Unhappy

I just bought the Belkin PC Card BT Adapter and it does NOT work with SP2 drivers alone. Does anyone know of a PC Card BT adapter that does?

I know the USB ones work but anyone with a laptop knows that if you have to plug in a usb adapter everytime you want to sync, you just might as well just plug in the blackberry itself....

I assume you DON'T use the software that comes with the adapter..... just plug it in and let XP-SP2 find the driver, correct?
Correct. Plug it in and in 30 seconds XP has it installed properly. After that, it takes about 3 seconds to recognize each time it's plugged in.

Thumbs up Another working Bluetooth adapter

I tried the Linksys Bluetooth adapter yesterday and it worked even though it is not on the list that I have seen of approved adapters. Even though the instructions clearly state to install the supplied software, I did not and just connected it to the USB port. After 60-90 seconds, it was recognized and all the Microsoft drivers were used. After rebooting (even though Windows did not prompt me to reboot), I was able to enable bluetooth support in the device manager.

The only other issue that I had to get around is that the PC did not find the phone (7100i). I found out the reason was due to the fact that the phone was already paired with my headset. The moment I turned off the headset, the PC discovered the phone. I am not sure if this is a limitation of the phone or bluetooth, but neverthelesss, I am now syncing remotely. Now if I could only find a way to clear the prompts that intellisync displays or to do a periodic sync....

Default Why Bother??

You know...this was something I asked about last month and was told it wasn't possible (by Jibi??).

After I thought about it for a while, I decided that it wouldn't be worth connecting my 7100g to my tablet pc via Bluetooth....what's the benefit?? You use up your battery instead of getting a charge from USB....especially if you are travelling (which is when I more likely need a charge).

The only benefit I can see is if you do not have any free USB ports left and you are okay plugging into the wall while bluetooth does the synch......hmmmmm...maybe I'll try that.

Here is one huge benefit to BT sync: You disable e-mail redirection without needing to not keep your phone with you at all times.

I, personally, have no need to get e-mails to my BB while I'm sitting at my desk. Cradling handheld all day isn't a good option, but having to remember to pick it up every time I walk away is a huge hassle, and I'd leave it half the time, potentially missing calls.

With BT sync, I just get up and go and I don't worry about my phone. I come back and it's cradled back up, no more e-mail redirection while i'm at my desk, can't beat it.

It does take it's tole on the batter, but with my standard 7100i battery, I can go 12 hours, using BT Sync for 9 of those, and be at 50% battery, with moderate phone and e-mail usage.

When I leave my desk for extended periods of time, I disable BT to save battery.

There are a few guys on the BT forum who use extended batteries in their phone, using BT all day (for headsets) and indicate they talk 2000-4000 minutes a month and have had no issues of running out of battery power.

hello all ive finally got my 7100i to sync with my hp zd8000 with a widcomm BT. its pretty simple. first your must disable your BT connection then remove the software from add/remove. next oen your device manager and scan for new hardware. follow the window wizard and it will install a ms driver. and your done. the check box on desk software is no longer grey. good luck. thanks retrohunter for the site above very helpful

I tried that process on my Dell Lattitude D800 and although I deleted the Widcomm driver (Dell) the add new hardware wizard keeps finding the Dell Tru Mobile driver which is Widcomm. I searched the MS XP website to try to find a MS driver to sub during the add new hardware process but could not find any on the site. Nextel told me they don't support it.

For me the why BT sync is it is more simple than having wires in the way on my desk and b/c I would like to use the functionality that I sought out in a LT and phone.

Can anyone tell me where to find the MS driver?

Thanks!

does your pc have sp2 installed??? that where the windows bt drivers come from... after you remove the widcomm drivers in add and remove. backup the drivers and remover them from the pc... that way windows will install its driver and not widcomms.

Possible Solution to Your Problem:

I had the same problem, and i have been fighting with this for about two weeks with my 7100i! After a little trial and error, i think i found the solution! I have a Dell Insiprion 9100! It is a little glitch with the DLL files in the blackberry desktop software! Try this out and let me know what happens!

Click 'Start'
Click 'Run'
Type, 'Command' or 'CMD' and hit enter

Navigate To:
C:\Progra~1\Common~1\Resear~1\USBDri~1
When There Type these two commands in this order!!!
bbdevmgr.exe /regserver -- HIT ENTER
regsvr32 bbdevmgrps.dll -- HIT ENTER
NOTE: After you typed that last command it should have brought you back to a windows XP desktop and said something about succedded?!?! If it did, Then go back to your command prompt!

Navigate To:
C:\Progra~1\Common~1\Resear~1\RIMDev~1
When There Type these two commands in this order!!!
rimdevicemanager.exe /regserver -- HIT ENTER
regsvr32 rimdevicemanagerps.dll -- HIT ENTER
NOTE: After you typed that last command it should have brought you back to a windows XP desktop and said something about succedded?!?! If it did, continue! If It did, close out your command prompt!

MAKE SURE YOUR BLACKBERRY DEVICE MANAGER IS NOT RUNNING!!!!
AT THIS POINT, GO AND PAIR YOUR PHONE BACK UP, IF IT IS ALREADY PAIRED REMOVE IT AND REPAIR IT! WHEN YOU GET TO THE SCREEN WHERE IT SAYS ABOUT THE PASSKEY, LET YOUR COMPUTER CHOOSE A PASSKEY FOR YOU FOR THE FIRST TIME!!!! BEFORE CONTINUEING MAKE SURE YOUR BLACKBERRY SHOWS THE TWO LITTLE ARROWS TO THE RIGHT OF THE BLUETOOTH ICON BY THE SIGNAL!

START YOUR BLACKBERRY DEVICE MANAGER, THEN CLICK CONFIGURE BLUETOOTH, DELETE YOUR OLD BLACKBERRY DEVICE, AND ADD THE NEW ONE! AND HIT OK! YOU SHOULD NOW SEE YOUR BLACKBERRY START TO INTERACT WITH YOUR COMPUTER!

What phone is that for? 7100t? What device software?

I don't want to go through such a complicated procedure if it won't even be worth it in the end.

Its unbelievable to ask that question after all the times this information has been posted....

Bluetooth sync requires:

Handheld OS version 4.1 or later
Desktop Manager version 4.1
One of the specified Bluetooth adapters
Windows XP with SP2

If you don't have all of the above it does not matter which device you have, cause you won't be using bluetooth sync. If you have all of the above (which at the time of this post is only available for the NEXTEL 7100i as mentioned numerous times already), you can use bluetooth sync.

Get it?!

Maybe you should try reading when people actually answer your questions instead of starting four or five different threads on the same topic and asking the same questions over and over again. Reading really isn't that hard, its taught to most people when they are very young. Maybe you should check out this great site for some help.... it has helped many people!!!

What is too funny is the fact he wasted 10 minutes on 1. writing the answer again and 2. writing the rebuttal..

If it would take you 10 minutes to compose a 3 or 4 sentence post, you need that link just as bad....
