    I am using an AT&T Quickfire cell phone. Bluetooth will pair with another device however when I try to connect to another device it says service is not available.

    I will try checking the phone to see if it is FTP supported. I thought that it is since it is the newest phone out by AT&T. Thanks you for your support.

This problem means that one of the phones does not support Bluetooth File Transfer.

Bluetooth has lots of features, here are the 3 profiles:

File Transfer (FTP) - for transferring/receiving files.
Headset profile - for listing to music using the mono tone
Handfree profile - for Bluetooth headset to make a call

If your phone supports File Transfer Profile (FTP) but the other phone does not, that's the time you would receive the error 'service not available'. You have to make sure that both phones supports FTP.

If you have more questions about Bluetooth on phone, just let me know. Have a great day!

Even after pairing the recepient has to accept file from you the first time. Once that permission is given by the recepient following file be sent automatically. What phone are you using? May be there is some different prosedure there. Do let me know the details.

How to pair bluetooth


One device sends the Bluetooth signal. For example, your smartphone can send a Bluetooth signal to play music from the phone on a portable speaker, or you might send it to a wireless earphone to make hands-free phone calls.
The second device receives the Bluetooth signal and plays the sound or picture.
To pair them, first set the receiving device (example: Bluetooth speaker) in "pairing mode". This is usually done by pressing a certain button on the receiving device for 3 or 4 seconds. Next, on your sending device (example: your phone) open the Bluetooth settings and select to search for Bluetooth devices. Your receiving device should appear in the list of available Bluetooth devices. Tap to connect to the receiving device. This may take up to 15 seconds. You should see a message on one or both devices saying "Connected".

How do you pair a jawbone to a samsung t259 phone?


To set up Bluetooth on your phone

1. Go to Menu, select Connect or Connections or Connectivity:

Note! If the above steps do not work, please consult the user manual.

2. Bluetooth - Select On to enable Bluetooth.

3. My telephone's visibility - Select Shown to all if you want your device to be found by other Bluetooth devices. If you select Hidden, your device cannot be found by other devices.

4. My Bluetooth name - Define a name for your device. After you have activated your Bluetooth service and changed My phone's visibility to Shown to all, your phone and this name can be seen by other Bluetooth device users.

Sending data via Bluetooth

If your phone supports the Bluetooth 1.1 specification or earlier, you can only have one Bluetooth connection running on your phone at any one time.

1. Select or open the file you wish to send. For example, to send a photo to another device, open the Gallery application.

2. Select the file you wish to send, then select Options > Send > via Bluetooth.

3. The phone starts to search for devices within range.

Devices using Bluetooth technology that are within range will appear on the display. You should see a device icon, the device's name, the device type, or a short name. (A paired device is one where a Bluetooth connection already exists between your phone and the other device.)

• To interrupt the search, press Stop. The device list freezes and you can start to form a connection to one of the devices already found.

If you have searched for devices earlier, a list of the devices that were found previously is shown first. To start a new search, select More devices. If you switch off the phone, the list of devices is cleared and the device search needs to be started again before sending data.

4. Scroll to the device you want to connect with and press Select. The item you are sending is copied to Outbox and the note Connecting is shown.

5. Pairing (if this is not required by the other device, proceed to step 6.)

• If the other device requires pairing before data can be transmitted, a tone sounds and you are asked to enter a passcode. • Create your own passcode (1-16 characters long, numeric) and agree with the owner of the other device to use the same code. This passcode is used only once and you do not have to memorise it. • After pairing, the device is saved to the Paired devices view.

6. When the connection has been successfully established, the note Sending data is shown. Data received via Bluetooth can be found in the Inbox folder in Messaging. Tip: Pairing is a means of authentication. The users of the devices using Bluetooth technology should agree together what the passcode is, and use the same passcode for both devices in order to pair them. Devices that do not have a user interface have a preset passcode.

Checking the status of the Bluetooth connection

• When the Bluetooth icon is shown in standby mode, Bluetooth is active.

• When the Bluetooth icon is blinking, your phone is trying to connect to the other device. • When the Bluetooth icon is shown continuously, the Bluetooth connection is active.

Receiving data via Bluetooth

When you receive data via Bluetooth, a message alert tone is played and you are asked if you want to accept the message. If you accept, the item is placed in the Inbox folder in Messaging.

Disconnecting Bluetooth

A Bluetooth connection is disconnected automatically after sending or receiving data.

Hi, My Samsung mobile is GT-C3303. I have problems in connecting to the bluetooth device on my laptop machine to transfer the music files. I have tried both 0000 and 9999 and 1234 but nothing is helping...


you have to pair your samsung phone to your laptop first before you can start sending and receiving files through bluetooth.
an option is, turn the bluetooth on your laptop on, then the bluetooth of your mobile phone on. on your phone, search for devices, then once you see the name of the bluetooth device of your laptop, tap it then choose connect or pair, you will be asked for a passkey (you can input anything try 0) or in some devices wait until a pop screen appears which will contain the passkey usually 5 to 6 digits. then click ok
another option is (i tried this using my samsung corby wifi and a samsung n150 laptop and it works just fine) make sure that the bluetooth on your laptop and phorne is turned on. on your laptop click on the bluetooth icon or click the file you want to send, then right click, then choose send to bluetooth, your laptop will then search for available devices, just choose your mobile phone then automatically there is a popscreen which has a passkey, then click ok. on your phone you will be asked to allow to connect thru the laptop, just click ok, then make sure that the passkey matches between your phone and laptop. (usually it is automatic, you just need to click ok) you should be able to send and receive files thru bluetooth on your phone and laptop

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.

I have an L.G. Shine and cant get the blue tooth to work


The bluetooth of the phone is in the settings of the phone. To get it to work, turn on the phone, then you go to the settings, go to bluetooth and turn it on from there, once it is turned on, then you ensure the device you are trying to pair with is turned on, then you try to send or receive a file from other devices, it will require you to pair the devices up to be able to send or receive files using the bluetooth.
Use a simple pairing passkey to pair the devices up, like 1111 or 0000, that should help.
Hope this was helpful. Thanks for using fixya.
