I have no clue if bluetooth 3.0 is backwards compatible with bluetooth 2.0

Either way, we need the make/model of your laptop, what version of windows you are running, and the make/model of your cellphone to get a better idea of the specifications of each device.

Are you using a bluetooth dongle? Or is the bluetooth built-in to your laptop?
