I want to connect a pair of bluetooth printer but all my com ports are assigned, to my dismay. Now please tell me if there is any way to reset the com ports of Windows Mobile. Thanks.

Windows Mobile has a registry just like Windows operating systems and it is possible to free  COM port from there. Open the registry editor and get inside

“HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESYSTEMCurrentControlSetControlCOM Name Arbiter”

On the right hand side select the key comDB and open it for modification. In the value section deletes all existing data and reset it back to ZERO. Before making changes take a registry backup and also post changes make restart to your mobile device. You may try installation of any free registry editor software as well.

 Alternatively, you can manually delete all existing COM ports from your mobile device and create a new one as per default options. The same can be used for later.
