What do I need for Bluetooth?

I have XP Prof and a Sony Ericsson V600i phone. What do I need for a bluetooth connection between the two?

I know nothing about bluetooth, and would like to download music and ringtones, say, from the web, and transfer them to the phone.

If the phone has Bluetooth all you need is a Bluetooth Dongle to fit into a USB socket

a blue tooth dongle,they have ranges starting at 10m and up,they come with a driver cd and then follow instructions from there.once paired up you will then be able to achieve the things you want to do.

So ALL I need is something called a "Bluetooth Dongle"? Is that correct? Assuming the phone is capable of receiving Bluetooth signals, of course, I don't need to buy anything else?

Nope, if the phone has Bluetooth built in all you need is the USB Bluetooth "dongle" that's it!

Thank you for that Vangeliska. Sounds so simple - and it probably is!

From the Specs. it has Bluetooth

The V600i has some great features - video calling, a music player with FM radio, a 1.3 megapixel camera and video camera, a very high quality screen, Bluetooth and a multitasking capability. It performs well in these areas, but is sadly let down by poor ringtone volume (leading to missed calls) and poor voice quality as a result of the speaker being placed in an unusual position. These are significant downsides.

Is there a difference between a Bluetooth USB Dongle and a Bluetooth USB Adaptor?

Can you post a link to the USB Adaptor? not sure what it is.
