God, I $#^@&!* HATE HATE HATE
I can't get my Verizon Wireless 8830 to do ANYTHING with my Toshiba Bluetooth 2.0 PCMCIA adapter and Windows XP!
After establishing DUN and Serial connections, the DUN connection won't connect--I get a message within a second or two within my attempt to connect that says "Connection Failed." Nothing more.
The BlackBerry Desktop Manager Bluetooth settings are grayed out. Nothing I do--not connecting with the serial Bluetooth connections, not restarting the machine, nothing--will get the BDM to connect over Bluetooth with my 8830.
Dammit, I'm an MCSE with 12 years of experience in my field! If I
can't figure this out on my own with the full Internet at my immediate disposal after TWO DAYS, how the $%#^@! are regular users supposed to!!!???
Man, Bluetooth is absolutely terrible. Just terrible. The protocol should be totally scrapped and re-written from the beginning.
