A good guide - I'm sure it will help many people.
A couple of points, if you create the ports on the phone first, when you pair with the PC it will automatically create the incoming port so you don't need to do this first.
The Inbound port on the phone (COM6) does not need to be enabled, only the outbound port (COM7) does.
In your example the incoming port on the PC is COM7 which is the same as the outbound port on the phone, this does not have to be and indeed, usually is not, the case.
A problem lots of people face is where the incoming port on the PC is allocated a port number > 9 as ActiveSync will not recognise it. To change it Under Control Panel -> Phone and Modem Options-> Modem select "Standard Modem over BlueTooth link", click properties->Advanced tab click " Advanced Port Settings" select the drop down box for Port number. In here you will see a list of ports lots of which might have (In Use) by them. Select a port (between 3 and 9) that you know is NOT in use (even if it says it is) and click through all the warnings that your PC might explode and cause world war 3 if you do so. When you have done this turn BT OFF on the phone and restart the PC. When the PC has restarted turn BT back ON on the phone and all should work.
Another common problem is when people reboot there PC with BT turned ON on the phone. ActiveSync will then not recognise the phone. BT should only be turned ON on the phone after the PC has finished booting.
Off the top of my head these are the most common problems not covered in your guide (but it's a good start, thanks) but I'm sure there are many others that people will come across!
One other thing - In ActiveSync->Menu->Options->PC_Settings->Menu->Advanced the connection type can be left at USB and the phone will use either USB or BT. If it is set to Bluetooth (which it has to be for your excellent utility) then the USB connection does not work for ActiveSync.
Keep up the good work.
