How to use Bluetooth technology to connect laptop and cell phone?


We can use Bluetooth technology to connect laptop and cell phone. We can move videos, images, photos etc from a desktop computer or a laptop to our cell phones. In order to use Bluetooth technology to connect laptop and cell phone we need a laptop and a cell phone which support this technology.
If the laptop doesn't support it, we can use a USB Bluetooth dongle. Just plug it into the USB port of the desktop computer or laptop. Leave the rest to Microsoft Windows. It will find the driver and install it itself. If it is not supported, we can manually install it via the manufacturer's compact disk. Follow these simple steps in order to use Bluetooth technology to connect laptop and cell phone: (In this example, we are using Windows Vista.)
Turn on the Bluetooth feature on your cell phone.
Make this setting: my Phone's visibility -> Shown to all on the cell phone.
Open Bluetooth Devices by clicking on its icon in the Control Panel.

google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad);
Look for the Bluetooth driver in the Device Manager and double-click on its icon.

How to connect to laptop?


Hello,

You can connect Nokia 2690 using bluetooth and using Nokia connectivity Cable CA-101 which will fit to the USB port of your laptop.
carloadrian_1.jpg
(NOKIA connectivity cable)

Procedure on how to connect:

1. Bluetooth (This will work with the laptop with bluetooth)

First, remember to turn on the Bluetooth feature and make it discoverable by other devices (My Phone's visibility -> Shown to all) on cell phone, so that it can be detected by laptop.

Then, click on the add devices in the control panel of your computer. Click start> control panel

2. Add Bluetooth Device Wizard window will appear, tick My devices is set up and ready to be found and click Next.

3. The wizard will then search the Bluetooth devices nearby, and will show the found devices. Here the wizard found my cell phone named David. Click the device you want to add, after that click Next.

carloadrian_2.jpg

4. Ok. Here the wizard will ask whether you need a passkey to add your device, so that the communication data between laptop and cell phone will be encrypted later, here I would recommend you to either select Choose a passkey for me or Let me choose my own key. In this example, I select choose a passkey for me.

carloadrian_3.jpg

The wizard will then show the passkey and you need to key in to your cell phone. After that, the laptop will try to install the Bluetooth device. If you have Bluetooth program for your cell phone, you can install it as Windows Vista might have problem to install the device . For my case, I install Nokia PC Suite on the laptop, so I can transfer wallpapers and videos later.

Note: Also your cell phone will get the prompt to accept connection from laptop, and you need to click yes.

carloadrian_4.jpg
5. At last, click Finish to complete the Add Bluetooth Device Wizard.

carloadrian_5.jpg
6. And now, you will see the new bluetooth device added which is your Nokia 2690 phone.

carloadrian_6.jpg
Here's another way on how to connect your cellphone to your laptop.

2. Hard Connection using Nokia connectivity Cable CA-101

carloadrian_7.jpgYou can get this from any nokia stores.

Procedure:

Just connect the other end of the wire to your cellphone and the other end to the usb port in your laptop. Follow the onscreen instructions in your cellphone.

Check your laptop if your cellphone has been detected, once it's connected you can then access your pictures or other files in your cellphone. You can even transfer files.

I hope this helps.

Please rate this solution. Don't forget to leave your comments/suggestions on how I can improve my service.

Thanks..

I want to be able to put the videos I record from my phone onto my computer how do u do that...


This may or may not work. Connect phone with USB to computer. Click start, then "computer". Right click on removable disk (F:). Click "open as removable device". If you are able to access the phone's files, you should find a folder containing your videos.
However, here's a better way. Connect your device to your computer using bluetooth. Both devices will have to be bluetooth enabled. On your phone go to "settings", then "wireless and network", then "bluetooth". Click "enable bluetooth". Also click "visible" so your computer will recognize the device.
Now click "scan".
If your phone does not find your computer. Then go to your computer. Click start, and type in "bluetooth". Choose bluetooth device to add your phone. Your phone should be "visible" so your computer can find it and add it.
On your computer you can use the transfer wizard (just click start then type in bluetooth) and click "receive a file" and click "next" or on your camera go to the video folder, highlight it, click menu, then click share, there should be quite a list, choose "bluetooth". Your phone should scan and find your computer. Voila!

Can i install a bluetooth in my laptop?


If your laptop have inbuilt bluetooth facility here's how
How to Set up a Bluetooth enabled device To set up a Bluetooth enabled device, you need to do three things:
  1. Add a Bluetooth adapter to your computer.
    This is usually done by plugging the adapter into a USB port. (If a Bluetooth adapter is already built in or attached to your computer, ignore this step.)
  2. Set up the device so that your computer can find it.
    To do this, you must:
    • Turn the device on.
    • Make it discoverable.
    To learn how to make a device discoverable, check the information that came with your device or go to the manufacturer’s website.
  3. Install the device.
    To install most devices, such as a mobile phone, keyboard, mouse, or personal digital assistant (PDA), you can use Bluetooth Devices in Control Panel. If you have Bluetooth wireless technology installed on your computer, follow these steps:
    To install a Bluetooth enabled device
    1. Click the Start button getcontent.aspx?assetid=4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33&documentset=en-us&renderkey=signed1, click Control Panel, click Hardware and Sound, and then click Bluetooth Devices.
    2. Click Add, and then follow the instructions.
Note
  • Encryption features and a passkey can help to secure your data. However, these and other security measures can be compromised or fail and, if that happens, your data could be visible to or accessible by other devices or computers within range. Therefore, Bluetooth wireless technology should not be considered completely secure.

    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.
