Ipaq 5555 and Motorola V710

I am getting a Moto V710 and would like to know if it’s Bluetooth is going to work with the Bluetooth of my Ipaq 5555? Thanks. Frank Fowlkes

I can’t speak for the 5555, but with other ipaqs, it depends what you mean by “work” You can use the v710 as a modem (DUN profile) with an ipaq. You can use the v710 with a bt headset.

You CANNOT transfer files. OBEX has been disabled on that phone.

Same as above, you CANNOT transfer files using the Moto V710 to the Ipaq, however, you can use the V710 as a modem for the Ipaq through BT.

My experience is with an h5555 and a SonyEricsson T616. Bluetooth works perfect when transferring data back and forth. The implementation is not very well thought out (instead of being able to copy a whole directory of contacts to the phone, I have to hit yes to every contact being updated). Other than that, it works fine.

I do NOT have any kind of GPRS/Data service with my provider, but I suspect that they also have severed the connection between GPRS and the BlueTooth connection (thus preventing me from using my Cell as a modem to the GPRS network so I can browse from my laptop or iPAQ).

There’s actually a lawsuit against Verizon by customers that own the Moto V710. They owners claim that Verizon purposely disabled the OBEX protocol that enables data transfer (pictures, contact lists, etc..) between the phone and another BT device.
