Problem with Bluetooth 7220 Extensa!

My new Extensa 7220 has a bluetooth switch on the front but does not seem to do anything. I have even attached a bluetooth dongle but the switch is still unresponsive. I have read through the manuals and they mention the bluetooth and talk as if it's integral but nothing seems to work for me. I want to get some items off my phone onto the laptop but neither BT or IR connections work and both are switched on on the phone and as far as I know on the Laptop.
Please help.

You might look into the Acer Notebook Manager..Also in Device Manager to see if if has a yellow check mark..If you have a dongle it should have come with software, probably Widcomm which has to be set up. If you have installed the software and still don't see icons in your tray or on desktop, the software has to be installed. Bluetooth needs a software "stack" to operate. Bluetooth is however "vexing" to make it work for me.. Good luck!!!
