Default Bluetooth/PDA question

Hey guys,

I have a Palm Tungsten E2, with bluetooth. I was messing around in class today and realised I can "see" other people'* laptops. I treid to connect, but it would always time out. I assume because they have to enable something on their end.

Anyways, is there anyways to get around this? To connect to their comp? I'm willing to use "shifty means." Maybe some software I can d/l? Help me out H4X0Rz! :P

Not unless they have their laptops set to auto-connect. Default on this setting is NO.

I use bluetooth extensively on my laptop, PDA, and RAZR phone. I have yet to find an unsecured bluetooth connection other than bluetooth printers at work.

Hey Bill, are you connecting your RAZR to your laptop??

I was just playing around with my new RAZR to see if they could see each other but no luck.

Yup. I've sent pics via bluetooth to the laptop, PDA, and Kim'* phone.

I use a USB cable for synching the calendar and contacts, and backing the phone up.

It depends on who your carrier is. If you're with Verizon, just go buy the cable....

They turn off all the cool toys.

I just use the cable for my digital camera since it is the same USB cable. As for the carrier, I am with Rogers. They do not turn it off, since they sell a few different kinds of bluetooth headsets to use with the phone.

Probably my laptop then.

Double check. I can use Bluetooth headsets and stuff with my Verizon phone, but there'* little to no computer linking support.
