    Certain notebook computers come with the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack. Mine is a New Dell Latitude. The problem with Toshiba Bluetooth Stack is that it does not play very will with the Treo (well documented on various sites). In fact, it is next to impossible to setup Treo bluetooth DUN with the Toshiba Bluetooth Stack unless you are using the most recent drivers.

    Solution:

    1. Remove the current Toshiba Bluetooth Stack, but going to the Windows Add/Remove Programs utility in Control Panel and Uninstalling.
    2. Reboot computer.
    3. Download the current Toshiba Bluetooth Stack from there: http://aps.toshiba-tro.de/bluetooth/pages/download.php
    4. Install the new Toshiba Bluetooth Stack. The installer seems to stall for 5-10 min. Leave it alone otherwise the install will be corrupt.
    5. Reboot computer.
    6. Access the Windows Control Panel and then the Bluetooth Local COM app. Take note of the COM port number identified as “LocalCOM Server” On my machine it is COM 9.
    7. Right click on the Hotsync icon in the system tray (note: if the icon is not visible, you may need to start the Hotsync manager). When the flyout menu appears, select the Setup option.
    9. In the Setup Dialog Box, select the Modem tab and then set the Serial Port the to COM port number you identified in step 6. Click OK to save changes.
    10. Right click on the Hotsync icon once again (in the system tray) and put a check mark next to the Modem option at the top of the menu.
    11. Make sure your Treo has your PC as a trusted device. If it doesn’t then follow standard procedure to pare your Treo to your PC.
    12. From your Treo, attempt a Bluetooth Hotsync. If it is successful, then you are good to go. If not, then you’ll need to work through the previous steps until you can do a Bluetooth Hotsync.
    13. Download a DUN modem driver for your Treo. A nice turnkey solution is PDAnet: http://www.junefabrics.com/palmnet/ Another solution is Verizon’s PalmTether driver: http://www.vzam.net/
    14. Following the instructions provided by PDAnet or Palmtether, setup a Bluetooth DUN connection using the COM port identified in step 6.

    There are a few steps to actually complete my step 14, but they are will documented. I highly recommend PDANet even if you are paying for tethering as this app is well supported and automates most of the setup.

    I'm not seeing any indication in either the software or the license file that this download is a 30 day trial.

    Are you sure you downloaded this exact software?

    I will check again tonight. When I put my cursor over the bluetooth icon in the taskbar, the info balloon that popped up , said it had 30 days to be registered.This is where we first tried it, and everyone had the same issue.

    I'll recheck as well. I don't recall ever seeing a balloon popup with such a message. I did start with a Toshiba Bluetooth stack from Dell. Maybe it pulled some of my past registration info from this previous install..
