    Via the Toshiba bluetooth on this PC, the PC finds the cell phone, but
    recognizes and configures it as a modem.

    Is there a way to configure the bluetooth connection such that I can
    use it with Motorola's Phone Tools and work with the phone as a more
    generic device?

    I had a Dell XPS system. Although it didn't have built-in bluetooth, I
    used a Logitech bluetooth device that came with a keyboard/mouse. It
    worked with the phone just fine.

    Who's cell phone is it? Many cell companies lock down features they don't
    want you to have. Verizon (US) and Telus (Canada) are famous for that.

    I haven't succeeded in doing it with my Cingular V3 either.

    MPT installs its own set of drivers and modem(s) for a given phone and
    has the option for BT although I've never used it. In the program
    itself one has the option to select the connection method and the modem
    used to connect. You might try and for information on how MPT works with BT.

    my son just demonstrated to me the blue tooth working on a E1405 with
    his motorola phone with cingular. he was able to transfer pics, and
    videos and music back and forth.

    so it does work if you have the right carrier.
    i hear that verizon doesnt work.

    motorola phone tools and dell bluetooth

    For some reason, motorola phone tools does not work with my onboard bluetooth device (dell/toshiba). Phonetools keeps asking me to plug in a usb blue tooth adapter. To get around this...

    1. Add the phone(s) to your list of blue tooth devices as usual. COM ports will be set up for each phone as a modem.

    2. Connect phone tools to a phone via a direct usb wire. This will establish a usb modem connection - so that phone tools can actually start.

    3. Once phone tools is up and running, change the connection in the general settings from the usb modem to the bluetooth modem (easy since it's already mapped to a COM port). Phonetools menu > Set up > General Set up - communications tab.

    The modem connected via blue tooth may not be obvious. Mine is called "standard 33600 pbs Modem".
