    How to use ActiveSync through Bluetooth

    I am running Windows XP operating system on my computer. I have a Windows Mobile phone with me which I would like to connect to my computer but I don't know how to do so. Someone advised me to use ActiveSync. Is there any one out who can teach me how to use ActiveSync through Bluetooth to connect my Windows Mobile phone?

    Before using ActiveSync through Bluetooth there are some requirements that you need to have in order to get it functional. The first and very essential is Windows XP with atleast Service Pack 2. If you don't know how to see this then go to Desktop and right click on "My Computer" icon. Select Properties. Now in General tab you will find all your system related information. Just see which service pack do you have and upgrade accordingly. The next and obvious is ActiveSync and Bluetooth.
