Is Bluetooth enabled on the maxx Ve?


Apr 24, 2007, 6:42 PM
Looking to use the iSync software with my Mac laptop. Any hands-on experiences are appreciated, and I'll post my experiences should I go with this handset.

I can almost guarantee you Verizon has disabled OBEX and OPP profiles on this device, as they have every other device they've ever released. The day us Mac users get to use our bluetooth Verizon phones, fully featured, with iSync is the day hell freezes over.

mongoos, thx.

This Apple website notes that my RAZR v3c won't sync, but it doesn't explicitly say other, newer Verzion Wireless phones (e.g. RAZR K1m) won't sync.

Any thoughts? I am looking to do a simple calendar sync from the Mac's iCal to my phone. Is this not feasible for even the newer Verizon Wireless phones?

I don't have a mac, so I can't comment on iSync, but I have been able to pair this phone to my PC and use OPP to push content from my phone to the "Bluetooth Exchange Folder" on my pc and I've also been able to use OBEX to copy music files directly to the internal memory and the memory card. IT WORKS!!!

Yes it is. OPP works for pictures only. Also there is BT DUN but my experiences are quite sporatic with it working. I am very disappointed that VZAcces Manager does not work with the MAXX Ve as of yet. It is very sad right now that I have to use BT DUN instead of using the usb cable and VZAccess Manager.

The phone has SyncML, according to this:

I have VZ Access Manager working with my Ve. What version do you have? Mine says 5.9.2 in the help menu.

I don't have any real world knowledge on the phone yet but I was able to get the legal terms from the training I just took on the phone

Last night I went in to the Verizon Wireless store in Woodinville, WA. They had a live maxx Ve on the floor and so I brought my laptop to do a simple test.

They wouldn't even let me try, told me no way it would work, and said they don't allow it since it risks corrupting the phone and the warranty. What a load of crap. I know they butcher the firmware to lock people into Verizon's pay-for-it services.

Perhaps someone from Verizon Wireless is reading this. Perhaps they just don't care. I'll be bailing out of my contract and paying my $500 'ish per month (very high-volume usage) to another company...
