Default Bluetooth Setup

Please Login to Remove!

I got a new Bluetooth dongle:

Amazon.com: Bluetooth USB 2.0 Micro Adapter Dongle: Electronics

I was able to pair the phone with my computer right away (I can see my computer from the phone and I can see my phone from my computer). But, I am unable to sync my outlook info from one device to another. I want to be able to sync the devices any time I am within range of my computer.

Can someone give me some advice on how to go about doing this? The dongle did not come with any instructions on how to do this.

Thank you so much.

I have been searching for synch methods, but everything I find is similar to this:

How to synchronize my BlackBerry with my Desktop Computer (Microsoft Windows) | BlackBerryInsight

Is it possible to synch without actually using the usb cord? How can I do this wireless? Thank you.

Hello? Anybody out there? I cannot believe no one has ever tried to do what I want to do here. Is there any advice at all? Thanks.

The problem isn't the bluetooth dongle. I assume you are using the Blackberry Desktop Manager. Unfortunately there is a bit of a quirk: if you use anything OTHER THAN Windows' built in bluetooth drivers, the DM software won't recognize your bluetooth device, and cannot sync wirelessly. It is a well documented issue, and RIM doesn't seem to be in any rush to fix it.

I know your pain...kind of dumb not being able to use a feature they provide, but that's the game unfortunately.
