I'm having a lot of problems trying to get a bluetooth headset to work with my o2 XDA ii PDA.
The PDA detects all sorts of Bluetooth devices, including many types of headset I've tried in the shop. The headsets have all been charged & claim to be universally compatible. Yet when I dial out with the phone or take incoming calls, no sound of voice or dial tone or anything comes through the headset.
Shop people have suggested the Operating System needs to be updated, but through my research that can't be done on this model. Also I think its a bit odd that a 3-4 year old PDA should already be incompatible with every bluetooth headset I can get my hands on.
I'd appreciate your help - I'm quite sick of putting this big phone to my ear and want to use the brand new headset I've brought!
Any tips welcome.

The usual way of doing this is:
1. Install ActiveSync on your PC. ActiveSync is usually shipped with PDAs, but it can also be downloaded from Microsoft.
2. Connect your PDA to your PC. There are several ways of doing this (cable, bluetooth, IrDa).
3. Run the game installer on your PC.
If you lost your driver.. the best solution is to download the "ActivSync" file from Microsoft. It is the better driver for O2 XDA II mini! Just try to type "ActivSync for O2 XDA II mini in Microsoft" in search address tab and then try to open the list website result it gave you till you reach the right file from microsft. Enjoy downloading.
Hi there. I have the same problem with my O2 XDA IIi. But I found that inserting the power adaptor in and out brings back the volume and all is fine for a few hours. The problem could be a power socket or the audio jack. Either one could be broken and may need replacement. Good luck.
I has the same situation like you but opposite event. My O2 XDA II or Siemens SX66 or even calls Qtek 9090 is another version with your O2 has sometime Bluetooth keeps turning on. I turn it off for few seconds, it is on again. I tried to solve th eproblem by get ito the setting area to turn it off and reset my PDA. My PDA has the area calls Wireless Manager. I click on all three function including phone, wi-fi, bluetooth and go out of wireless manager area and get into connection and click on Bluetooth and turn it on or off then only Bluetooth get effected. I don't know why but that is I found out my own way. Just play around these features by testing it the way I mentioned above. i hope this help. This feature is not stable in these type of models. You are not the only one. ALSO, TRY TO GET IT ON TO CONNECT WITH OTHER BLUETOOTH DEVICES TO HOW IT IS REACTED. Good Luck
Make sure the names of the phones are different if they are the same make, as the bluetooth may see only one phone and see if there is a 'find me' or 'show phone' or similair on your phone.
See if your new phone can scan for new devices and see your old phone or pc.
The other thing to check is see if the bluetooth works int when you insert your sim card from your previous phone, as the function may not be activated.
