Re: bluetooth/computer sync help

On a Mac, just go to Sync Services. It'll do everything automatically.

On a PC, I think you probably need to install some software...

Re: bluetooth/computer sync help

shit, i would have to be on a pc

uhm.. if i have my wireless card built into my computer (laptop, card built in by toshiba from factory for wireless internet) is that the same card/software i need to sync with my bluetooth?

cuz i can go to my bluetooth thing in my phone but i dont know how to get them on the same wavelength. like i can search for signals and stuff on my phone but i dont know what im searching for

when i go to bluetooth i get asked to "find me" "add audio device" or "setup" where setup just turns it on and off and has my phone end of the bluetooth settings...

im lost in this.

Re: bluetooth/computer sync help

wireless (as in 802.11g) does not equal bluetooth.

What model laptop is it?

Re: bluetooth/computer sync help

Which brings up the point as to why you wouldn't just use a wire to connect.
