Having just discovered the Cingular group, I thought a little cross-posting
might be in order, since I can't tell how much of my question has to do with
the Motorola phone, the Cingular service, the HP laptop, or WinXP.

When you pair the phone with your bluetooth, does it not install a bluetooth

When I use the Bluetooth Wizard, under Bluetooth Device Selection, I put the

phone in discoverable mode, select the icon for "Motorola Phone", click

Next. Then I get a message box that says "Device 'Motorola Phone' does not

support service 'Fax'".

The Modems item in the WinXP Device Manager shows a "Bluetooth Modem".

Perhaps there needs to be some other type of device, like "Fax Modem". When

I run the Diagnostics in the Bluetooth Modem Properties it reports "The

connection could not be completed."

I think that there is probably a serial port involved, perhaps mis-paired,

involving COM5, COM7 and/or COM8; but the setup doesn't let me change them

freely to experiment.
