Hello! I was trying to use bluetooth to synch my Blackberry Perl phone with my Dell Desktop running Win XP SP2. After reading info on the Blackberry site about why their software would not allow me to enable a bluetooth connection, I uninstalled the Widcomm bluetooth software from the add/remove programs from the PC. The Blackberry site said that I could only synch wirelessly if the MS bluetooth stack was in control.

Now that I uninstalled the Widcomm software, I don't have bluetooth in the control panel or the devices listing. I tried to
scan for new devices, but no bluetooth.

It's funny though, I am using a bluetooth mouse and keyboard, and they are working fine. I cannot, however, pair my phone anymore.

Any help would be great! Thanks!!!
