    My 700p (VZW) refuses to Hotsync with my iMac (Core Duo), with or without Missing Sync software installed. I've spent hours fiddling around and scouring the net, but to no avail. Please help.

    -the 700p successfully pairs with the iMac and in fact I've been able to transfer files from the computer to the Treo via BT.

    -the 700p successfully syncs with the iMac via USB, both with or without Missing Sync

    -the 700p successfully works with a Motorola BT headset

    I'm happy to give more details if you ask, but this has been very frustrating.

    Thanks.

    Check your preferences under Missing Sync, make sure Bluetooth is checked.

    Mine works fine with a MacBook Pro. Did you do the step in the 700p bluetooth app to setup the bluetooth hotsync? Click on the setup devices then on the hotsync setup button.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    I don't mean to hijack this thread from salvatorej, but I have a very similar problem and would also like your assistance.

    I am unable to perform a Bluetooth HotSync between a 700p (mine is on Sprint) and an iMac G5. The devices are paired, but each attempt to perform the Bluetooth HotSync results in an error message that the port is in use by another application, followed by the Treo resetting. I have been through that many times.

    I have tried to follow bcaslis's instruction to do the Bluetooth HotSync setup on the 700p (again), and I think I have done it correctly, but all of the step-by-step instructions on the Treo seem to assume I will sync with a Windows device -- the repeated references to a "System tray" and "local tab" on the "PC" do not make complete sense to me on my iMac.

    I have been through the iMac procedure to set up a bluetooth connection with a mobile phone, and in the Bluetooth sharing preferences I have a Bluetooth-PDA-Sync port turned on. I have set it to show in network preferences, but in network preferences that port appears to be all about communication outside of these two devices, as if I am just going to use the Treo as a modem to an internet service provider. Did I set something up wrong?

    Perhaps I should mention that I do not use Missing Sync, just Palm Desktop 4.2.2 with HotSync manager 3.2.1. I can perform a USB HotSync just fine. I am really interested in performing the Bluetooth HotSync to verify that Bluetooth is working correctly on my Treo before I purchase Bluetooth accessories.

    Advice, please?

    Thanks.
