I have Bluetooth phone, and Bluetooth dongles on PC (XP home) and laptop (Win 98SE).
Laptop and PC paired successfully, PC and phone also talk to each other. Laptop will not detect phone. Anyone have any ideas. Is it OS problem? I am reluctant to go to XP on the laptop because of the smallish HD.

Installed the software for the phone ( Nokia etc. ) that will instal the correct setting to connect to the phone.

Mine installed the correct port setting to connect depending on the choice i made on instal ( cable, bluetooth, IRDA )

Hellred - thanks for answering. It's a Sony Ericsson P900, and yes, I have installed the software, exactly as I did on the desktop machine.
Laptop won't even see the phone, let alone pair with it!
