2. Get Connected > Configure Bluetooth for Windows

Configure Bluetooth for Windows

Configure and set up a Windows PC to work with your Nokia smartphone over a Bluetooth connection.

Bluetooth support in the Windows operating system was weak until Windows XP Service Pack 2 (SP2), which significantly improved Bluetooth support. In this hack, I cover Bluetooth for both Windows XP SP2 computers and older Windows computers.

Tip

Windows XP Service Pack 2 is a free upgrade for all Windows XP computers that includes greatly enhanced security and better WiFi and Bluetooth support. I highly recommend that you download and install it.

Once you have the Bluetooth connection set up, you can follow the instructions in “Use Bluetooth to Replace Cables” [Hack #11] to pair the phone with the PC.
