    Question Yes or No, and explain Bluetooth sync VZW (RESOLVED)

    Advertisement



    Ok. So recently I have wanted to start syncing the 8330 via desktop manager via bluetooth. But I can't. The options are grayed out. I've spent time researching the forums and have had no luck. So...

    Can you use bluetooth to sync with a Verizon Wireless 8330 CDMA curve? Why?

    If so... what steps should I have been taking to accomplish this?

    Everyone's opinion is welcome but I would also like to hear from those who have VZW. Thanks in advance.

    Information...

    VZW 8330 Curve
    OS 4.3.0.127
    platform 3.1.0.72
    BIS


    This is basically how I got Microsoft Bluetooth Stack to be in use rather than my Toshiba Bluetooth Stack....

    Information:
    Dell XPS M140
    internal bluetooth
    Windows XP
    service pack 2

    Also note that NO BT devices were in use during this procedure... None before either. It's probably best not to use a BT mouse and keyboard while doing this. Also take into consideration that this worked for me. You should continue to research and decide on your own terms whether you want to do this with these instructions or someone elses.

    OK...

    1. I backed up the Toshiba stack, downloaded the installer for the Toshiba stack, and downloaded the installer for my "Dell Wireless 350 Bluetooth Internal Module" (driver) just in case it didn't work. This isn't necessary if you know this will work for you.

    2. Downloaded the Toshiba Bluetooth Monitor for XP. (This version needs to be 2.0 or later.) Get it (3.0) here: http://www.csd.toshiba.com/cgi-bin/t...sp?soid=841048.

    3. Turn off and close Bluetooth entirely.

    4. Uninstall the Toshiba BT Stack via the uninstall utility in Control Panel.

    5. Reboot.

    6. Install the BT monitor listed above (which has instructions in installer and the text file it gives you.

    7. Reboot.

    8. Install Windows XP service pack 3. If you have the service pack on disk that's cool. I got it via Microsoft over the web. This takes some time.

    9. Reboot.

    10. Turn on bluetooth via the switch (My laptop has a wireless switch that can be set to wifi or bluetooth. mine is set to bluetooth and requires "Fn + F2" to throw. Windows searched high and low for my drivers and installed the ones for the microsoft bluetooth stack....

    -----------------------

    Pair the laptop and the device...
    Now follow the standard setup through desktop manager.....

    Works great. Awesome. Headache.

    You need to have the Microsoft Bluetooth stack running. Any other (WidComm, Toshiba etc..) Will not let you sync. I don't know the reason why, but that's the way it is.

    By the way, from what I understand, this has nothing to do with Verizon. I have been a Verizon customer since before the Bell Atlantic Mobile merge and realize the shortcomings as to equipment, but their CS is second to none. (Just my opinion. I know I'll get blasted for this one....)

    No. I love Verizon. I just emphasized that I am on VZW to get more focused help.

    As for the Microsoft Bluetooth stack.... searching.

    Ugh. I guess I'm running Toshiba bluetooth. Now I have to figure out how to use the Microsoft Bluetooth stack with my internal BT for the laptop.

    Normally I'm not this out of the loop when it comes to these things, but...

    The steps that every source seems to say have to be taken to get Bluetooth Toshiba Stack off my Dell XPS laptop and place the Microsoft Bluetooth Stack on it are ridiculous. I'll probably have to try one and just restore my computer if it goes wrong. Sigh.

    Cancel that. I got it setup up, aka fixed. So easy now. But still it was a hassle. I guess it is the first time you do something you do not feel sure about.

    This is not true you can use the toshiba stack to sync. I have the latitude D620 with the Dell 350 bluetooth and it works like a charm. Not intent to harm blakklite just want the people who need to know that it will work. If you can't get it to work there is a setting wrong somewhere.

    heres what I have,

    8330 - sprint
    4.5
    windows vista
    toshiba laptop
    toshiba external bt adapter

    it took me hours to do this, but i had to keep playing with the toshiba drivers and the windows drivers to get it to work.

    i dont know how it works with xp, but i know in vista if it does not give you the bt option under the ctrl panel (hardware and sound) then its not gonna work, and you have to pair it there before you get the option to do it with DM
