    8700 and BT Synch

    Advertisement



    I am hearing some conflicting information about the ability to use bluetooth to synch with the 8700. From what I know about the BT integration in the device, it is for voice only, so you can't use it to synch data.

    Now I am hearing that some have been able to set it up to synch with a PC/Laptop/Other device.

    I am also hearing that OS 4.2 will enable the GPS feature in the 8700.

    Can any of you 8700 experts shed any light on these?

    As far as I know about the 4.2 OS, it is not available for your device. I am sure someone will be around that has this phone that will be able to answer the BT questions.

    I have an 8703 with verizon 4.1 OS and Desktop 4.2 at home and as soon as I walk i the door it connects via BT and syncs everything I had told it to sync. Yes it does work with the newest desktop software. The media organizer on the new desktop is not functional with OS 4.1 but other than that it is great, even does back ups for me.

    You don't need OS 4.2 for GPS. Plenty of people use 4.1 with their GPS pucks.

    You don't need DM 4.2 for BT sync either. Since no one on any forum site can be bothered to find this, here's the link to the RIM knowledgebase article that I've mentioned over and over. The revision date is 11/3/2006 but it has been around longer than that:
