    Hi and Happy new year!
    I can't connect the xperia X8 with my computer by bluetooth.
    The X8 says paired but not connected. Anyone knows what happens?
    Can I put tasks in it too?
    Thank you.

    Maybe your computer needs proper drivers to recognize your phone. If so, download the PC Companion from the Sony Ericsson web. Do the How To Connect from it and I'm sure it will work fine.

    I downloaded the PC Companion but it doesn't have the 'How to connect'. It pairs ok but it can't connect.

    Try this, turn off the Bluetooth on your phone and start the PC Companion, on the top left corner (If the phone is not connected) you will see No Phone Connected and right below that the "How to Connect" option. Click on it and follow the on-screen instructions. If you don't see that then I'd suggest to uninstall PC Companion, go to the link below download it again and re-install it here

    I start PC Companion without to connect the phone. I click the "How to Connect" option. It opens a window with three connection types to connect: 1) usb cable 2) wifi connection. This option is only supported by Android phones with software version 2.3 or later. 3) bluetooth connection. This option is only supported by non Android phones. It doesn't let me click on that. I can't understand what happens.

    I have the version 2.1-update 1. I tried to connect to the laptop at my work and I did it. I can't connect to my laptop but I can connect to it with different phone.
