    I'm currently using a Belkin/Widcomm USB dongle which sometimes actually
    syncs my T39 & T610 with Outlook via XTNDConnect & SE's PM s/w. Does
    anyone know if there are any differences in drivers & s/w between
    various Widcomm based dongles or if any alternatives are available?

    Re: Any non-Widcomm based BT dongles?

    I use the Belkin F8T001 version 1 dongle. This dongle comes with older
    Widcomm drivers. There were instructions floating around a while back on how
    to get the Widcomm 1.4.x.x drivers to work with this device. It seems that
    the newer drivers are a bit more stable. Depending on the vendor there are
    other versions of Widcomm in use with other dongles.

    Some of the problems you are experiencing are more application SW related,
    IMHO. The Sony Ericsson software is not the most robust stuff I have ever
    seen. You may want to consider looking at the Float MA package which is
    available at http://sourceforge.net/projects/fma I have had good luck with
    this package and it seems to do a good job of synching and such.

    If I want to check for email or write a letter, I open the appropriate
    app & click a few buttons & it's done. Nearly anything to do with phones
    & the phase of the moon suddenly comes into play.

    The SE Phone Monitor program is probably the weakest link in the chain
    even with my SE serial cable but the Widcomm s/w will refuse to play
    sometimes. What pisses me off the most is the loss of being able to
    power down my PC - it now reboots instead under XP. Even tried disabling
    the BT LAN & exiting the SE & BT s/w 1st - no difference.

    The advantage that XTNDConnect has over the BT Sync app is filtering &
    the option to choose the folder - I have one for my phone apart from my
    main Contacts folder.

    I don't know if the full version of XTNDC still needs the SE PM app
    (more reliable if not?). It will be interesting to see if MS include a
    BT stack in their replacement for XP.

    If 3G, Edge, BT & imaging is going to take off - the connection to
    computers needs to far more seamless & reliable.
