Which OS are you using on your laptop? There seem to be a couple of
bluetooth related bugs in recent linux distros, e.g. Ubuntu 11.10. There

Perhaps I am missing something obvious? Any suggestions are welcome.
There might be a simple answer: I use my work machine for sync, which
still runs Ubuntu 10.04. Bluetooth works there.

being lost, etc. So there is still room for improvement.
