Vista-Nokia 6131 bluetooth connection


I need to know which steps to take to have a nokia 6131 connect to a vista laptop (hp pavilion dv6000) with a usb bluetooth card.

I don't have the phone right now, so this might be a little wierd, but trying to gather the info.

Nokia pc-suite already installed.
When I click on the bluetooth icon in the tray the "bluetooth settings" opens, (with a toshiba logo? the usb key is sbs brand)
I see the nokia icon, and in the details on the port name it has COM40.

I tried to add a new device, another phone, and it sees it, though it asks for a pin which I don't know if it is the phone's (which doesn't have one) or the pc.

At this time some general ideas are welcome.

Hopefully by tomorrow I'll have some more info to add.

thank you.

If it asks for PIN, then you are probably almost connected.  Many manufacturers will have a default pin like "1234" or "1111" to connect.
When pairing bluetooth devices and connection, sometimes it is required to enter a PIN or what they call a passkey to enable access for each of the bluetooth devices. This PIN is for the bluetooth configuration and not for the phone itself. So if you configured your phones bluetooth and enabled a passkey access, then you have to enter that passkey. Or the other way around, if you configured the bluetooth of your laptop to enter a passkey then you should enter that.

More info here on bluetooth pairing.

I called nokia, it was a problem with their software and vista, I had to uninstall, and reinstall it 3 times, and update vista - last update was yesterday!

I thank you for the time and effort. I'll ask cs to decide what to do with this.
oh ok....same 'ol prob with vista. ;-)
