Hello...i am using sony ericsson k550 i had a trouble in that i cant send any files through bluetooth my bluetooth is not working pls any one tell how to solve this prob


Make sure your phone and the other Bluetooth device are charged, switched on and within range of each other. Make sure Bluetooth wireless technology is turned on, and that the devices are set to be visible for other Bluetooth devices. Check that the two devices are paired, and have found each other. If there are still problems, you'll have to reset the connection and pair the two devices again.

In some Bluetooth installations, you must activate a COM port manually in your computer. This is done differently for different brands and models of Bluetooth devices. Please see the manufacturer's product documentation.

If a COM port is not activated

1. In many cases, you can right-click on your phone icon in the window where all found Bluetooth devices are shown, and select a 'COM port activation' item in the menu. Make a note of the COM port number of the activated port.
2. Open Sony Ericsson PC Suite and click Tools/Phone Monitor Options.../Com Ports. Enable the COM port you activated in step 1.
3. Keep the Bluetooth wireless technology turned on in your phone, restart the computer and try to connect again.

Text memory full states on notification cant receive texts but i have no messages saved so i st .arted clearing out stuff tha had a storage i still have full memory. HELP PLEASE


Dear Sir\Madam,
I had a similar problem, and I was able to solve the problem by simply following the below steps. 1. If probably your phone has a bluetooth device and you have been receiving gallery files(i.e. Photos, Musics or Videos) via bluetooth, note that this files are stored too on your phone memory not the memory cards and this may consume space on the phone memory. So, try and move those files that you received via bluetooth in your received folder on your phone memory to the location of your memory card. This may probably free the space on your phone. 2. if you have been receiving bluetooth files as a message into your phone depending on the type of phone you are using, simply save them into your memory card by selecting the memory card path and delete them after saving so as to free space on the phone memory. Then try to delete as well some unwanted or junk messages from your phone in have more space on your phone memory.
Hope the information actually help. Regards

I cant figure out how to connect my jornada to my pc.. can you help?


Hi,

Are you connecting from dock to USB on computer, or serial to USB via a USB-serial adapter? UBS-serial adapters are notorious for not recognizing attached serial hardware. What kind of errors are the Jornada and the computer throwing? Can you give any specific error numbers?

If you are connecting using the serial cable to a serial port on your computer you need to make sure that the Jornada is trying to connect to the correct COM port (and that the computer is allowing connections through the correct COM port). Do this by:
1. Open Device Manager (R-Click on My Computer - Properties - Hardware - Device Manager)
2. Expand the "Ports (COM)" plus sign
3. Beside each COM port's name it will say (COM#) - the # tells you which port the COM is
4. Go into ActiveSync and open Connection Settings (in the File menu in ActiveSync 4.5 - the latest)
5. Make sure all the check boxes are checked and that the correct number COM port is selected in the drop down menu under "Allow connections to one of the following:"
6. Connect your Jornada via the serial cable, make sure the Jornada is on and connected to power cable (I have had more success with the power on - may or may not affect your problem)
7. Click the "Connect..." button in ActiveSync. The Jornada should be detected.

If your computer has an infrared port you could try that, I have had a lot of success with infrared connections with my Jornada. Also, try installing ActiveSync on another computer that has a serial port and try connecting the Jornada to that computer. It may be a problem with your computer.

An older version of ActiveSync should not make a difference. The facilities are the same, just slightly rearranged.



Please post your feedback and Vote if the problem resolved as per your satisfaction.

  1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, and then double-click Bluetooth Devices.
  2. Click the device that you want to change, and then click Properties.
  3. Do any of the following:
    • To change the name of the device, click the General tab, type a new name, and then click OK.
    • To enable a service, click the Services tab, select the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To disable a service, click the Services tab, clear the check box next to the service, and then click OK.
    • To make your computer discoverable to Bluetooth enabled devices, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to find this computer check box.
    • To make Bluetooth enabled devices discoverable to your computer, in the Bluetooth Devices dialog box, click the Options tab, and then select the Allow Bluetooth devices to connect to this computer check box.

    Warning
    • To help protect your computer, only make your computer discoverable when you want a Bluetooth enabled device to find your computer.

Some computer programs require a COM port (also called a serial port) to communicate with a Bluetooth enabled device. For example:
  • A program that synchronizes contacts with a mobile phone
  • A program that extracts Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates from a GPS receiver
When you use the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard to add a Bluetooth enabled device to your computer, you create an incoming COM port, which permits your device to connect to a program on your computer, and an outgoing COM port, which permits a program on your computer to connect to your device. Usually, you only need to use one of these COM ports.
To decide which COM port to use, you can check the information that came with the program or your Bluetooth enabled device, or go to the manufacturer’s website.
If you're still not sure which COM port to use, try each COM port, one at a time, and use the one that successfully allows the program and your device to communicate.

I thought I had Bluetooth in my computer...


Yes, you can use bluetooth mobile devices. COM 3 os the port that the bluetooth uses to connect to a device. You can think of it like a wireless modem. You can also configure other COM ports for communication with bluetooth devices using the connection wizard. I would suggest not to do this unless you know what you doing. From my experiences with bluetooth devices they can b a little touchy, and you have to careful you don't want to pick a port that another program is already using. ConfigFree is capable of configuring this bluetooth connection, but there are also other programs out there that you can use as well.
