    I've got the MSI 100m dongle for connecting to a Samsung D500 phone. Works perfect within about ~10m, depending on walls etc.

    AFAIK Class 1 dongles are the '100m' ones, class 2 are the cheaper ones.

    Thanks Duke
    The one I am looking at is Gigabyte GN-BTD02 -100m think it should be o/k.

    I've had lots of problems with USB bluetooth dongles and my mobile phone. If you have a cable supplied with the handset try using that...

    I bought the Belkin Bluetooth USB Adapter Class 1 - 100m v1.2 ages ago and it has done me no wrong. My phone is connected and my Bluetooth Wacom tablet is connected thru it. No Probs with it whatsoever.
