    For the past few years, I have used a USB cable to transfer data to/from my LG cell phones. Simce my girlfriend is no longer faithful to LG, she recently purchased a Samsung ACH-990. So I got the idea in my head that instead of having to constantly buy new USB cables, I could use Bluetooth to transfer files and ringers to any Bluetooth equipped phone. So I recently purchased a Iomega Bluetooth USB adapter (GBU221). Here's the problem I'm having-I can't get BitPim to recognize either phone with Bluetooth. I got my 9800 to register twice, but only for about a minute each time. My bluetooth is set for COM3/COM4. All software is installed and updated. Recently upgraded my computer to Vista. Went into my Device Manager and updated all drivers successfully. I have been using BitPim for about 3 years now, but always with a USB cable. I was on tech support with Iogear for an hour and a half last night. I learned alot during that time and got my device working properly. Am I missing something in BitPim? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    Re: 9800, BitPim and Bluetooth

    I am having the same problems. Except mine is on a LG VX5400. I am also trying to use bitpim over a blue tooth com port. I try to connect the com port that was installed from the mobile phone but it doesn't stay connected for long and I can manage to get songs and stuff from the phone but I can't transfer anything to it. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Are you putting a single phone in discovery mode, and not trying to do both at the same time? I was having some strange issues when I had one phone connected, then tried to connect another at the same time.

    Bluetooth isn't reliable for transferring a large data. I would get another phone that has an SD card and transfer songs to that.
