I was wondering if anyone had a good source of step by step instructions for setting up a treo to sync with a PC via bluetooth (win xp, activesync 4.1, treo 700w (verizon).  I tried it and failed - I'm sure I could keep digging and get the right information, but I figured I'd ask here first.

Connect to a PC using Bluetooth  
 Follow the instructions in ActiveSync Help on the PC for configuring Bluetooth on your PC to support ActiveSync.
On the phone Home screen, click Start > ActiveSync.
Click Menu > Connect via Bluetooth. Ensure that the phone and PC are within close range.
If this is the first time you have connected to this PC via Bluetooth, you must complete the Bluetooth wizard on the phone and set up a Bluetooth partnership with the PC before synchronizing.
Click Sync.
When finished, click Menu > Disconnect Bluetooth.
To preserve battery power, turn off Bluetooth.
