    I'm having a host of problems getting a bluetooth connection on my t40p
    with native bluetooth support

    I can pair no problems, and when I try to modem out, the sony shows a two-
    way connection, but the syncing program and the bluetooth places don't
    recognize the connection. Any suggestions??

    Thanks
    Scott

    I recently called Sony-Ericsson Support (UK) and was surprised at the
    response.

    Basically, it seems as though the trick(s) are:

    Under phone monitor (COM Ports), enable ports COM4 and COM5.

    Under the Wireless pairing, you should see Services, ensure that "Dialup
    Networking" is ticked.

    That should enable a "Bluetooth Modem" to be detected and used.

    This will then reside on a different COM port to the "Serial Service" used
    by the normal Bluetooth connection (including synchronization).

    After farting around for two days, I just got most of the way there. It
    seems that IBM had a driver update for the T40p that I just couldn't get
    installed correctly. I finally got that installed right, and now things
    seem much better. I can actually connect to and browse the device.

    Still can't modem out, but I think thats because I need to activate CSD
    to be able to dial up my non-cingular ISD. Is this right??
    The link gets established, and the phone says its calling the number,
    and then things conk out.
