FIRST HAND: Updated Bluetooth experiences with the HTC Voyager

Last Friday I've reported about my first Bluetooth experiences with the HTC Voyager and two facts I've highlighted: that I wasn't able to bond the Smartphone with my Bluetooth headset and that I wasn't able to connect to GPRS via Bluetooth from my Pocket PC.
As I said the 2003 ROM I have on my Voyager is still not the final one and therefore it might not working proper with all planned functionalities, therefore I'm still not able to dial into GPRS but mea culpa - I was wrong with the headset!

In fact I got my test device delivered without any documentation or CR-ROM and also it doesn't includes the cradle, headset or pouch but the device and the charger only, so it's sometimes a little bit hard to find out all functionalities on a new device with new OS.

However, my fellow MVP Paul pointed me to the missing piece I haven't seen:

You CAN discover other devices (I got an e200 today too!)
Start -> Settings -> Bluetooth -> Bonded Devices -> New

And yes, that's what I've missed... :oops:


And here we go, after you've searched for the headset and paired it you are ready to go to use it with your Voyager Smartphone.

Sorry again for this misinformation :oops: but also this can happens. However, I've wasted the complete evening yesterday to find out how to dial into the GPRS network from a HP iPAQ H5400 with Windows Mobile 2003 and still had no luck at all.
