How did you get it working? If I set up my BES, will it then be enabled for bluetooth sync? I read somewhere that it's possible to sync contacts information that way.

WIndows Xp sp2
Desktop Manager 4.1
Blackberry 8700

Bluetooth from Kensington (Driver is Widcomm)
installed with driver, then completely deleted any trace of the driver.

Windows doesn't recognize the device as a bluetooth device. just "USB Device". can't pick the microsoft bluetooth driver for it because it doesn't come up in the Add hardware list under manufactuer Microsoft. only bluetooth device listed is "Bluetooth HID"

I'm going to assume that this bluetooth puppy won't work at all. but i'll play with trying to get it to use Windows Bluetooth driver.
I emailed Kensington and asked when they would have microsoft certified drivers but no answer for 1 week.

UPDATE:
This Kensington Bluetooth Adapater, model 33085 (A) is not even a Blue tooth device without the Kensington Driver. So in short, don't buy this one for this purpose. Two emails to tech support went unanswered (asking about using native XP driver with it, and if they are planning on coming out with certified drivers).
Search keywords (so others may avoid my mistake)
Bluetooth
Blackberry
Widcomm
Sync

Default MS Driver - can't install

I too am having trouble installing the "MS BT stack" on my hp nc6000. Simply uninstalling the existing WIDCOMM driver and allowing the add new hardware wizard to install one on its own doesn't work. It just throws the WIDCOMM back on. I followed the advice of searching for INF files in c:\windows\inf that relate to my bt driver's extracted files but none are found. Perhaps someone who has this working can look at their driver properties and tell me what the file name of the MS driver is? Or, additional advice is appreciated.

Thanks for the info folks. Just downloaded and installed the Hong Kong release of 4.1 onto my 7100t. Had some trouble with bluetooth sync ("Enable Bluetooth Support" was greyed out in Device Mgr properties) until I saw the link posted in this thread. Here it is for those who are having the same issue:

I just want to say that for anyone using a Dell Inspiron (I have a 630m with internal Bluetooth) that is having trouble getting that freakin "Enable Bluetooth Support" checkbox in the Device Manager "enabled", I can relate the way that I did it, and it's a little different to the way that the BB KB article that has been referenced a few times on these threads describes it.
The key step is to get rid of the bth.inf file when you uninstall the Toshiba BT drivers. I uninstalled the Toshiba drivers heaps of times, rebooting each time and expecting to see xp install Microsofts version of the driver (per the article), but each time it just said that it had found a mysterious "USB device" that it couldn't do anything with.
But - once I renamed the "bth.inf" file (which is in the c:\windows\inf directory) to bth.bak and rebooted, xp found and installed all the Microsoft BT drivers with no problem.
The only issue I have now is that I need v4.1 software on the 7100g and Telstra hasn't authorised that from RIM yet. I can pair with no prob, but can't sync. I'm checking to see when that will happen, but I'm not holding my breath. Kinda disappointing as I had expected that a handheld with Bluetooth would be able to sync using Bluetooth (naive huh).
Cheers,
Tim

Default Cannot pair 7100t 4.1 with Dell M20

I have uninstalled the Toshiba drivers that came with the Dell and installed the windows drivers back. The Dell Wireless 350 Bluetooth Module is a Microsoft supported USB device.

In my Blackberry Device Manager I am able to check "Enable Bluetooth Support".

On the Blackberry, I have enabled the bluetooth and made the device discoverable and given it a unique name.

When I seach to add devices it does not find the Blackberry.....

I have rebooted both the computer and the Blackberry a couple of times.

Any suggestions?

PS: When I had the earlier Toshiba driver, I could pair to the Blackberry, but had the "Enable Bluetooth Support" within the device manager grayed out.

Thanks for any help--I have wasted a lot of time on this already.
