I was really please when, after many, many hours of fiddling, I managed to get my XDA Orbit 2 to sync with thunderbird and lightning over bluetooth. I even managed to get it working again when lightning upgraded, and when I got the calendar working off a google calendar.
Then about a week ago, it stopped working. On the phone, it's come up with a friendly and useful error message instead of the usual activesync scree. The message is:
Of course I do have Activesync installed. In fact, after changing the com port activesync is listening on from com 7 to com 1 (for some reason now if Activesync is set to Com7 when you view the available services over bluetooth on the phone it lists a serial port but no Activesync - no idea why that suddenly stopped working). Activesync does now connect to the phone over bluetooth, abd you can explore the device, but it is listed as a Guest and doesn't sync - when you connect Activesync gives this error:to synchronize your device with a desktop computer, install the synchronization software from the Getting Started Disc included with your device on your PC.
If your company supports syncing directly with its Exchange Server you can set up your device to sync with it.

Any ideas???Synchonization cannot be completed successfully. Reconnect your device and try again. If the problem persists, see the Microsoft Activesync help on your desktop computer
BTW I'm running XP, and I have already tried turning the firewall off and re-pairing the phone and computer - but then it is actually connecting to activesync, just not as the right account, but as aguest, so I guess bluetooth is doing it's thing ok, it's probably something else, either birdiesync or activesync...
