I bought and installed a bluetooth device. IVT Corp. Bluesoleil. I installed the software first, followed the instructions, restarted the pc and plugged in the BT device when instructed. It works. I can send files to and from the phone to the PC and vice versa.
Then I downloaded the latest version of PC Suite from the Nokia website - specifically choosing the version for the Nokia 7610. Again I followed instructions carefully installing, then re-starting pc. Then after waiting for everything to settle down, I go to the "Get connected" icon of PC Suite, selecting the IVT Bluesoleil Bluetooth connection and let it search for the phone. It finds the phone. - so far, so good. BUT....... when I click on the phone and select "Next" it immediately gives me the message "Cannot authenticate the phone
I have spent a week trying everything. Multiple un-installs, and re-installs. I have tried installing PC Suite and Bluetooth in a different order. I have tried installing from the supplied disks (older software versions), I have downloaded and installed the latest versions from IVT and Nokia websites.
I always re-start the pc and the phone, but always I get to the same point: PC Suite, and the bluetooth device both find the phone OK, but PC Suite won't allow me to run their file transfer software of synchronise or anything else until a phone is validly selected. But I always get the same message when selecting the Nokia 7610 Cannot authenticate the phone.
. Incidentally I get the same message if trying to connect to a 6600, but this may be normal as the 6600 should have a different version of PC Suite..
Here is my configuation:
Microsoft Windows XP
Service Pack 2
IVT Bluetooth stack
Microsoft Bluetooth stack
Bluesoleil (c) IVT Corporation
Bluesoleil 18.104.22.168 Release 050606
Stack Version 05.04.05.20050408
Nokia PV Suite 6.70.22
Norton AntiVirus 2005
Microsoft AntiSpayware Beta1 vesrion 1.0.701
Surely Nokia have tested PC Suite with the Nokia 7610 before releasing it? I went down to the mobile phone shop and they told me everyone has problems with PC Suite and the Nokia phone, and I should forget about trying to fix it, as it can not be done. I can't believe that.
Anyone got any ideas? Thanks in advance.....
