    Question Pairing 8110 to XP SP2 using Bluesoleil and Dongle


    I have searched for hours for information on getting my 8110 Pearl connected to my PC using a BT dongle. At one point I was able to link the 2 items together, but could not use the DM's sync feature to sync my Outlook '07 address book and calaendar. (I kept getting an error message about no connector available, I think.)

    I bought a second dongle (it states it is BT v 1.2 compliant. the first was v 1.1. I was hoping this made a difference.) I installed the dongle, but could not find XP SP2 native bluetooth in the control panel, so I loaded the included software -which is BlueSoleil. The best I was able to acheive was getting my BB to open up a VoIP window in the BlueSoeil program. (Something I'm not interested ingoing.) I can't connect to my bb using the DM even though the Bluesoleil program has linked my PC and BB.

    I would appreciate someone who has connected their 8110 via a USB Bluetooth dongle to tell me how they acheived their connection. If I need a different dongle, that is fine. My only caveat is that I must be able to sync my 8110 Outlook., or at least be able to trasfer files using the Media Manager.)

    Thanks in advance!

    Hey troutusa, I've connected my BB 8100 to my PC using a bluetooth dongle, but NEVER to sync, it was mainly to transfer ringtones/music/pics and, honestly I wouldn't be very much help, but the dongle I used was VERY easy to use and it works VERY WELL!!!
