"check bluetooth status of receiving device"

I have been trying to send mp3 files to my LG Mint Chocolate from my computer. These are ringtone files from the internet, so they're not huge. Everytime I try and send the file my phone says "check bluetooth status of recieving device". I've tried everything, what can I do for this to work?

How do I download my photos from LG Prada !! KF900 to my computer, LG PC suite doesn't seem to work!

Try to connect it directly without any driver ..and see if it is seeing the memory card inside like a separate drive (removable memory device ) in the My computer folder..Even from the Chocolate this can be done ...and I used to have a chocolate and never used a driver....every time I used to connect it was seen into the My computer as a removable storage device ...just like a memory stick ..

How to transfer music contacts videos etc from LG cookie phone into I phone

Hi, there are different ways you can send data on phone, you can use a blue tooth device
Below is a step of how you an send Data like video, music etc from LG to iphone.

How to Send Data to a Phone Via Bluetooth

Bluetooth is a type of technology found in electronics that allows you to send and receive signals and files wirelessly. Most commonly used in cell phone headsets, many people also use Bluetooth to transfer data. There is no set protocol for all devices, so instructions for use vary from one device to another. Check out the following loose guidelines for sending music from one Bluetooth phone to another, or from a Bluetooth-enabled computer to phone.


Verify that Bluetooth is turned on or enabled in both your devices. Most cell phones will have a Bluetooth menu in their Settings or Tools. For computers, you may see a Bluetooth icon in your system tray. If unsure, check your product manual for specific instructions.

Follow the instructions to pair (connect) your two devices. If you are asked for a passkey, try entering 0000 which is usually the default for any device.

When prompted on the other device, give permission for the original device to access it.

If transferring from phone to phone

Navigate to the song you want to send and hit the button that takes you to the options menu. Choose the option to send your song; depending on the brand of phone it may say "Send" or "Move."

The next menu should ask if you want to use a text message or Bluetooth to move or send the file. Choose Bluetooth.

When prompted on the phone receiving the file, accept it.
If transferring from computer to phone

Look for an option to browse the contents of the phone. Navigate to the data file or Multimedia folder on your phone.

Navigate to the place on your computer where your Data file is kept in a separate window.

Drag the file from its original location to the correct folder on your phone.

Accept the file when prompted by your phone.

Tips & Warnings

Pairing is usually the most difficult part of the process. Make sure you read your manual on both devices if it isn't working for you. If you don't see the menu to move or send your videos, your phone manufacturer may not allow it. Check your manual or with your carrier's tech support website. This process usually applies to MP3s and not ringtones.

Hope that helped.

Good luck.

LG shine: using my mp3s as ringtones

Make sure the file is mp3 format, 600 kb or smaller, and 30 seconds or less. You can make your own ringtones at the following sites:

Once you have your ringtones ready, there are many different steps you can follow depending on what you have available on your phone.

1. If you have internet/text messaging: sites like cellsea and myxertone will provide you with instructions.

2. If you have a usb cable: connect your phone making sure it's in Mass Storage Mode. You can do this by going to settings, connection, usb connection mode, mass storage. Open the folder for your phone on your computer. It should be one of the choices of storage when you go to My Computer. Place your ringtones into the Sounds folder. And voila! It should be in the ringtone menu in your phone.

3. If you have a MicroSD memory card: Create a folder on the memory card. Name it anything other than Music (the phone will automatically create a Music folder which can not be used as ringtones). Once you insert your card into your phone, the tunes should come up when you open your ringtone menu!

Hope this helps! Good luck! :)
