Hi Woodchip, Thanks for information, but I should have told you I'm running Windows 7 as the info you gave me does not seem to apply. Thanks. WS

Hi everybody and thanks for your help. With the help given, I managed to get Bluetooth working. I did the following. Go to control panel, then select "Vaio Control Center" then Network Connections. Now select Vaio Smart Network and click on the Advance Tab (next to OK) click on the little box by Bluetooth. Make sure the phone etc has Bluetooth enabled. Follow the on screen prompts and all should be OK. Hope this helps somebody else. Thanks for all the help. WS
