Can't find bluetooth connection on laptop to connect 2cell phone

Im trying to connect the compuer with my phone via bluetooth and the help window says to go under contol panel, hardware and sound, then bluetooth devices. The problem is that there is no option "bluetooth devices".
When I slide the bluetooth button over on the front of the laptop it says "no bluetooth device". The phone bluetooth is on. Do I need some other sort of hardware? What's up?

Make sure you have bluetooth on on both, and that you are connected via bluetooth to your computer.

Turn on pda net on your DI and enable bluetooth dun.

Now go to your bluetooth settings on your computer and double click on your device, a new service should pop up allowing you to enable dun/modem and select that.

right click on your di bluetooth connection on your computer and create a dial up modem.

select the generic bluetooth modem, not the pdanet modem.

Type 123 in the phone number and leave the username and password blank and click connect.

Now you can right click on your DI bluetooth icon on your computer and select connect to the modem connection you just created.

After using my DI as a modem over bluetooth there are a few things to consider.

1. yeah it works great.

2. Its a battery **** fest.

Constant 3g with constant bluetooth = constant battery draw.

I would still recommend using your pdanet via the usb cable, seeing as this will keep the battery level charged, as well as same speed!

As an alternative to connecting to the PC via the USB cable, try connecting to your computer via Bluetooth as long as your desktop PC supports this.
Here is a link to a guide on how to connect from Bluetooth to your PC.

You can your phone to your laptop via bluetooth or by data cable.
To access internet from your laptop using phone is something using dial up networking.To use dial up networking you have to create a connection profile.First go to control panel->network connections->in that network connection take a view at side bar their is create new connection.Then new connection wizard window comes up click next and choose your profile(if u want to use it via bluetooth choose ddial up modem).

I cant connect my samsung S5233 to my laptop


Hi

Please let me know how are you trying to connect your phone through the cable provided with the phone or through bluetooth?

If you want to connect your Phone with Laptop via Bluetooth, you need to have a Laptop equipped with bluetooth facility built-in, through which you can pair your handset with the handset bluetooth and transfer files.

Else if you are trying to connect it via the cable provided with the phone, you can set your handset connectivity to USB mode and check if your laptop recognizes your phone as a USB device or not, in case it doesn't then you need to install the Samsung PC Studio software which came with the phone and then you would be able to connect your phone to your laptop

Could not found the bluetooth connection or device


Make sure you have every driver for your laptop loaded. Then let's suppose you want to connect your phone to the laptop bluetooth: Turn on the bluetooth in your mobile and make it visible to the other bluetooth device then only your handphone will detect the other bluetooth device and viceversa. Most of the recent notebooks are having bluetooth enabled but in some notebooks we need to turn on the bluetooth by using the buttons which indicated as bluetooth. Once you turn on then get into your computer running windows vista type this following command in the search box or in the run box "ncpa.cpl" it will take you to the network connection window [you can even use control panel option to reach the network options]. In that window where you find the bluetooth connection.Click the icon first and look it on the top of the window where you can see an option "Connect the the bluetooth"click it then you need to add the bluetooth device click add. It will find your hand phone then it will ask the passpharse key you can create one and then your handphone alert you to type the same key that u given in the notebook.Once it matched it will connect automatically. Later type bluetooth in the search option where you will get an option as Bluetooth(Transfer files wizard) . Click it then you receive or send the file via bluetooth between your notebook and handphone. Hope it helped.

I can't receive and send a message by using pc suite


hello there!! thanks for using Fixya.com!

I guess these requirements will help you...

Requirements
To send and receive SMS messages via a mobile phone using a Windows PC, you need:
  • a mobile phone that can be connected to your PC (some mobile phones do not have an interface for connecting to a PC)
  • a Windows program that can control the mobile phone to send and receive SMS messages
Today, most mobile phones support at least one of the following options to connect to a PC:
  • Via infrared (IrDA)
  • Via Bluetooth
  • Via a USB cable
  • Via a serial cable
The infrared and Bluetooth option should be very useful to many notebook computer users since nowadays many notebook computers have built-in infrared or Bluetooth support.
The Windows program for sending and receiving SMS messages is provided by some mobile phone manufacturers. For example, Nokia offers a software package called Nokia PC Suite to their mobile phone users. It can be downloaded free of charge from Nokia's web site. Microsoft has also released a free program called SMS Sender that enables Windows users to send SMS messages via a GSM mobile phone from a PC.
In the following sections, we will explain how to use Microsoft SMS Sender to send SMS messages on your Windows PC.

Hope this will help you..have a nice day! Or try to reinstall the CD (pc suite) on your laptop or pc, this will make it very helpful as well.
