I have two different brand phones connected via Bluetooth to a W530. It recognizes and has paired both phones but when I try to connect it gives the message "No device ID given." I have researched the error message and found many related items, but nothing that helped resolve the problem.
The device manager shows no errors. I reinstalled the devices and the BT software, and updated the BIOS. What am I missing?
W530. 2436CTO. i7-3840QM. W7Pro x64. 32GB RAM. 256GB SSD

Update: I recently paired and connected a new Bose BT speaker to the W530 and confirmed that BT is working. The speaker paired instantly and connects as expexcted when turned on.
But I still have problems connecting the phones. I tried an older phone yesterday and it paired correctly like the other two, but when I clicked the connect button I got the same "No Device ID given." error message as I did on the other phones. I have now paired a Motorola Droid, Blackberry Z10 and Blackberry 9550 phones, but they will not connect after pairing. The 9550 is an older phone so I assume the problem is a basic BT driver issue. I had a similar BT problem on my W520 and resolved it after I reinstalled the original Microsoft native BT drivers. I tried that on the W530 without success.
Device Manager shows everything working properly. I do not understand how to find and enter the Device ID and would greatly appreciate any help with this.
Thanks - John
