    I have a Nokia 6310i with firmware version 4.07.

    I am now intending to use the bluetooth features of this in conjunction with
    an Ipaq 5450 and also my laptop so that I can use as a wireless GPRS modem.
    I know there are some tweaks needed for GPRS.

    My main problem is that I CANNOT get any services connected to the phone.

    Firstly I am trying from Laptop with Bluetooth adapter. I can see the phone
    as a discoverable device and I can pair with it. However, when pairing, I
    type in passcode on phone and then get 'Device not avaialble' and although
    the phone shows as paired both on it and the PC I cannot connect to any
    services at all.

    Intending to buy a HP Ipaq 5450 I also tried this in the shop but get the
    same problem when connecting to Ipaq. Originally I though it must be
    Bluetooth USB adapter on laptop but now I think it could be phone.

    A friend of mine says his firmware version is 5.5 whilst mine is 4.07. Could
    this be a problem. I have not been able to try the combination with his
    phone and he is not using bluetooth so cannot confirm if his phone works in
    same setup.

    I have seen many articles on the net that state that Ipaq/6310i combination
    works fine.

    Any help and advice would be most welcome as I obviously don't want to spend
    500 on the ipaq until I knwo I can use with the phone.

    Thanks

    Mick

    1) Get latest software update.

    2) Report back if still having problems.

    Hi,
    Call 08700 555777 to find out the location of your nearest service
    centre and they will happily upgrade your firmware. Hope this helps. I am
    getting a Ipaq 5550 tomorrow and using it for the same as you, so I hope it
    all sets up OK! LOL

    Cheers,

    Martin

    Call club nokia careline, or check the nokia website (or you could always
    try one of the dodgy little shops that offer unlocking and stuff, they may
    be able to upgrade firmware), Carphone warehouse shops are usually nokia
    service centres. You *need* firmware version 5.50 for Bluetooth to work well
    with the 6310i and non-nokia authorised/made BT devices, I had limited
    success with v5.22 firmware but it was flaky at best. Expect to pay if the
    phone is out of warrantee though.

    Martin,

    My friend has V5.5 and I am heading over shortly to check his phone with my
    laptop and BT USB dongle. Hopefuly that will prove it. I will then hop over
    to Carphone Warehouse in Coventry to get my phone flashed if possible.
    Failing that I'll buy a newer one.

    Then will go get the 5550.

    I will let you know how I get on and be grateful if you do likewise. Also
    how I get on with WiFi connection to my existing combination of cabled and
    wireless network.

    What firmaware version have you got on your 6310i? Type *#0000# if you don't
    know how to find it.

    Regards

    Mick

    Re: Bluetooth problems with 6310i?

    Well, I tried my mates 6310i with V5.5 firmware and it works a dream with my
    laptop and Widcomm USB Blutooth Dongle. So must be the fact my phone only
    has V4.07 on it.

    Next step was to head over to Carphone Warehouse to see if I could get my
    phone updated. Yes, they can do it but I would have to leave it with them
    for 2 days!! What a crap service. What the hell are they like if you need
    something major doing to your phone?

    Anyway, can't do without the phone for two days so looks like I am going to
    scout for leads and software and perform this operation myself. Would
    appreciate any pointers in direction of correct leads, software and method.

    Thanks

    Mick

    Re: Bluetooth problems with 6310i?

    I had similar problems with my old 6310i which was v5.12 or something.

    I just got a new 6310i from voda for free (upgrade after a year) to replace
    the old one. The old one was looking shabby and had seen too much action.

    v5.50 on the new one and BT works fine now. Took them 2 days to deliver.
    Nokia content copier to do a straight swap of data.

    Couldn't be happier now.
