Default Blackberry Device Manager won't detect phone

Please Login to Remove!

I have 4.1 (Chinese 7100G) installed on my TMobile 7105t. I have 4.1.0.10 software installed on my laptop. I have a Dell D600 with built in Bluetooth using the Microsoft drivers. Phone is paired and trusted fine but when I click on Configure Bluetooth, Add, (flashlight does it's thing) it comes back with

BlackBerry Device Manager is unable to locate any Bluetooth devices that support Blackberry Bluetooth desktop services. Please verify that your device has been properly configured and click Search Again.

Then notta. Any thoughts?

It does on two computers....I must be missing a step.....anyone?

When I am in Microsoft Bluetooth Devices I see it show "Connected" for a second and then drop. When I look at the Properties...Services I don't see anything in there. Also on the phone I don't see any services listed on the computer name. Should it?

I have a similar setup with my BB7290, OS4.1 (Chinese) on Cingular.
The Bluetooth USB dongle software seems to be installed ok, but the Desktop manager software doesnt find my BB7290 even though its paired.

On my Blackberry, the Bluetooth services are listed as :

Headset, Handsfree, Desktop Connectivity and Wireless Bypass

I dont know whether this is a flaky Bluetooth issue, or a flaky RIM software issue.

If you have a data cable I would suggest using that. I would also try deleting all trusted devices from your computer and turning off/moving out of range any other bluetooth device that might interfere with it. Then try reconnecting the BB via bluetooth. If you still have problems, use windows update or use the dell website to make sure you have the latest drivers for the bluetooth hardware in your notebook.

I've tried all that. It connects with all my other BT devices, but not the 7105. I think it's the handset.

Default similiar problem - more information

Hi,
I have a HP nw8000 laptop with built in bluetooth (WIDCOMM driver). It pair's fine with the BB7100g but generates the same error as above when trying to connect with the device manager.
"Blackberry Device managers is unable to locate any bluetooth devices that support ... etc"

Then I installed a Microsoft USB bluethooth adaptor, paired the device and bingo it worked first time, and could sync the PIM.

So I looked a little further at the differences:
From the BB I selected the 'Device Properties" of the bluethooth device's.
The inbuilt bluetooth device (the one not working) showed "headset" "headset" as services on the laptop. (I also notice that when the BB and the laptop connected they connected only on this service)

The 'Device Properties' via the MS bluetooth device (the one that worked) did not show any services.

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the way I have it setup. Can any one help?

Thanks

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry7290/4.0.2 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1)

This looks like a RIM issue to me. You can pair the pc and the Blackberry using the Microsoft adapter but can you sync the blackberry with the pc? IE: transfer files and install programs. I personally don't use bluetooth to sync with my pc but I have used the bluetooth on my BB with a headset and to transfer files between it and another phone.
