Please Login to Remove!

For the life of me i cant get bluetooth to work after upgrading to windows 7. I downloaded the new drivers for bluetooth from broadcom. I downloaded the update for DM. Desk manager will connect to my phone. But it craps out as soon as I go to sync. it gives an error of "connector specific error"

find a solution to this yet? I am having the exact same problem running win 7 ultimate on a sony vaio z with my 9630-i get connectivity via bluetooth, but perhaps 1 in 10 of my sync attempts works properly. For the time being I have resorted to google calendar sync to avoid having to tether on the go and carry more crap than I need to on a daily basis.

You might check this post at CB about problems with Widcomm/Broadcom drivers. I have read they are not compatible with Desktop Manager. This may be the case in Win 7 also.

How to brute-force uninstall Widcomm bluetooth enumerator - BlackBerry Forums at CrackBerry.com

I could not get bluetooth on my netbook that has Widcomm drivers to work with my BlackBerry.

I tried the method above this morning without success. Even with the Microsoft drivers in place, the bluetooth sync still fails, if not moreso than on the OEM Sony Widcommm drivers as now instead of timing out, I am receiving an error message.

Looks like this is simply a windows 7 compatibility issue. My research has indicated this is a problem on various platforms from Dell to Sony to HP, etc. I am a VERY competent computer user, and it appears that in this case either RIM or Microsoft are going to have to address the issue. Given the number of BBerry users on the PC platform, and the recent successful launch of win 7, this is going to come to a head sooner rather than later.

no, it is not fixed.

the link you gave fixes the missing drivers issue, nothing more.

from my own experience:
after the missing driver issue was fixed on my desktop running win 7 there is a problem of disconnecting from DM. the BB would stay connected even after sync is completed and DM is closed.

on my notebook though, there was no missing driver issue. the drivers are installed automatically alright. but whenever I try to pair my BB with the notebook (on win 7 too) it is giving me the "unable to pair" message after I input the pairing password.

I have had the same issue, and basically have stopped trying until there is more information available.

for now I am running google calendar sync and manually updating my contacts via usb when necessary. seems to keep me from having to even interface with the computer at all, which is nice.
