I have my BB (running on a BES) since a couple of days. It works great, but have some startup problems. One of it is that I cannot get the desktop connection to work over BT instead of USB. I (successfully) did all the patching to the PC's BT drivers that I found in this forum. Now it seems that my BB should have a BT service running called 'Desktop connectivity'. Obviously I do not have that service running, so:
My 8830 was connected to a BES. I have wiped it and then wiped it again and then supposedly updated my policy.bin file. I can connect to my 8830 with a USB cable just fine from my Thinkpad.
However, I can only partially connect via Bluetooth. My IBM Bluetooth devices icon shows the worldphone paired - I had to enter security keys to allow the pairing. But when I use the Blackberry device manager it shows nothing and add shows no devices available. I get no further connectivity. However, interestingly, when I search for devices in the Blackberry add a device, the blue LED flashes on my BB.
I notice on my BB that there is no Desktop Connectivity Service - hence the wiping and installing a blank policy.bin file. But this service still isn't there. What can I do next to restore that service? I figure that is my next stumbling block.
