imagine! bb support being not helpful!

my guess is they told you a couple of things there;


1. dtm 4.1 does not support vista (and vice versa) .... and that;

2. dtm 4.1 is the only dtm reccomended for the 7100i nextel.

are you within these guidelines? if not, what do you have for dtm on your vista pc?
also what type of bluetooth are you trying to pair?

I have this same problem on my HP WinXP Pro laptop
I have bluetooth built in, but the option for bluetooth sync is grayed out.
If anyone has fixed this problem, I would like to know how.

Desktop Manager only works with the Microsoft Bluetooth driver. Are you using that one or a third party driver (e.g. WIDCOMM)?

You need to go a bit further to check the driver.

And were does one find the above mentioned Microsoft Bluetooth Drivers? The Bluetooth device I have installed has drivers made by Broadcomm.

The Microsoft Bluetooth driver is part of Windows XP SP2 and Windows Vista. There is a thread on this forum somewhere detailing how to get your Bluetooth device to work with it.

Here's a sticky from the Bluetooth Connection forum: How to use the Native Bluetooth Drivers with Most Bluetooth Adapters
