Bluetooth not accepting anything

Hi, My G1 is not accepting any photo's or music from any other phone. It is trying to pair up with any bluetooth connection turned on around it but when I send stuff from another device the other device tells me that connection was failed. I am seriously thinking of getting rid of this G1 it has so many flaws.

    I was trying to transfer a ringtone from my old Nokia (t-mobile) to G1(t-mobile). It's paired with the device but when I send that ringtone Nokia shows the massage 'unable to connect'. I tried to cennect G1 to computer but the computer also didn't find the G1. I really want to transfer some ringtones from my old phone to new one. If anyone know the way to do it please tell.

Hi
I was trying to transfer some ringtones from old phone to G1 and facing the same problem.
And now somewhere from net I found the solution to my problem.
Although it could not be done by bluetooth, but my problem is solved now.
You can also try it. It may help you out.

> Transfer ringtones/music/photos from your phone to Desktop
> Connect G1 to Desktop by USB cable
> On the top of G1 screen it will show the icon of USB (connected)
> Scroll down from the icon and select 'copy files from computer'
> Select 'Mount'
> On desktop a massage will appear, click 'open folder & show files'.
> Copy & Paste files from computer to G1. Now your files are in G1
> If you want to set any song as ringtone press & hold that song, a menu will appear and you can select 'set as ringtone'

The G1 does not support bluetooth file transfers of any kind yet. It should eventually but it is not possible right now.

I am trying to figure out how to send music files over bluetooth. I can turn on my bluetooth, then turn on discoverability, but don't really know where to go from there. I connected with my friend's...


HTC G1 android does not come with file transfer over bluetooth. What you have to do is root your phone and download apps like blueX to transfer files thru bluetooth. hope this helps

Bluetooth in my G1 doesn't work-it can see other phones around but is unable to connect to them,it can only pair with them.Besides that I can't send or receive pic messages.What should I do?


Nothing. That's exactly how it's designed, both the G1 and G2 (a.k.a. HTC Hero) have a very crippled form of Bluetooth which cannot be used for file transfers of any kind.

It will pair up for Bluetooth headsets, but even then the chipset will not allow Bluetooth voice dialling.

As this is purely a hardware limitation there are no apps, firmware updates or updated OS releases which can fix it.

Sorry to disappoint you, but I hope that you've found my posting to be of some use. All I ask in return is that you take a moment to rate my answer.

How to transfer music using bluetooth of blackberry7130g


There is no SD memory in the 7130g, so you would only have 64mb max for songs (I am sure some of that is being used for applications).

However, if you want to transfer ringtones from a phone with bluetooth you can pair with that phone and when they send the file, you get a prompt to accept it.

Bluetooth headset problem


There are two types of profiles that Bluetooth headsets uses. One, it is called the A2DP (Advanced Digital Profile) and second is called the Headset profile (Mono).

The A2DP is used for listening music that's transmitted from the phone to the headset.
The Headset profile is used for calling. But the A2DP can also be used for calling if the phone or the headset support it.

If one of your device (either the phone or the headset) doesn't support it, then that could be the reason why you couldn't hear the sound.

If both devices support A2DP, make sure that your headset is connected to the phone via the A2DP profile.

You need to refer to the phone manual to see if it's supported by your phone and how to connect to it.

Hope I explained it properly. Have a great day!

Bluetooth not accepting anything


The T-Mobile G1 doesn't actually support file transfer through bluetooth :S So it's not faulty, it's just not programmed to do that. Sorry! However it should be able to find your bluetooth headset, it always finds mine. Maybe the headset is faulty?

T Mobile Wing bluetooth and music help please


Hi fazioli73,

With Bluetooth enabled cell phones, if it has a music player, the only device the music player will recognize to output audio is a set of Bluetooth Headphones, not a Bluetooth Headset.

Once you have the Bluetooth Headphones, set them into pairing mode. Then go into your Bluetooth options in your phone, and go into add/search for device. Once your phone recognizes your Bluetooth headphones, and you have it set as your main Bluetooth device, your music player should play through the headphones at that point.

Sincerely,
Gina, Communities Connection Manager
