    Hi

    I'm using a SE K700i and trying to connect through Bluetooth. Using the
    software that came with my USB dongle I can connect to the phone fine,
    sending and receiving. Trouble is the software is a bit crap so I'm trying
    to use some decent manager software, such as MobileEdit. But when using
    other software, even the official software from Sony Ericsson I cannot
    connect my mobile.

    What software do you guys use?

    Thanks

    movement?

    You know what - I get exactly the same problem. The Sony stuff doesnt
    work, but the third party stuff does! Using XPs bluetooth
    implementation, it can see the phone and stuff, but sonys software
    doesnt think the K700 is connected. Ive given up to be honest, I can
    transfer media, other than the phonebook, which was initally a right
    pain, as I have loads of contacts in CSV format. I also got phone
    tools from a motorola phone, but it doesnt like the sony (maybe no
    suprise - incompatible?)

    Look into your BT software, and find out which COM-port is used for
    communicating with the phone. Enable this COM-port in Mobile Phone
    Monitor in Control Panel.

    Thats great. The sony software works! Thanks.

    The lousy single piece of paper that came with the bluetooth dongle
    didnt mention any of this! Just how do they expect people to know such
    things!

    It's more of a Sony Ericsson problem than a Bluetooth stack problem.

    I had that problem initially with my Belkin dongle. When I matched just the
    *Client* port from the BT stack to SE's s/w, reserved it then disabled the
    rest, it worked fine.

    The Sony Ericsson software design is pretty lame. I've tossed both the
    Bluetooth stack that came with my Belkin dongle and the Sony Ericsson
    software. Instead I use the Bluetooth stack in Windows XP SP2 (which is much
    more tight and robust) and floAt's Mobile Agent (which is much smarter at
    finding the phone than Sony Ericsson, and much more capable to boot). The
    only disappointment with that approach is that the Microsoft Bluetooth stack
    doesn't support the audio/headset profile, so I can't use a Bluetooth headset
    with my computer, but I think that's a small price to pay for rock solid and
    trouble free operation.
