Windows 7: Activating Bluetooth

Activating Bluetooth

I have added a Bluetooth adapter so I can sync my phone to the desktop. So far each time I try to hotsync with the phone, the phone does not connect.

Is there a script that I can download that activates the Bluetooth adapter?

Did the bluetooth adapter install correctly and is recognized by windows? Did it install drivers?

Start> In search type devices and press enter> In upper left click on Add A device.

Have a look here if it doesn't install drivers.

Let us know. A Guy

Just so you know, sometimes the phones will not sync because the phone provider disables that feature in their builds.

Verizon is famous for this with their provided phones. They want you to pay them to do bluetooth syncing, so they disable it by default and you have to purchase their enhanced options in order to to the sync.

I know in the case of Motorola phones, you had to resort to third party software in order to do any syncing.
