Help IT personnel aren't any Help

I have an IPAQ 5555 and my Boss has 5540, I'd like to be
able to communicate with him using Bluetooth. I've
looked and can't seem to make sense of the info
available .. Are there step by step instructions that I
could follow to be able to use Bluetooth.

please define "communicate"

There are very few ppc peer to peer options... you can send contacts,
etc, but as for a "walkie talkie" type of option, the only thing that I
know of is Microsoft Portrait (Google it)

Besides the Portrait solution proposed by Bev, ~jiangli/portrait/
, another solution may interest you...Its called ProximityMail...Get more information from

Please note that I have not used ProximityMail. Portrait works well although the audio is
half-duplex. You can call, using Portrait, direct IP to IP over your LAN.
