Re: How to access bluetooth phone?

Good so far, now make your cell phone discoverable.  That's in bluetooth 
settings somewhere then try that again.  If that fails, see if you can 
make your computer discoverable and try taking the computer over with 
the cell phone.  Some of these pieces of equipment really don't work.
