Common Problems

I have got BT working after much trial an error. Some common problems are:
- On the phone/device you must set it to be discoverable
- Use must use the same passkey on the device and your computer
- If your using 3rd party software/drivers, you may be prompted to "Authorize/Allow" the device to always connect when in range.
- If you change the device ID on your phone/device you will need to create a new partnership.
- If you change your computer name (System. Advanced settings, computername) you will need to change the partnership name for your comp. Or create a new partership.

Hope some of that helps. BT partnerships are fickle. Specialy when usind 3rd party software (some have advanced settings to allow file transfers etc.)
