I had the same issue with N97. The phone was always connected to the data packet connection, making it unavailable for other apps (including modem functionality).
No apps were running on the phone (web, mail etc were all closed.)
Rebooting the phone cleared the issue.
This a N97 Bug already reported in the forum but not answered or fixed by Nokia at this time.
Same problem here with my Nokia 5800 XpressMusic...
The problem is, I guess in the driver itself, 'cause it won't query the modem at all... though, I did succed doing that only once (I'm not sure how!?) when I let the Bluetooth software install the modem itself (simply as the 'Bluetooth modem'), but then it wasn't recognized by Nokia's software...
Nokia!? Please respond...
I had same problem with 5800 xpress
just go to device manager, remove the nokia bluetooth modem, and while it's connected via bluetooth to pcsuite go to control panel>modems (remove all nokia bluetooth modems from there also, if any) and click ADD, it will search phones and modems and find your xpress phone and install nokia modem .
it worked for me
I am having the same problem.
I use a VAIO Win Vista with a Nokia 5800.
The system was working properly, connecting to the internet from the computer using the phone as modem thru a BT connection. I don't think I changed anything and it stopped functioning.
Any body came up with a solution?

I had the same problem as this on a Nokia E51.
The general solution to this problem for any phone.... from first principles...
1... Delete the Modem entry for the phone, in Phone and Modems,
2... Delete the RFCOMM Protocol TDI in Device Manager.
3... Delete the pairing for the phone in Nokia PC Suite.
4... Unpair the computer in your phone handset
5... Re-Pair the phone, and test its paired and connects
in PC Suite.
6... Rescan for devices, Device Manager.
This will reinstall the 'RFCOMM Protocol TDI' in Device Manager.
7... Check you are connecting to the correct access end-point for your network.
7.1... enter the correct network address in the PC Suite
'Connect to Internet settings', Access point box.
If you configure the connection manually,
there is a greater chance it will work, as opposed to auto.
7.2... enter the correct network address in the modem Properties,
Advanced, 'Extra initialisation commands' box.
Extra Initialisation commands for the UK Vodafone network would be
If you choose the 7.2 option you don't need PC Suite open to connect in future. You can simply find the connection in Start Menu, 'Connect to' menu. Either 'double-click', or 'right-click | connect' and you will be connected.
This network connection is normally created by PC Suite. If you play around with it and connections start failing, you could 'right-click | delete' and set it back up in PC Suite. to reinitialise it back to sensible settings - remebering to re-enter your network access end-point.
That should deal with any hosed connection, whatever the reported reason on connect.
