8703e and bluetooth
 
Ok new issue, i cannot get my desktop manager to sync with my laptopn via bluetooth, in have xp pro sp2 and have checked and rechecked all settings and drivers. Verizon goes right back on notice if they have crippled the bluetooth sync option, this is different from OBEX so WTF?????

Hmmmm.... strange. I have an unsupported D-link dongle and I got it to work just fine. It took a few times between the Desktop Mgr and pairing but its fine now. Be sure you select Trusted on the BB for the paired device.

junior1790 09-23-2006 03:05 PM

Try doing a right-click on the DM in the system bar and setting up bluetooth. There's an article on blackberry.com/support/ as well on the Bluetooth forum that tell you how its done.

Is there a fix for this problem...... anyone? All the tutorials that I read refer to 8700 series but does not work for the 8703e.

I have the same problem that Junior has, my "enable blackberry connection" is greyed out. I have an IBM integrated bluetooth feature on my laptop and a Verizon 8703e.

It will work fine with your Thinkpad. I got mine paired & sync'd in about 2 minutes. I can't find the URL I got the instructions from, but it went exactly as they said it would.

Edit:
The instructions are for an 8700, but worked fine with my t41 & vzw 8703e

I got it to work, thanks. Simply deleted the driver and re-installed it with the pre-loaded drivers and it used the windows drivers for the enumerator and software. I have a T60, which comes with a Broadcom Bluetooth Modem.

i have a 8703e and cant sync via bluetooth. I have it paired with my laptop and when i plug in the adapter the desktop manager asks me if i want to connect via bluetooth, when i click yes it connects but the desktop manager still says "disconnected" and will not sync what can i do please pm me or pin me at 32b09322

lmc0434 10-31-2006 01:17 PM

no one can answer this???

jgb@etree 10-31-2006 02:58 PM

Verizon's not blocking it, because I have it working fine on my VZW 8703e.

First thing I did was pair the BB and my PC. I then went into the desktop manager and finished the config. I don't remember the exact steps, but googling or searching this forum should both yield results. I had found a great step x step by via google, and a few days later found the same instructions on this site.

jgb@etree 10-31-2006 03:03 PM

Step x Step - Direct from RIM

Livelink - Redirection

I found this link here:

Gotta love the search button!

lmc0434 11-01-2006 09:49 PM

i did a search and i followed both directions here and on rim's site the problem is that the desktop will not connect to the device the services portion on the computer is empty but when i go into the desktop manager (4.2) it will say how long its been connected via bluetooth
