    Thanks!
    I should have made detailed notes as I got the thing working, but I flailed around a bit...mainly because I'm averse to reading manuals and directions. It seemed logical to me that step 1 would be BT pairing, but that turns out to be a non-issue; BT just needs to be on. (You did set the switch to SPP didn't you?) There's a hole near the on-off switch you can poke to make the keyboard visible for pairing, but it seems to be in the pairing mode when it is turned on, so I've never had to poke it. Here's the process I use that always works:
    Turn on BT
    Launch Keypro, and immediately turn on the keyboard.
    The Keypro driver first says connecting, then connected...and at this point you're good to go.
    I'm assuming you watched the video about using the Keypro driver...it would have eliminated my initial flailing, I think, but I didn't watch it until I was already flailing.

    Tried again. Uninstalled and then re-downloaded Keypro. Followed instructions. First Keypro couldn't find any keyboard- then it found the Freedom Pro. I got to connecting, and after several minutes, a message appeared saying there was a "problem pairing with bluetooth device". Then it goes back and tries to connect.
    Could I have a defective keyboard? It's brand new, just came today. I am on SPP. In fact, I've tried to rapid switching from HID to SPP. That didn't help either.
    Where is there a video, please?

    But please don't ask me how that happened, because I'm not sure. I went to the Freedom Pro website and followed their instructions, which called for trying to pair from the within the bluetooth settings, and entering a code (0000). That seemed to do it.
    Thanks for the help!

    Wow. I wasn't able to get it working by BT pairing. I did find this link, though, that you should tuck away somewhere in case things go awry:

    First of all the Universal 2 is a piece of crap!

    It totally sucks!

    But i'm stuck with it. My problem is there is no driver for it.

    Can you help me find a driver that would allow me to use this keyboard.

    I'm hesitant to purchase keypro because the free one doesn't work at all. does anyone know if the 10 dollar one works better or if there is another driver?
