Question Bluetooth not working! - 11-21-2012, 03:26 PM

Hiya, I'm trying to enable bluetooth between my dell mini and my phone. The bluetooth on both ends is switched on, but when I try searching for it on my phone it comes up saying "no devices found, ensure the device you are searching for is in pairing mode".

So I went on to the bluetooth area on Dell and my phone is on there but when I click on 'My Bluetooth settings' nothing comes up at all.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Many thanks

Which Dell Mini do you have? (910, 1010, 1011, 1012, 1018) What do you mean by "my phone is on there"? Do you have the Mini's Bluetooth set to "discoverable"?

It's a 1012. When I go on bluetooth my phone comes up on there so it's found my phone (indicating that the problem lies not with my phone). I think that the problem is that it's not set to discoverable, but my issue is that I cant access the settings to check/change it! When I click on 'My bluetooth settings' nothing happens.

What OS are you running? XP? Win7? Linux? You might try reinstalling the Bluetooth software from the Dell site.
