Dear Edd

I am having the same problem : that is my t610 is seen by BT but the SE
software can't see the phone. Yous suggest
"the most obvious one is that you don't have permission to write to
/dev/rfcomm*". How do you check thuis and how do you put it right ?

I'd be grateful for your advice.

Best wishes

if you're not truly connected (I know, I need to fix that!) There could be
several reasons why you can't connect, the most obvious one is that you
don't have permission to write to /dev/rfcomm*.
