Default Desktop Mgr always asks if it's OK to Connect via Bluetooth

Please Login to Remove!

Greetings,

I can't seem to find where to "tell" BB desktop manager to allow my new 8300 to connect to my PC via Bluetooth automatically. Once connected all works perfectly - but I am always asked if it is OK to allow connection.

This worked with my 7290 on another PC using the same BT dongle.

TIA,

Wayne

I can offer one possible solution: go into "Bluetooth Option" and find the device you're trying to trust (trusted devices allow connections automatically) and then press the ball to select the menu item "Device Properties".

Under "Trusted", change the answer to "Yes" - it's probably set to "Ask" right now.

Hope this helps.

Thanks for your suggestion. Currently is does say yes.
Additionaly, the BB seems happy to connect - it the PC's desktop manager that's giving me prompt.
Again, thanks for your suggestion.
