Synchronizing my Outlook with my T610

I have a Sony Ericsson T610 cell phone, one Microsoft Outlook 2002 (yeah, I know…), a Bluetooth dongle I’ve forgotten model and make of, and XTNDCOnnect PC.

Once upon a time, they were all able to communicate with each other and everything was good. Then suddently, a mysterious thing happened, and XTNDConnect PC would no longer talk to the T610. Nothing I did, would make it want to again – until now.

This is how I made my Outlook synchronize tasks and events with my Sony Ericsson T610 over Bluetooth via XTNDConnect PC, and it’s here so I can read it next time my computer decides to give me grief over this.

  1. Make sure Bluetooth is turned on, both in the phone and the dongle

Bluetooh Setup Wizard

  1. Open Bluetooh Setup Wizard (from the Bluetooth icon in the systray)
  2. Select “I want to find a specific…”
  3. Select T610
  4. Enable Serial Port 1, on COM5
  5. Finish

Advanced Configuration

  1. Open Advanced Configuration (from the Bluetooth icon in the systray)
  2. Under Local services:
    1. Bluetooh Serial Port on COM6, start up automatically
  3. Client applications
    1. Add Bluetooh Serial Port on COM5

Control panel

  1. Open Phone Monitor in Windows XP Control Panel
  2. Under COM-ports:
    1. Enable COM5, reserved
    2. Disable COM6, not reserved


  1. “Synchronize now” in Outlook

This worked for me and it might work for you too.
