    I got a Bluetooth dongle for my new Win7 Professional computer.

    I am trying to establish a link between the Z30 and the computer. I installed the drivers (a few glitches) but they apparently paired and I got a CODE which matched. The Z30 shows the computer in its BT list as 'Saved' But when I tap on it to try connecting I get a message that I need to set up Tethering in Settings. That then says I need my Carrier involved. I am not trying to leach or steal data from the phone to use. I am merely trying to be able to share files between Z30 and computer. I use to be able to do this with my Z10 on a different computer.

    Screen capture of the messages:

    Carrier is Verizon. And I'm not trying to TETHER. Only trying to move files via bluetooth. But apparently Verizon has locked up any bluetooth that can be used to share data!!!!
