From what I can gather per the above posts, I believe my issue in attempting to connect my Blackberry Pearl 8100 is similar to the above. My device has paired successfully with my PC using XP's BT wizard as suggested in KB04132, however when I try to configure BT to add the Device using the BB DesktopManager software, I get a message "Verify that the Bluetooth enabled device is configured with the BlackBerry Desktop software" My device is not displayed in this window. I then found the following script in the KB04132 solution Additional Info
Note: If the BlackBerry smartphone has an IT Policy that has removed the desktop connectivity service (located in Bluetooth Options), the BlackBerry smartphone will be able to pair, but will not be located by the BlackBerry Desktop Manager. http://www.blackberry.com/btsc/search.do?cmd=displ
I have checked my organisations IT policy with our administrator, where he has informed me that our IT Policiesare set as follows:
Bluettooth Policy Group ->
Disable Handsfree Profile
Disable Serial Port Profile
Disable Discoverable Mode
Allow Outgoing Calls "In the absence of this rule a default value of FALSE will be used.
Am I correct to assume that the above settings on our BES server is the reason why I cannot connect my device via Bluetooth to my PC, or should I be looking at other troubleshooting aspects.
Hope you can help, and thank you in advance for your input.
