How to ActiveSync using bluetooth

This is the guide on how to sync your phone via blue tooh without using the USB Cable/Data cable (Microsoft Active Sync) We will start with the configuration from the Computer,

STEP 1: First go to your Bluetooth configuration, for my case it is located in the System Tray (right clicking on the Bluetooth icon, and choose Bluetooth Configuration)


you can Go to Control Panel -> Bluetooth Configuration For this example, it is Port 7 (Bluetooth Serial Port) You could have a bluetooth Serial port, if you have installed Microsoft ActiveSync, if not you could manually add a Bluetooth Serial Port.
