I have read many articles on folks having issues syncing the 7100g via Bluetooth on Windoose. The spec even says for headset use only.
So here is my experience.
I have successfully synced up via Bluetooth. on Outlook and Lotus Notes. The capabilities are there, you just have to unlock them.
Here is what you need.

Windows XP SP2
and a Bluetooth device that compatible. What does compatible mean? It mean you should be able to plug in the Bluetooth device and have windows support via the generic MS drives. I used a D-Link USB Bluetooth (kinda pricey, $35). But works great. Creative CB2436 Works as well. I did not test with Creative I just know it does not need drivers on XP SP2
Note Third party drivers don’t work. (I think the reason is that the BB need Bluetooth emulation driver that SP2 has pure speculation It may be a totally different reason. )
After device is installed the Bluetooth logo should be in the taskbar or desktop.
Set it to discover. Then discover it via the 7100g and pair. (Optionally you and trust the device with the device.)
Install the desktop software
Go to BlackBerry Device Manager Right Click properties and click Enable Bluetooth support. Then click configure Bluetooth and
Add device. WALA you’re good to go.
To sync go to launch the Desktop client and go to connection settings and select Bluetooth.
Then launch Intellisync or (Companion Link 2.0 for Lotus Notes) and configure your PIM and off you go. If you need help email mail me I will try to help you out. It’s a pretty nice device I had to monkey around with it for a while. I also got some cool themes loaded.
