Question about HTC G1

1 Answer

Bluetooth My husband and I both have upgraded to G1 phones and neither phone will connect to bluetooth, we have tried with several phones, we can pair up to another phone (and each other) but when we try and send something neither G1 phones will be found despite us ticking the discoverable tab. The phone manual does not list anything like this. Can you help please as we are at a loss as what we are missing. Many thanks

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.

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?

Bluetooth not accepting anything


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'

Can't hear anything in my bluetooth headset, mic is working


Hi--First, make sure your "mute" function is off.  Try holding both volume buttons at the same time for a second or two.  If that doesn't help, while you're having a conversation, either with or without bluetooth, make sure your phone's volume is turned up.  On a lot of phones the volume button will control both ringer and conversation volumes, but turning it up without the phone in use only affects the ringer volume.  My husband thought there was something wrong with his bluetooth until we noticed his phone volume was set too low--not as noticeable on handset, but bluetooth apparently needs volume up pretty high!
