Well, first off, on the PC:
* go to bluetooth configuration an delete any partnership with the WM / PPC device
* still on the bluetooth configuration / Local Services Tab remove the BT Serial Port and save (OK / OK)
* again on the bluetooth configuration / Local Services Tab ADD a new BT Serial Port, and mark the "Startup Automaticaly" and "Secure Connection" and save (OK / OK)
* follow the steps above for "Configuration on the Windows XP Service Pack 2 computer" BUT also CREATE THE BLUETOOTH PARTNERSHIP ON THE COMPUTER (if the Windows Mobile device does not show when looking for devices to connect to, ensure that it has the Bluetooth turned on and is "discoverable"
* follow the steps indicated on screen, both on the PC and WM device, like defining the password, accepting the connection, marking the "allways accept (...) from this device", etc.
On the Windows Mobile Device:
* go to the Bluetooth configuration (Start / Settings / connections / Comm Manager)
* Choose "Bluetooth Options" followed by "Paired devices"
* Open the properties for you paired PC (tap and hold, choose "Properties"
* Certify that the "ActiveSync" service is marked
Before, if I'd paired from the HTC device instead, only "Bluetooth serial port" would show under the available services on the PC.
Hope this helps.
