Wonderful experience on my Mac (Mac OS X 10.4). I didn't even install any software - just thought I'd see what happened if I plugged it in the spare USB port on my keyboard. Success - the device was automatically recognised and I was transferring photos from my mobile phone within about two minutes. What a bargain!

This IS compatible with Windows Vista, I have it running now, but it took a lot of time getting it to work, thus the lack of one star.
However, do not try to install from the CD. The drivers will install, and ask you to reboot. However, upon reboot, the dongle will still not work.

You need the F8T013 Driver Vista32 (version 6.0.1) driver from the Belkin Support site. Unfortunately, I cannot link here due to Amazons strict hot-linking policy. Then plug in the usb stick, and run the "SETUP" File. After this, an icon should appear in the taskbar, and you're able to transfer.

This stick is tiny! I've used it to transfer items off my W810i, and even used my phone as a bluetooth remote control. Really good at tricking people by telling them you have a voice activated mouse whilst you navigate with the phone in your hand. They'll never suspect!!

I was a bit worried about buying this, having read some of the reviews. I needed to connect my new, Windows Vista laptop, to my old Sony Z600 mobile phone for using the internet when working away from home. There was no support for my old USB phone cable so this bluetooth dongle looked like the answer, and it was!

It says on the box that it's Vista compatible and it is. Just make sure that you put the CD in before you plug the dongle in. I wonder if this is a newer version of the product? The Vista drivers are on the CD, you don't need to track them down on the interweb.

I've connected to the internet (you may need a user ID, password and CID number from your phone company to do this) and sent JPEGS to and from my phone with no problem at all.

I purchased the adapter for the sole purpose of easing the downloading of photos to the PC from my moblie phone. It couldn't be faster, I installed the software in five minutes and it works great. I don't need to mess with the memory stick, just send the photos by bluetooth and it's done. The photos are saved in a dedicated file and they can easily be moved to another location. There's loads more you can do of course, but that's for another day.

Plugged it into the keyboard and 2 mins later was transferring photos and video clips from my phone to my Mac (OS X 10.4) with no problems whatsoever.
Exactly what I needed.
Recommended.

I have always found bluetooth devices a little daunting. This USB adaptor installs a lot of software which seems confusing but it all works. I have installed Nokia PC Suite and all my phone information has been synchronised. At todays price of £7.99 it's a steal.

I bought this item to transfer photos from mobile phones onto my computer, which runs Microsoft Vista. Despite some of the negative comments in other reviews, I loaded the relevant drivers from the supplied CD and the Bluetooth adapter has worked first time with various mobile phones (all Nokia, if you are interested). Transfer of photos is fast and reliable.

As with most Belkin products it is extremely reliable and easy to install. I have connected my mobile telephone and downloaded photographs without any hassle.

It is very small but this isn't an issue as you don't want see it when connected to your PC; all you want it to do is to 'do the business', and it does that very well.
