Question Synching With Bluetooth

Does anyone know if this is possible?

I have a Tecom BT3030 USB adapter but although it says it's paired, I don't seem to be able to connect it as a COM port? I'd love to be able to sync with Outlook, I don't mind what software I would need to do this, but Nokia sweet wont detect my phone on the com port that the BT manager says it is connected with...

Any ideas/advice?

(The BT manager is the one that came with the dongle, I think v1.3.5)

Yeah when pc suite connects it will say its connected,are com ports 4 and 5 set up for Bt?
The settings on your bluetooth program will tell you which ports are set up.
Are you using a usb extension lead/hub?

In 'My BT Places' it is set to use COM4 to connect, but when I double click the icon it says the BT com port 0 will be used to connect... Then I get an error that the connection failed and the remote device closed the connection....

Just for the record, I can send a file from my phone to the PC so the dongle definitly works....

**EDIT**

I don't know how it's happened....or what I did....but the phone is now connected on COM5 :?

Oh well....it seems to be working now, however I did it....

**EDIT2**

Hmm, if I try to backup the phone, it cuts the connection haf way through :(

I can sync my tasks and calender though, which is the main thing I guess. Anyone know how to make my PC do this on boot up? Like active sync does with my iPaq? Now that would be cool....

**EDIT3**

AAAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh.......

Can't get it to connect again now

Bt is very unreliable at startup imo,the best way i have found when having problems is to go to bluetooth places and view devices in range then right click and connect nokia 6600,works everytime 1st time now, for me anyway.

Just ignore the prompt and dont click 'OK' just close the window and wait a couple secs.
