I want to connect a Blackberry Model DF2295 to a Dell OptiPlex 390 Mini-Tower running Windows 10. The Dell has an Intel Core i3 - 2100@ 3.1 GHz 3.1GHz CPU. I wish to connect using a Bluetooth connection, if possible. The Blackberry is already connected to the house router via Wi-Fi, but I want it to directly connect to this computer using Bluetooth.

I am a total novice when it comes to Bluetooth devices and protocols, etc. At the same time, I am an expert on Ethernet, computers in general, etc., having run them from the 1970's into the 1990's, in university, hospital, banking, corporate retail, and engineering environments, among others. I just never had a reason to get into Bluetooth communications.

I am now retired and just want to do this one thing! Happy Easter! M. Reed Brooks

Does your Dell have bluetooth installed/enabled? If not then you need a bluetooth "dongle" - a usb device that will allow bluetooth compatible devices to connect tot he Dell.

Belkin and others have such dongles for not much cash. I would encourage not to get one the cheapies from wherever; but to get one that is a well known brand - Belkin being jut one of course.

Presuming your Blackberry and the Dell are bluetooth enabled then you need to "pair" the two.

This link discusses the whole process; but is not specific to your Blackberry. Nonetheless it may be of help in following the process.

There is range limit of course with bluetooth; it's a lot less than with wifi... And some pholks consider bluetooth not as secure as wifi "can" be...
