I have a T68i phone and, chuffed to bits with the bluetooth handsfree in my
car I decided to invest in some other BT stuff.
I bought a cheapBT dongle for my PC but after many attempts cannot get it to
sync reliably with the phone.Thinks I might buy a TDK one as they seem to be
better but haven't yet
Undeterred, I bought a Toshiba E740 pocket PC with BT. I have often checked
my e-mail with my old PPC (and palm before that) and it was a hassle lining
up the IR ports or plugging in a cable so I thought BT would be easier.
I though the PPC would detect the phone automatically once paired so it
could stay in my pocket but it appears, no.
Take phone out of pocket, set to discoverable
Turn BT on on PPC
Select "BT connection" or "BT Setup" on the PPC (they appear to do the same
Select "remote device"
Select "Device search"
Finds the phone
Select "service list"
Select "dail up networking"
Go to "Inbox"
I could have downloaded my mail already on the phone or via IR
Am I missing something or is this nonsense how it is supposed to be?
My handsfree finds the phone, connects, updates without any interference
My phone found a BT printer the other day and happily sent a business card
to it without any fuss.
Why is this so complicated?
