If it'* a motorola phone, you'll want to have Mobile Phone Tools software. I've been using bluetooth between my iPaq, Laptop, and Phones for about a year now.

No time to banter. Off to lunch!

Talk more later.

Okay, well voiding my warranty in anyway is out of the question. This phone is a refurbished phone which is something I'd normally not do but the thing that swung me to getting the phone is that I get a year warranty in case the phone isn't a good one. I have what would fall into the "other" category of service providers, it'* non GSM and I think its probably much like Verizon. I'll look into the resources, see what I can find. And hey, Wren! What is this software you speak of? Download thing or a go out and buy it thing?

I know bluetooth is cool to download pics at walmart without hooking up to anything. Technology these days is something else. My son has the headset also and can leave his phone in one place and walk all over the house and talk.

You need to enable the OBEX profile on the phone.

It ain't "legal" - I got Verizon, I've read how to do it (there'* a hint in my last post). It violates your warranty and terms of service. If they can prove you've modified your phone, they can get ya for it.
outsiders can't read post in the lounge

But, that doesn't mean we want to "promote that behaviour". It'* not a quick "just do this" operation, there are other forums dedicated to this stuff, and some things are better off just not broadcast. y'know????
