    6600 Bluetooth Dial Up Networking with Laptop-passkey?

    Hi,

    I know if anyone can help me you guys can. I bought a bluetooth adapter for my laptop and I have been able to do activesync just fine with my PPC 6600. However, whenever I try to connect to dial up my phone asks for a passkey. Should I have gotten one with my phone? If so where would I find it. I think that's the only thing stopping me at this point. I have scoured the posts looking for anything regarding the passkey for a while tonight with no luck.

    Thanks!

    P.S. I can dialup via USB with no problem.

    just enter anything you will be prompted on the other device afterwards.

    its a good idea to keep the passkey for security reasons. without it who know who could be getting info from your system.

    ok either you didnt read the thread or you have no idea how BT works.

    there is no assigned passkey on the 6600 you make one up everytime you pair the device with a new device

    i realize you pick your own passkey. i've been running the bt connection for a while. what i was saying is it is smarter to use a passkey for a bt laptop connection than just connect without it. i was responding to his stating he disabled the need for a passkey to connect to his pc and phone using bt. i have mine set to be the same as my lock for the phone.
