    Is there an alternative to XTNDCONNECT when linking a T610 to a PC with
    bluetooth. While the Belkin bluetooth file transfer works effortlessly,
    XTNDCONNECT sometimes works and sometimes doesn't. I have created the
    virtual comm port OK as needed, but I cannot get XTNDCONNECT to work
    consistently. It sometimes does and sometimes doesn't. Better software must
    be out there for syncing contacts & appointments b/w Outlook and the T610
    using bluetooth?

    Re: Xtnd Connect and T610

    XtndConnect is certainly not the most robust sw I have ever used. I find
    that by manually making the serial connection before running Xtnd connect I
    get better results. I have heard of other programs but I haven't used any of
    them.

    You can synchronise using the built in Bluetooth OBEX. Have a look in our
    Bluetooth Guides for some information.

    It's not as flexible as XTNDConnect, because there's no filter, all records
    are synchronised - but this was an issue with older mobile phones with
    limited memory (like the T39m).

    Thanks Mauricio, I'll take a look -- although I have more than 500 contacts
    in Outlook and filtering therefore is a big advantage for me. I think the
    first software company that offers a decent, reliable sync. option with
    filtering for bluetooth is on a winner. If anyone knows of other
    alternatives, please let me know. Thank you.

    There is phone synch software called Data Pilot but it doesn't appear that
    they support Bluetooth nor the SE 610 at this time. I was amazed when I
    actually did a search at how little there is for synching phones to PCs.

    By the way you have a great site but I couldn't access the second set of
    instructions about syncing w/o xtndconnect. I still hope either they
    deliver a better product or there is some alternative syncing/filtering
    software. Regards Chris Griffith.

    I have another idea. I can link my PC and Toshiba e570 PDA by USB or wifi
    and use active sync then update the contacts in my Ericsson T610 phone via
    the PDA rather than directly from the PC to the PDA using XtndConnect.
    Doesd anyone know whether:
    (a) ActiveSync works with Wifi, and (2)
    (b) I am using an excellent product SmartGSM in my PDA which supports both
    bluetooth and wifi cards. I am hoping SmartGSM can use blueooth as easily
    as it does Infrared. Has anyone tried this?

    Thanks...

    You mean this one: http://www.geekzone.co.nz/content.asp?contentid=974. It's
    working fine (or so it seems as of Sunday PM NZ Time).

    Yes, you can ActiveSync over wi-fi

    The problem appears to be that after I use xtndconnect (successfully) the
    T610 is left with bluetooth still busy. I cant turn it off w/o turning the
    phone off. If I switch the phone off and on, turn blue tooth off then on,
    then I can usually sync again .. w/o redefining the blue tooth serial port.

    Could it be a problem with the phone, not the XTNDConnect software, then? I
    had a T610 for review and it turned to be a problem - Bluetooth didn't work
    well at all.

    Maybe, but I find the T610 works beautifully in bluetooth mode with the
    Belkin software -- ie doing uploads and downloads. My only problem is
    XTNDConnect. I think it must be an initialisation/closing off error.
