    Bluetooth on Vostro 1500? "Error: Host down"

    Hi there,

    I am trying to pair my scala-600 with my dell vostro 1500 and am receiving the following error. "Couldn't display "obex://[00:0A:9B:60:6C:8D]/". Error: Host down. Please select another viewer and try again" after right clicking the bluetooth notification in the top panel>browse device>connect with the headset in discovery mode.

    I have followed this link as well as this one.

    Does anyone have any suggestions?
