Third-party Bluetooth adapter alternative System
Sick of Apple's 'Temporarily unavailable' Bluetooth dongles yet? The BT-DG02 Bluetooth dongle from Epox is available now, $49.95 MSRP.

I ordered mine directly from Epox (free ground shipping, see Accessory ordering on their web site) and received it within a week. Works great with Apple's Bluetooth Preview 2 and my Ericsson T68. It is a little bigger than the 'temporarily unavailable' solution.

The Bluetooth adapter is back on Apple Store. Expected delivery time 8-10 days in Sweden, probably faster in the US.

Mitsumi USB BT adapter

The Mitsumi Bluetooth USB Adaptor works fine too. Tested with Ericsson R520 and T39 and Nokia 6210 (+ BT battery), 6310 and 7650. For the record, the Tactel Blue5 Palm adaptor is NOT compatible.

BlueBerry USB Bluetooth Adapter
Authored by: ghengis on Jul 22, '02 08:21:34PM

DevDepot carries BlueBerry USB Bluetooth adapter which recognizes my Palm m515 ahich has a Palm Bluetooth card with Bluetooth ver 1 software. The softare had to be loaded into the m515 via Mac OS 9 using Palm Desktop 4.0 for Mac. This softare cannot be installed or loaded into Palm Desktop 4.0 under Mac OS X at this time. Once loaded, I hotsync'd in OS 9.2 to the m515. Then using the BlueBerry USB adapter and the newly released Bluetooth Preview after switching back to OS X communication between the two was established.

Third-party Bluetooth adapter alternative
Authored by: Geobunny on May 07, '04 02:17:55PM

I know this is a very old topic, but this seems like the logical place to put it. I just bought an unbranded usb bluetooth adapter...but it doesn't work!

ASP recognises it as a "Bluetooth transceiver" and shows it as made by a company called "Broadcom Corp" (who recently bought out Widcomm by the sounds of things on the net). Anyway, it's a Bluetooth Class 2 device as opposed to the class 1 and 1.1 I'm seeing everywhere.

I'm wondering if that's the problem and if so, does anyone know if Apple will support class 2 devices any time soon?
