Idea: Microsoft should bundle a Bluetooth keyboard with select Windows Phone 7 devices

Ive been thinking about the prospects of Microsofts Windows Phone platform and how it can compete with Apples iOS and Googles Android.

There are no doubts in my mind the Redmond giant is seriously committed to drive its mobile game forward but thus far they failed to reach the tipping point. Sure developers know Microsoft wont give up that easily and are porting their apps in volumes. However, at the moment not that many peop

    Hi durden

    I have the ACER aspire 4820T that comes with bluetooth inbuilt. I have the Microsoft bluetooth mouse 5000. I have always been using it with no problems. Suddenly it stopped working.

    As usual, I thought I can just re-installing it by using the pairing function under the bluetooth panel “Add a device”. Best part is the wizard just keeps going and never stops. My mouse is already in pairing mode.

    Next check under devices/printers and believe it or not, it appears as indicated. However under the bluetooth control panel (Show Bluetooth devices), no mouse. In the devices & printers panel, the mouse shows up.

    I cannot use the mouse or do a manual installation.

    I have also tried to upgrade the drivers for the bluetooth and still not working. Tried the mouse with another computer and no problem. Can anybody advise how to do a reset of the bluetooth module or settings?

    Short of a complete reinstallation of win 7 (which I hope to avoid just for one mouse), I have run out of ideas.

    Hope somebody can render any insight as to how to resolve the issue.

    Durden, did you contact Acer support about this? I tried to but they just blame the mouse and software? Any luck on your side?

    Thanks for reading.
