Re: How To Set up Bluetooth PC connectivity (Desktop sync)
I have a Latitude D630 with Dell Wireless 360 Bluetooth Module (think it's Toshiba Bluetooth Stack). I was able to pair the laptop and Blackberry 8700. I also completed the bluetooth connection but in Blackberry Desktop Manager the bluetooth options were greyed out. I could only connect with USB cord - fine but not why I got bluetooth installed on the laptop!

We found a simple workaround (simple had we known about it originally that is!). When using Bluetooth Settings and completing a New Conntection don't use Express Mode (which is recommended). Mine automatically assiged COM40 which Desktop Manager didn't offer as an option in the dropdown list. Instead use the Custom Mode and you assign a COM port that is reflected in Desktop Manager dropdown list. COM9 on mine worked great. Once I had the same COM port assigned on both the Bluetooth Settings and Desktop Manager it works fine. NOTE: The bluetooth options are still greyed out and they are NOT checked. But since the COM ports match up, it works wireless.
