    Question Blackberry 8700 and PCMCIA Bluetooth cards

    Advertisement



    Hi,

    Complete novice here, so please be kind ...

    I want to have my Blackberry wirelessly sync with my Toshiba notebook but my notebook doesn't have Bluetooth. I'd rather NOT use a USB adapter because I've not had great luck with those things staying in securely.

    I've been told that I can get a PCMCIA-Bluetooth card that will fit neatly, but I've also been warned that (a) these are not widely available; and (b) Blackberries (I have an 8700) are known to have problems recognizing the bluetooth signal from them. I would appreciate any learning that is out there on this issue because I have been beating my head against the wall trying to find out if this is a lost cause.

    Thanks in advance ...

    8700 series are only suppored to pair with headset devices. They dont have bt 2.0. I should include at this time.

    Hello roaoraem, welcome to pinstack. I believe what you are looking to do will be available with OS 4.2, when it becomes available for your BB.
