    Tried to connect the S3 to my laptop (built-in bluetooth) automatically, OK.
    Enabled my new PC bluetooth dongle csr4.0 in Windows 7 and tried to connect on my S3.
    Scanning - Confirm xxxxx (random? 6 digit number) is used - OK - scanning - "wrong pincode or password".

    What am I doing wrong?

    Cheers, Barend

    This is the second time in a few days that I have seen a similar question and the thing that stumps me is that I have never encountered a BT devices that requires 6 digits to pair. It has always been either 4 or none depending on the device. I know I'm no help, just thought I'd chime in. ;)

    Have you tried using Kies Software already installed on the phone? It connects through the wifi router. The few PC Bluetooth's I've seen have been finicky.
