Bluetoothing

Well, I'm part way there in my efforts to sync my T3 with my work desktop over Bluetooth. Both of the units can discover the other but when I tap the Hotsync button, the T3 fails with

Error: Serial: timeout. Could be bad cable or faulty Modem. (0x0305)

I can use hcitool to get bits of info from the T3

so I know BT is active on both. I just can't get the T3 to establish a connection for some reason.

I suppose I could just bag the whole thing and go out to get a new cable or cradle to sync and charge with. That would be so un-geeky of me though.
