Bluetooth adapter :black:

I know this subject has been raised in other forums but.....

Can anyone recommend a Bluetooth dongle or PC Card that works happily with the P800

Cheers

Bluetooth dongle I use

My P800 works perfectly with MSI PC2PC Bluetooth USB dongle. Much more better than the USB craddle I got with the phone - except for one thing - backup/restore, these you have to do via USB (even though I do not understand why...)

How much does one usually cost? You see, I'm going to this computer convention this weekend and they sells lotsa stuff cheaper so need something to compare.

Mitsumi

I got the Mitsumi USB dongle from the Brando site. It's also the one listed at p800er.com so I figured it would work with the p800. The two devices see each other and I an transfer files but the sync software does not recognose the phone. It may be a matter of experimenting with the settings but I thought USB devices would be plug and play!

Anyone else got a Mitsumi and care to make any suggestions?

Thanks.

They work fine, though you may want to update the drivers to those of a different manufacturer. Search through the 7650 forum for Tecom drivers.

I've got a EIO WaveLinker BT USB dongle (From dabs.com) and I am afraid it is not compatible with the SE P800. This has been confirmed by InnoVISION's technical support. :(

I strongly suspect that it makes naff all difference which one you use. The evidence of the last two posts suggests this. The manufacturer says Wavelinkers don't work but someone has managed to do it anyway.

Bluetooth is excellent when it works, but for various reasons it's pretty unreliable. I have everything setup and working with my Epox dongle, but every now and then it takes several connection attempts.

Which brand dongle you use is probably the least of your worries.

What I would like is a slightly better range. If the range were another 2m I would be able to browse the web through BT and my 1MB broadband connection. I imagine that a PCMCIA BT card with an external aerial (if such a thing exists) would probably be able to pick up the feeble signal coming from my phone, but I think I've spent enough money on hardware over the last few weeks to make me think twice about looking to spend any more.
