The use of Bluetooth often raises many issues. This is especially true for applications line ActiveSync and Nokia Phone Suite that use virtual Com ports, as well as for devices like headsets when used in combination with both a phone and a PC. I spent several days stumbling with this problem, finding out how things worked behind the screens and finding ways to diagnose and resolve the issues. The documents listed on this page document the results of these efforts.
