I have Toshiba sattellite L500 and a blackberry bold 9000.  I am also have Blackberry Desktop Software v6.0.0.40. I have paired my blackberry with the Bluetooth Manager.  However, when I open the Blackberry Desktop Software and go to Tools > Desktop Options > Bluetooth tab I find that the Bluetooth functionality is not accessible (greyed out).  Is there anyway to resolve this as I would like to sync using Bluetooth.

They key to this is using Windows drivers for Bluetooth and not the one that came with the Toshiba, see this link for a howto

Thanks.  the only issue now seems to be with the Blackberry.  Under the Bluetooth options the services Desktop Connectivity and Wireless Bypass are greyed out.  Is there a way to fix that?
