emulated
- Hold keydown, repeating alphanumeric & special characters

oh and a couple more...

* BlackBerry Mode - BlackBerry device key emulation more than 90% emulated
- Hold keydown while in HOME SCREEN, assign Quick dial phone number to key

* Home Screen
- Up Arrow moves between Icons/Rows "Vertically"
- Down Arrow moves between Icons/Rows "Vertically"
- Left Arrow moves between Icons "Horizontally"
- Right Arrow moves between Icons "Horizontally"
- Number keys open the phone app. so you can type phone number from home screen

and oh yeah my Shasta keyboard

has anyone successfully set the OS4.1 INJECTION keyboard to ALLOW on their 7100g using Cingular software for a standalone unit, no BES used? Mine are permanently set to DENY and needs some download to override? so KB's wont connect. [email address]

I HAD previously purchased this very same keyboard from PhoenixWireless and it was a pieice of garbage. The reseller was not helpful nor was the Mfr. For the life of me, I couldnt get it working properly with my 7520 OS 4.0.

Does anyone know of a better solution out there?

Default Connection

Just got my new Shasta Stowaway for my BB 7250.

Keyboard is discovered via Bluetooth and installed. Never a BES on this BB 7250.

Firmware 4.1.0.268

But "connect to keyboard" doesn't show up in options for email or browser, and typing on keyboard doesn't show up on screen (despite blinking" discoverable" light).

Has anyone had this problem and fixed it?

EDIT: Software upgrade fixed it.
