I have a NOKIA 6103 Mobile phone that I am trying to sync with my laptop. I already downloaded the nokia pc suite for interfacing, however, I can't get my laptop to recognize my phone. The phone is definitely bluetooth enabled, but I am having trouble figuring hout how to enable bluetooth services on my laptop. I did troubleshooting, and found that Windows XP SP 2 has bluetooth stacks, but the Help & Support center for HP had an article that leads me to believe I need an adapter and/or driver. How do I get this driver, and how do I activate bluetooth services on my laptop? I followed the directions and went to RUN and put in 'bthprops.cpl', but it didn't do anything. Please let me know if I need to purchase an adapter, if I need to and where I download a driver from, and anything else I am missing. Please help me.

Have you "enabled" the BlueTooth support on the Nokia?
Have you "enabled" the BlueTooth support on your laptop?
Do you get a prompt on the laptop (or the Nokia) requesting permission to connect to the BlueTooth network?
P.S. Look for a 'Fn Lock' key on the laptop. Press it to make all the other 'Fn' keys work.
to connect the mobile phone with the laptop you need a data cable ..and a driver to be installed so that the communication between the devices to be possible .. Usually the driver ( or software that contain it ) cames with the phone when you buy it ...so if you have it ..just insert the disk in the laptop ...and run the program ..and at one point will ask you to connect the mobile phone .. if you do not have the disk ..you need to download from the support site of the phone's manufacturer ...and install it after ..For well known brands...like Motorola...Nokia..Samsung ..there are available on the internet (google search ) programs called after case..connectivity suite ...or manager ..and they work for almost all phones in the brand that are capable to connect .. Another way to connect most phones these days with almost any laptop is via Bluetooth ..just open the bluetooth in the phone (make it available to be found) ..and after that open the bluetooth in the laptop and search for available devices..You will find the phone by its name or by the given name if you changed it ..After that just pair them and send files from one to the other .. Cause you did not specified the brand and model of the phone ...I can not provide any download link ...but I repeat ...If you search by the brand name ..and add the word support near it ..it usually connect you to the support site of the device manufacturer...and there you will find what you need ..driver or connectivity software ..
It is very simple provided that your system has a Bluetooth, and you have a very recent Nokia PC Suite, preferrably from version 126.96.36.199 and above. If you dont have, you can just go online and download a copy from either : http://europe.nokia.com/get-support-and-software/download-software/nokia-pc-suite or http://www.softpedia.com/get/Mobile-Phone-Tools/Nokia/Nokia-PC-Suite.shtml Just Install the Nokia PC Suite on your system, and make sure that your system 's bluetooth as well as your phone's bluetooth are switched on. Thereafter after installing the Nokia PC Suite, when you are prompted to select connection type, just select bluetooth and click next. The software will then try to automatically detect your phone and pair with it. It might ask you for a passcode, just use 1234, or any other number you like. Hope this helps you out. Goodluck!
Do you have the Jabra bluetooth part that goes into your computer? You have to go to your phone settings under bluetooth and make it sync up. Your phone will sync, not your headset. You are trying to sync the wrong thing.
If you can connect manually but it is not connecting automatically, then you have a settings problem either on the phone (less likely) or within the applet on your laptop controlling the bluetooth services. Try that first before reverting to the XP bluetooth software; usually when companies include custom bluetooth software, it is necessary.
If you cannot connect at all...
If you have tried to pair the laptop with the Nokia using the Toshiba applet and it never seems to work, and you've tried adjusting the settings on the phone and in the applet, and you know the bluetooth card is on and running normally on the laptop, I'd suggest uninstalling the Toshiba drivers and software through CONTROL PANEL and then rebooting and see if XP takes control of the bluetooth adapter. If not, try uninstalling the bluetooth hardware in DEVICE MANAGER and then rebooting, which will force XP to do a clean install (including bluetooth support software) and see if this gets you to normal operation under XP. If not, go to the SONY web site and, again, do a clean install of their bluetooth support software for your model, and try again from there. One of these combinations is pretty sure to work.
Make sure that if your laptop has a physical button on it to activate the bluetooth radio, that it is on, and that the device is enabled through device manager/network/connectivity. Any one of these being mis-set can (especially on Sonys) result in a confusing set of inexplicable failure conditions.
