Bluetooth w/Lptp & Connecting with USB cable

     :smileymad:I can not get my LG Revolution to connect via bluetooth to my laptop. the drivers that it needs are not there. There are 2 "bluetooth peripheral device" drivers needed and I can't find them. Can someone please HELP me!!!!!

     On previous phones that I have had all you had to do was download drivers from a disc or website (both were provided) and follow the Step-By-Step instructions, plug it in and you were good to go. Not with this one. Not once in any of the instructions has it said that in order to debug you had to connect it as internet.! And I still have not figured out how to sync the media files with sync on my laptop. My Lg doesn't show up in any of the programs I normally use to sync. The VZ Media Manager, well, I still have not found a two way sync option,nor have I found a copy option. Only a transfer.

     Could someone please give me a full descriptions on each of the USB connection options, and how and what instances to use them!!!!!

Here is the working solution for this issue I found this at and used it and it worked everytime...



I tried several other solutions but none of them worked perfectly as the last one that I tried after vigorously searching online.
Here's what I did when bluetooth on Windows 7 PCs that I had, didn't work with my iPhone:

- Download the 'Windows Mobile Device Center' ( current version is 6.1 ) which you can download it from
this works for both Vista and Windows 7. I've tried it on both.

- Install the downloaded software but it may not look like it worked on Windows 7 PCs. Vista automatically configures the settings on the bluetooth devices but for those who have Windows 7, here are the things you should do:

- Go to 'Device Manager' from 'Control Panel' -Or- just right-click on Computer Icon and choose 'Properties' and then click on 'Device Manager'.

- You'll see an 'Unknown Device' named 'Bluetooth Peripheral Device'

- Right-Click it and click on "Update Driver Software" -Or- anyway you find it easy to bring up the Update driver window.

- Click "Browse My Computer for Driver Software" button.

- Click "Let Me Pick from a List of Device Drivers on my computer".

- Select 'Bluetooth Radio' from the list if it asked you to select and then in the next window, it will show a list of drivers with Company Names in one list and Drivers in another. In the Company List choose 'Microsoft Corporation', not only Microsoft.

- From the drivers list there may be one or more drivers with the name "Windows Mobile-Based Device Support" with different driver versions. Select one or the latest.

- Ignore any warnings and keep pressing next and then Finish at last. If all goes well, the last screen will show the message that device driver is successfully installed.

Now, after manually updating the driver for your bluetooth device, in 'Device Manager' when you click on 'Bluetooth Radios', it should display one more item which will say 'Windows Mobile-based device support'.

There are few more things that you want to pay attention to. If you have already added the device in your 'bluetooth device list' that didn't work, then remove the device and add it again. After you add it, you might need to restart the computer if it gave you a connection problem error message.

Every PCs that had Windows 7 and Vista worked after installing this software and I hope it will work for you too.
