How to set up BLUETOOTH sync between DELL AXIM X50V and MOTOROLA V3 GSM to SYNC SMS (receive/send) between the two devices

Posted on 2006-05-12

Hi - I want to be able to sync my Dell Axim with my Motorola V3 so I can manage: my GPRS internet connections; manage my SMS and fax communications; and sync SMS messages (NOT PIM contacts/tasks etc) via Bluetooth.

Is there an OS setting, Bluetooth patch for Windows Mobile 2000SE or a Motorola V3 setting etc that I can implement?

Currently, the Axim X50v can discover these two Bluetooth Device Services on the Motorola V3:
- Transfer File OBEX; and
- Samb. Gateway Jar.

- Neither of these services allow SMS to be synced (send/receive) between the two devices.  Samb. Gateway Jar. is a software modem? and Transfer File OBEX allows only audio/video/image file transfers.

- Software for Windows Mobile, eg BRVP Pocket PhoneTools 5, cannot find the modem on the Motorola V3.

OS info:

Dell Axim X50v
- Windows Mobile 2003SE  4.21.1088.3
- ROM Version A05 (inc Bluetooth stack BTW-CE - see

Motorola V3
- Flex: GSMV3xxT677LM18E -
- Platform: Major version: 0E Minor version: 42
- DSP: ROM version number: 62 patch version number: 34 RAM version number: 34
- Release label: @(#)R374_G_0E.42.10R_A

Thanks for looking at this question - hope you can help!

    I have Motorola V551 and Dell V51x..
    And you can't solve it, because for SMS sync(Send/Recive) you have to have "Serial Port Service" (like Virtual Com Port) on your Cell phone.  Motorola don't have it, so you can't solve this problem.

    And About GPRS - You have "Samb. Gateway Jar Service", use it, you'll get something like "Motorola V3 Software modem" in PDA Network Managment.

    For Manage  SMS and fax communications you need Serial Port Service.

    For some reasone ($$$) motorolla make it where you pretty much have to use their phone tools software to connect to their phones if you want to manage them, and I don't think they support pocket pc just desktop. It is about $30 and worth it really but disappointing you have to pay for it by force.
