Thinkpad + Bluetooth ?

I have the IBM X31. It has bluetooth. I have a Plantronics 320  bluetooth headset. The X31 recognizes it. When I open the bluetooth devices it is listed there under Audio Devices.

But nothing beyond this. I mean how do I get for the X31 sound to come out of my bluetooth headset? When I click on the 320 There is an option for properties, when I click on properties I have Services, and when I go into Services (the heading of which says - This Bluetooth device offers the following services) I just get a blank screen.

Right click your speaker in the task bar and select "adjust audio properties" or open the control panel and select "Sounds and Audio Devices". Now select the "Audio" tab and make sure you have selected the blue tooth device as your playback device.

the playback device does not give bluetooth as an option.

Then you probably need extra software from the device's manufacturer.

I guess then that I'm out of luck.
Cause I just spoke to Plantronics and theyr device does not with the bluetooth. I guess I will return this bluetooth and find one that will work.
