Is this working before? The only problem that I could see is the driver. Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling the Bluetooth (BT) driver of your external BT device to the computer?

What is the brand of your Bluetooth (BT) adapter?
What is the operating system of your computer (Win XP, Vista)
What kind of BT device you would like to transfer files? (Is it a cell phone, PDA)
What kind of file are you trying to transfer (MP3, Video or Picture)?

On the blank box that came out the time you tried transferring a file, do you see an option 'Search for Bluetooth devices in range'? If you see that option, click it and the computer should start searching for the BT device near the computer.

You have to make sure that the cellphone or PDA is paired up with the BT adapter before trying to send a file.

Please answer the questions above and get back to me so that I could further assist you! Thank you!

How do I transfer photos from my folder (in my phone) & phone to either my sim cad or computer


If your computer has a bluetooth device installed in it, and your phone also has a bluetooth device installed in it, simply turn them on and, If you want to send files (photos inclusive) from your computer to your phone, right click on the file (photo) you wish to send, click on send via bluetooth, search for your phone but make sure your phone's bluetooth is turned on. When you find your phone on the list of available devices on your computer, select it and if the computer asks for a pass code, give it any number, like (1), and it will send the pic to your phone. If you wish to send files from your phone to your computer, go to the bluetooth icon on the navigation area of your computer, click on it and select receive a file, then your computer is now ready to receive files and you can now send the photos from your phone to your computer. On the other hand, if there is no bluetooth device installed on any of the devices, you can use the USB cord that came with your phone. Connect it to your computer, it would first of all try to install the device driver software. After then you can send files from your phone to your computer and from your computer to your phone.

I bought my son a blackberry curve 8250 a few days ago. I cannot send any files to his new phone via bluetooth, even though the phones do pair with each other. Please help!


When you send over bluetooth on a blackberry and the handset pairs you need to select the file type you are send and be in the folder to received. Once in that folder you need to click the blackberry key and select received via bluetooth.

To send or receive pictures or any file, you need to be sure that your phones bluetooth is turned on, without it your phone will not be able to send or receive pictures or any files. Also, you can transfer files to a computer using a USB cable, connect it to a computer and other devices that Has a USB hub. Files can also be transferred through the SD memory card, you can transfer pictures to the memory card and remove it from your device, then you turn off your phone, remove the memory card, install it into other devices that allows memory cards, then you copy pictures from the memory card to other devices.
To use your bluetooth in transferring the pictures from your phone to other bluetooth devices, then you turn on youe bluetooth by going to the phones menu, select the settings, then you go to the bluetooth and turn it on, make sure the bluetooth device of other phones and devices are turned on then you select the picture to send and select via bluetooth, it will search for the available bluetooth devices, then you select the one you are willing to send your pictures to then you either pair id the device is not familiar, ensure you use a password that is easy to remember to pair with the other device.
That way your phone will be able to send the pictures. That should solve the problem. Hope this information assisted you!

How should i send or receive data from other mobile.


  1. Use a cellphone with Bluetooth (wireless connection), or even a USB connection (which is a computer port). These are all good ways to communicate with other devices.
  2. If your computer does not have the hardware for a Bluetooth connection, then buy the adaptor, sometimes called a 'dongle'. The adapter plugs into a USB port. It will be quite cheap, something like 10 to 20 American dollars. This adapter will have software for the connection process, which lets you transfer files from the computer to your phone, and the other way around.
  3. Make sure your computer is equipped with Bluetooth technology (either integrated into the machine or a USB dongle) and active.
  4. Turn on Bluetooth on your mobile device.
  5. Turn on your phone and go into 'Settings' in the Main Menu
  6. Keep going down until you find 'Bluetooth' (Sometimes it may be under 'Connectivity)
  7. Click on it and find 'Turn Bluetooth on' (or something similar) and press 'On'. You can now send and receive files. Once you receive a file, it will most likely be under 'Received Files'. This option can often be found in the Settings or Connectivity menu of your phone.
  8. Pair your computer with your mobile device by making both devices discoverable (also known as visible or unhidden) in the Bluetooth options. Once both are visible, search for Bluetooth devices on your mobile phone
  9. Locate the name of your computer in the results list and select it.
  10. Enter a 4 to 8 digit passcode of your own choosing and press continue.
  11. Once your devices are paired, you can send and receive files.
  12. There are several methods to send a file to your mobile device. One method is to copy the file from your computer, navigate to your mobile device (often found in My Computer or My Bluetooth Places) and then paste the file to the phone. Another option is to right-click on the desired file and select Send To --> Bluetooth Device --> (mobile phone's name).
  13. While the file is being transferred, you should see a progress bar on your computer and/or phone. Once the file is finished transferring, a message stating such should show up on your device's screen.
  14. Find the transferred file on your mobile phone by using the phone's built-in file explorer.

Bluetooth for sciphone


Turn off bluetooth, remove the phone or the other device that is sending, if paired. Turn on bluetooth and its visibility. Try receiving again. Also check with other devices/mobiles

I cant send data via bluetoorh to other phone... or receive data from other phone throught via bluetooth... cant detect other device after searching for other phone throught via bluetooth. Im using P990i...


When you are receiving the file, check whether you have checked the Visible to other option. And it will ask for the confirmation when you will be receiving the file from other phone whether to accept or not. While sending the phone to which you are sending data should accept the file you are sending.

Let me know if you have any comments.

Bluetooth problem.


Your phone probably has a lock on it which prevents you from receiving ringtones, games, music, stuff like that from other users

LG Prada receiving via bluetooth troubleshoot


There is a restriction in the JPG ratio/pixel size on the Prada.
You need to first get your photos on to your computer and check the size of them is 640 x 480 and that they are standard .jpg
Make sure any file you send is not 'in use' I.E. you don't have the file open on your computer - open files/in use files cannot be sent.
Also, after every download to the phone, you need to move the jpeg file to the external memory as the phone itself can only cope with a few files at a time before registering as full.
