    Anyone try hotsyncing with their desktop via a USB bluetooth dongle? If so where did you buy the usb dongle. I'm thinking of buying one but I only see them on eBay from Hong Kong or England. I want to know it works first.

    Aside from being slow, it works fine. The Forum That Asks, "Are You Not Entertained?"

    I just bought one of those hong kong deals, but it shipped from the US. I bought the one with the USB extender and little antenna because it was supposed to have a 100M range. The sync works fine and I don't find it that incredibly slow. My only Bit*ch is that the range is nowhere near 100ft even. I live in a tri-level typical suburban home and if I leave the room that the base computer is in, it stops connecting.

    The only reason I bought one of the Ebay ones is that I have some cash in my Paypal account I was trying to burn through. If I had it to do over again I would buy one from Circuit city with a brand name. I only paid about $20 for mine so it isn't worth trying to return it. I may take it to my office to sync with my PC there and get a better one for my home so I can try the reverse DUN for email and web browsing.

    USB Bluetooth? CompUSA or Best Buy; I'd imagine anything along those lines like Fry's, etc would have it as well. It does indeed work, as mentioned, slightly on the slow side.

    I take the sd card out before sycning to speed things up... Then I just do a bt file transfer to get the few spreadsheets I need from my card on to my pc... And of course I use my card reader for the big files like movies & mp3s

    pretty much all dongles should be usable for hotsyncing. it would be interesting to know which bt dongles dont work with the treo for hotsyncing and file transfer.
