However, as others have reported, the Treo does strange things with creating USB tty ports before the sync starts. This interacts poorly with J-Pilot, which means it's spotty as to whether the sync will work right or not.
Add to that that I wanted to play around with bluetooth, and I decided to have a go.

Choose a name for the connection. Select "PC" for the Connect to: box, and "Bluetooth" for the Via:. Tap to find the PC you're looking for. Assuming you find it, select it and make it a "trusted device." If you don't find it, see the links below on diagnosing bluetooth problems.
Click the "Modem" side of the selection bar above the hotsync logo. Tap at the top of the screen for the menu, and select Modem Sync Prefs. Click Network, then OK.
Under the hotsync logo you should see the name of the connection you created before. If so, you're all set. You can test your connection by issuing this command from your command line:
pilot-xfer -p net: -l
and tapping the hotsync logo. If all works well, you should have a list of names spit out on your screen.
