    I have a bluetooth usb module plugged into my win7 desktop. Its configured and discoverable but as much as I search the A500 doesn't even say its there.

    What is it that you are trying to do with your computer?
    Bluetooth works great for mice and keyboards, but it doesn't have a lot of other functionality.
    If you get astro file manager from the market you can do bluetooth file transfer to windows or linux.

    I think Ellendry wants to tether but file transfer is easy enough.
