    TV Tuner: Pinnacle 50i
    HDD: 160GB SATA + 40GB IDE

    I want to conenct my Nokia 6708 (blutooth enabled cellphone) to my PC with the above config...how do I know that my PC has Blutooth conenctivity?

    If my PC does not have bluetooth connectivity how can I get it...i.e. is there a hardware upgrade I need to make...if yes please mention what I need to do.

    Thanks in Advance

    No, Your PC doesn't have Onboard support for Bluetooth..

    You'll need a Bluetooth USB Dongle, which costs Rs. 800+
    Consult any PC Stores, pick a Belkin or any Good Brand.

    Thanks a million to both Subbu & Vishal for your quick replies...I've bought myself a blutooth dongle costing Rs.350 with a 1 year warranty...I'm posting this reply using the same.
    Thanks n Take Care
