When you use a Windows Embedded NavReady-based device, you experience one or both of the following problems.

Problem 1

When you use Bluetooth to download the phone book and the call history to the device, the port remains in sniff mode. Therefore, it takes a long time to finish the download.

Problem 2

You cannot use the Phone Book Access Profile (PBAP) to download the phone book and the call history. This problem occurs when you use the Samsung Instinct SPH-M800 device.
