    One vote for the Linksys USBBT100 - no problems with it at all.

    I have the Kensington Adapter as well...it's only giving me one problem on my desktop PC, a minor issue with it not liking Dial-Up Networking, it keeps saying that there is not modem found, but under device manager there is a bluetooth modem sitting there...tried uninstalling and reinstalling but problem persists, I'll figure it out. OBEX and Audio Gateway work great though...

    And the adapter works great on my Laptop , no problems with OBEX transfers, audio gateways, or DUN.
    I'm running Windows XP Pro. SP1 (in case anyone cares.)

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16833147117

    I got that one. I don't do rebates and it was the cheapest one on Newegg... Less than $20 shipped to my door. Works great with my E815, no problems. (Just be careful when you cut the plastic open! I cut it kind of in the middle and ending up cutting right into the install CD, LOL. Had to grab the drivers from their website, but it worked fine after that.)

    Yes, that's teh one I'm currently using. Everything works fine if you just follow the directions on the D-Link website concerning the known issues with XP SP2. Took maybe 5 minutes to get everything set the way it was supposed to be.
    Just like most people:
    *DUN Enabled (used via NetZero)
    *OBEX File Transfers through my PC (via 'My Bluetooth Places', not MPT)
    *EvDO turned off (usually)
    *Memory/Transflash file transfer enabled
    And some other stuff... like a super sweet Bert and Ernie wallpaper

    Btw, compusa sells it for $39.99. http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...822&pfp=SEARCH

    But if you have a compusa near you, just get the ambicomm dongle for $29.99 as it uses a newer BT radio chip inside and uses newer widcomm drivers. http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...395&pfp=SEARCH

    Ok, just to be sure I am clear. To use a bluetooth dongle for MPT file transfes you must do the seem edit correct?

    To transfer RingTones/Graphics/Videos over using either "normal" Bluetooth OBEX file transfers or MPT via Bluetooth, YES, you need to do a seem edit (seem edits can only be done via USB cable).

    To use MPT via bluetooth for Calendar and Contact sync, no seem edit is needed.

    Red face USB Bluetooth Adapter-My adventures W/ one

    I bought the iogear mo. GBU221 usb blue tooth adapter from bestbuy.com, After following the directions by the book (something I rarely do) I've got it as far as connecting to the phone (provided there right next to each other) For about 3 sec's then it loses it. Initially about the first two days it worked great, I bluetoothed about five full songs to my vx9900,And Three pics from my computer just cut/paste to my sounds folder. Which wont let me apply as a ringtone.sux. But i can enjoy the full songs. Overall though it's been a royal pain in the ***. And there's my three cents (I can have 3 if I want to )
    I'm Cooler Than Everyone Here
