Dongla or Dongle? :laugh

It would be easier to use the cables and software that came with the phones to transfer stuff (pictures / music etc). I've always found Bluetooth hit and miss sometimes it works, sometimes it wont. Phone to phone I use IR if I can.

(Using my phone cable makes it really simple to synchronise contacts in outlook and on the phone. )

I've got a Sony Ericsson.

But it IR's to the Nokia's fine. :)

Maybe all are not hit and miss, but it's always been hit and miss for me. Even with the same phones, sometimes it'll connct, sometimes it wont. Sometimes they'll connect to each other, sometimes not. The Ex just bought a new phone, it will not bluetooth with her BMW, it's an LG, her old LG was fine with the car. It's (BT) always seemed weird to me.

My SE is an MP3 player and will play a few formats and they can be used for ring tones, but it will only take a 128mb stick (i.e. Death march for any work related numbers :laugh but for the 1/2 dozen that call me regularly I know who it is before I look at it.) it vibrates, but you can't feel it when it's under the trunk on the bike.

had the same prob with mine. It seems if your running xp with service pack2 windows will use its own driver and not the one on your disc. try this page....it is for a widcomm(which is what i have) but should work for all others.
