ActiveSync via Bluetooth problem

I tried searching for this topic; I apologize if it’s been answered, which I’m sure it has. I cannot get my 6300 to sync over BT. When I use the cradle or travel charger, it’s fine. I try pairing the two from the BT manager, and it establishes a connection with the PC, and even has the icon on the 6300, but it seems to only have a “serial port” connection and not an active sync connection. It seems like I had the same problem with my 4155 when I first got it a year ago, and it just started working after much trial and error. Anyone have any ideas?

When pairing the device, go through the manager, then go to “new”, then add Active Sync paring that way. Should work fine.

More than likely, the COM port is outside the range that ActiveSync will use. The following guide addresses both that issue and also offers a comprehensive guide. IF you have everything installed and set up jump to the “To re-assign the COM port” section in the middle.
REF: > Raj is one of the top ActiveSync people anywhere. In addition, the older Widcomm/Broadcomm software is notorious for port assignment issues. IF you are running XP SP2 then I would recommend using the built-in stack and ditch the extra software; however, unless you have a Bluetooth certified device I’d keep what you have. REF:

* XP SP2 (GeekZone example) –

* XP SP2 (certified devices) –

Good Luck – Let me Know!
