[access-uk] Re: Linking my Mobile Phone to my Computer via Bluetooth

Hi Theresa,

Sorry for the delay in getting back, only my Pc has only just now been
returned from Repair.

I'm afraid to say I'm a little stumped on what to suggest from here. As said
in the previous message, checking all the Virtual Ports in Properties
established a stable connection between PC Suite and my old 6600. Do you
have an "mRouter" Icon in your System tray? Right clicking this should
hopefully display a "Properties" option.

Apologies for sounding so vague, only it's a long time since I've used this
particular family of PC Suite. The latest version for newer phones (6.6)
don't seem to have all these little oddities for some reason. Let me know
how you get on.

Cheers,

Mark

Hi Mark

I've taken a few days to reply to your message because as soon as I posted
my original question my e-mail went down for the next few days so I've had
to go on to the Freelists website and find any follow-up messages.

I'm running PC Suite 1.0.0.  From reading the Readme file in PC Suite, there
is a section on known issues.  It mentions a TDK Bluetooth adaptor, which
isn't what I've got, but a couple of the error messages that are talked
about are the same.  These are:

1. "The Bluetooth serial port connection failed: The remote device closed
the connection".  It says that this error message can be ignored as the
connection between the phone and the PC is established. If I look at the
status of the connection through "My Bluetooth Places", "My Device", and
"Nokia 6600 Serial Port",, what is actually happening is the connection is
established and has a good signal, but then the signal either drops to being
so weak that it can't be seen on the status bar or it's completely dropped -
I don't know - I think it's the latter.

2. "The Bluetooth serial port COM0 is now configured to connect the device
<device name>. The Application that will use this connection must be
configured to use COM0".  It says this can be ignored.

so, I have no idea where to go from here.

Hi All

A few days ago I went to buy a cable to link my Nokia 6600 to my computer
and was told the shop didn't have a cable but a Bluetooth dongle would do
exactly the same job.  However, having installed the software on my
computer, connected the Bluetooth dongle and tried to connect using the
serial port connection through Quick Connect in the system tray:- A
connection is made and I am prompted to accept it on the phone. I then get a
dialog that says (Error connecting Bluetooth Serial Port connection with
device Nokia 6600 and I have to choose OK. I then get an authorisation
message up on my computer and the only thing I can do is click on it as it
comes up in a balloon on the taskbar.  I do that.

If I do the same thing through My Blootooth Places I am told that "The
Blootooth Serial Port connection failed.  The connection could not be
completed"  I have also had another message saying that the connection
failed because the phone terminated the connection.

If I try connecting to the computer from the phone, I'm told that the
computer does not support handheld devices, or something like that.

I've also seen a message in the Serial Port properties on the computer that
says that the device needs to be configured to use the same COM port that
the Serial Port is on - but I don't know how I know what my phone is
configured for.

Having spoken to a friend about this, she said that she had tried a couple
of Bluetooth dongles that worked once and never again, and similarly a cable
that was actually supplied with her phone.  She bought another Bluetooth
dongle from PC World which has worked perfectly, although she doesn't know
what she did differently and certainly couldn't do it again!!!

Any ideas gratefully received!!!
