| | Bluetooth dongle compatibility problem
Please Login to Remove!
I have a new 8700 (very nice BTW) with T-mobile UK. My PC is running XP Pro with SP2 so I have the right kit.
I bought a Bluesoleil Bluetooth dongle so I could do bluetooth synching - the dongle was advertised as "8700 compatible".
SO far, if I use the Bluesoleil software, I can pair the phone and the dongle. However the Blackberry desktop software does not give me a Bluetooth otion - it is greyed out.
Then I read on the Blackberry knowledge base that you must use Microsoft Bluettoth drivers, not third party. But when I try to install the dongle this way, I get "driver not found" errors.
Anyone got any advice?
