Default Bluetooth keyboard - ThinkOutside

Please Login to Remove!

I just bought a bluetooth keyboard for my 7100i --

I was VERY disappointed to find out that I now need my IT system admin to "un-lock" some security features via a proceedure on the server.

I've made my request, and am still waiting for a reply(1 week ago). Apparently the 7100i needs to have the EventInjection rule relaxed to allow the keyboard to work.

I'm hoping the admin doesn't comeback to me and say sorry -- it's a security risk - no can do!

I would have hoped ThinkOutside would have warned of such a requirement - to perspective customers. I bought the device as NEW on Ebay - but did my reasearch prior to buying. It appeared that there were no such issues. They even bragged how ona particular model the driver could be install over the air!

buyer beware..... fingers crossed.

Default ThinkOutside Keyboard

I'm using this keyboard with my tablet pc and wouldlove to also use it with my 7100i. Like you it would not pair with the 7100. Can you elaborate on the setting that need to be changed?

Thanks
