    Just got a Motorola v551 so that I could pair it up with my Palm
    Tungsten T3 and Dell D600 laptop (with built-in Bluetooth - Dell
    TrueMobile 300 Bluetooth Internal card, running on Windows 2000). I
    also have a Blackberry that is Bluetooth.

    My laptop and Palm can detect each other as well as the Blackberry, yet
    neither of the three can detect my v551. I activated the Bluetooth by
    going to the Bluetooth menu, clicking on SETUP, turning the Power ON
    and also clicking on "find me". Still, nothing.

    Any ideas? Is my phone defective? Just got it yesterday...

    Thanks!!!

    It sounds like the devices are looking for the file transfer bluetooth
    profile. I don't think that the v551 broadcasts that profile, only the
    handsfree or headset profile. See if you transmit from another
    bluetooth device if your v551 can detect them. Also, try changing the
    name of your bluetooth profile to something other than the default
    "Motorola Phone".

    My Palm T3 and PC with Belkin USB dongle were able to discover my V551 just
    fine. I don't think it's a profile issue.

    Perhaps the OP can let us know how he/she is searching for the phone from
    the Palm or PC? The Palm is a little tricky in that you created the pairing
    when you build the Bluetooth connection under Preferences. The PC should be
    straightforward, however, by just searching for nearby devices.
